Story
We are so happy to introduce you to Toasted Marshmallow and thanks to the shelter his lab work and dental have been performed and he's available for adoption. He's been in a foster home for 2 weeks and this is what we've learned, Toasted Marshmallow is a delight! He has the energy of a much younger dog. I would say he's the most fun loving dog I've ever had live with me. He's so good, quiet, and lovable. He follows me around everywhere. Toasted Marshmallow checks all the boxes, except he hasn't been exposed to cats, but his demeaner tells us he would likely welcome any creature into his realm.Meet 13-year-old Toasted Marshmallow--named by my 13-year-old daughter because this adorable and fun-loving Maltese-Poodle (Maltipoo) has one rear brown paw from the dominating gene of the brown poodle. Marshmallow is healthy and loves to sleep in your lap after a playful round of scratch my butt. He is very obedient and when not receiving attention, he will quietly cuddle himself in his bed. Marshmallow was recently neutered and had a dental that removed many rotten teeth. He has healed quickly and is waiting patiently for his forever home and family.

Story
Meet Buell! DOB: May 2019Weight: 9 lbsDisposition: Eager to please, gentle, friendlyHistory: Rescued from a shelter in LA County by The Barking Lot in May 2024 where he was at risk of euthanasia due to alopecia (hair loss). Mistaken for a Chinese Crested, completed hairless and scabby infected skin, poor Buell felt horrible. He was emaciated and clearly not cared for to any degree.Best Home: Buell would like a single or a couple who are looking for a chill little friend who will roll with the flow and be there when you want to feel that sense of companionship and unconditional love. Can't you just see that little face peering up at you with that smile patiently awaiting cuddles and ready to join you for a social outing. Amazing Qualities: Gentle soul!If you're interested in meeting this dog, please visit our website to fill out an adoption application: www.thebarkinglot.net/adoptOur dogs are located in San Diego County, CA.

Story
Meet Coffee Shop Chrissy! Coffee Shop Chrissy entered Redlands Animal Shelter as a stray. When she wasn't reclaimed, we scooped her up on March 21st. Chrissy is 16 years old and weighs 11 lbs. She is feeling better after a much-needed haircut and grooming! Coffee Shop Chrissy went on a two-week Frosted Fling, so we could learn what she is like in a home. Her Fling Mom reports: "Coffee Club Chrissy made a little progress during her time with me. She no longer flinches and jerks away from me when I touch her. Here's what I've learned about her: - She's a good eater - She gets along with everyone - She prefers to go potty outside if she can get there - She can't hear much, if anything at all - She has limited eyesight and will flinch when something will appear in front of her, or if she walks from shade into sunlight - She is not interested in walks but may enjoy a stroller ride - Her favorite pastimes are sleeping and eating - She loves ear and butt rubs - She sleeps through the night in her pen (so she doesn't get lost or stuck somewhere) - She is very quiet Chrissy is a lovely old lady. She just needs to know someone is there for her." While Chrissy waits for her forevery family, she is on second Fling. We are so glad she is receiving extra TLC in the comforts of a home. Her Fling Mom shares: "Coffee Shop Chrissy is a beautiful flower in my bountiful garden of pups. Honestly, I would keep her, but we need your help. Please find a soft spot in your heart to give her a forever home. I just can't take her traveling with us. It wouldn't be fair to her. She needs a familiar place to hang out. She eats well, takes only a pain pill twice a day in her food, and prefers to go potty outside. Otherwise she will use a potty pad. She is a quiet, gentle soul." Coffee Shop Chrissy needs a loving home for the remainder of her life. She doesn't ask for much other than to be treated with understanding and gentle care. If you have a spot in your heart for this sweet super senior, please let us know!
