Story
DOB: August 2018Weight: 27 lbsDisposition: Confident, Inquisitive, PlayfulEthel was rescued on 5th August 2020 during a slaughterhouse closure together with another 14 dogs conducted by FOUR PAWS in Kampong Thom, Cambodia. After rescue she was housed at Animal Rescue Cambodia in Phnom Penh until she flew stateside at the beginning of December 2020 when she joined us at The Barking Lot.Ethel has the cutest little ears there ever was and their a dead giveaway for her Shar Pei roots! This lovely girl used to be timid around other dogs, especially at dinner time. Like many of our rescues who have been through traumatic experiences, she gets defensive about her food. The rest of the time, Ethel can be coy, but she is learning to trust again and is really relaxed with her caretakers. Ethel has a lovely, inquisitive nature and is building trust with new people daily. She enjoys handling and cuddles from people she trusts and is treat motivated. If you're interested in meeting Ethel, please visit our website and fill out an adoption application: www.thebarkinglot.net/adoptTo initiate the adoption process for this dog, please complete our online application by clicking below. Your adoption coordinator will respod to you via email once they receive your application: www.thebarkinglot.net/adopt

Story
Cuddly and a great companion! Howdy! My name is Charlie, and I’m a 5-year-old, 64-pound Shar Pei Mix male, looking for my furever home. I’m a special guy who is just a big cuddle bug.  I’ve already been neutered, and I’m fully potty-trained.  As far as my health goes, though, I do have some anxiety and allergy challenges.  My eyes, skin, and ears are typically affected by my allergic reactions, and because of this, I’m currently on a couple of medications.  These include: Cytopoint Injections (price varies by vet), Apoquel (~$81 for a month’s supply, depending on where purchased and market value).    I was taken in with my original owners as a TAP puppy in 2018.  Over the years, I’ve had my fair share of health and behavioral issues, but my humans were always able to manage them.  Things reached another level, though, once my humans had a baby.  Ever since, I’ve become very anxious, territorial, and protective of my baby sister.  When others are coming near or inside my home, I’ll show signs of aggression and will bark, growl, and lunge.  This has just been a really tough transition for me to make, and I don’t think I’ll be able to fully adjust.  Because of this situation, I think I’d do much better in a home where there isn’t a lot of stimulation (i.e. people coming over, young kids).  I’d also prefer to be the only pet since I’m not dog friendly, and I have a strong prey drive around kitties.  I don’t have any separation anxiety, however, and can be left home alone while at work without any issues.  I know I’d make a great companion for someone (either a single person or a couple without kids) who is looking for a lazy boy who they can cuddle with on the couch.  Someone with experience with a breed like mine (Shar Pei) would be preferred.  "The Animal Pad recognizes that taking in a new dog can pose a challenge to the entire family. Due to his size and leash reactivity, Charlie’s adoption package includes a FREE four-week scholarship with our partner Goodpup (https://goodpup.com/). Goodpup offers virtual, individualized training to ensure you, your dog, and your family have the skills needed to thrive together. GoodPup Scholarships include: 4+ weeks of positive reinforcement training 24/7 chat for questions and support Access to a behavior team to assist in advanced cases" Do you think you could be the one? If so, my adoption fee is $250 and that includes spaying/neutering, shots, and microchip.  If you want to take me home, please fill out the form on the website here: https://theanimalpad.org/adoption-application/.   ##1622634##

Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.Gorgeous white female sharpei mix puppy.Meet Bianca, a gorgeous, furry white female pup who was rescued along with her littermates after being found in the desert with their mama in La Paz, BCS, Mexico. Bianca is very outgoing and friendly, always one of the first of her littermates to readily approach humans for attention. She loves to play with her siblings and can be a little mouthy, but as soon as you pick her up she just melts in your arms. She was rescued when she was just a few weeks old, and grew up in a foster home with good vet care, food, and lots of love and attention. Her mama is a small/medium sized  beagle/terrier mix around 30 lbs, and we think there is some Shar Pei in this litter from the dad's side. Bianca is sterilized, vaccinated and ready to find her forever family! Meet Bianca in person!

Hi, this is Sebastian he is a full breed boxer and he is 2 years old. He’s very social and loves attention and hugs. He has grown up around his 2 other brothers from same litter but unfortunately due to moving I cannot keep him. He’s very friendly and loves to run and play catch. He loves making friends at the dog park. He has a great personality and we are so sad to have to see him go. He need’s special attention to his diet because he’s allergic to chicken and eats a salmon & rice blend dog food. Also he has sensitive skin due to these food allergies. He’s the smallest out of all his brothers I’d say he weighs low 60’s lbs! He is microchipped and he is fixed. With up to date shots!

Story
We've owned Jax since he was a small puppy (Fall of '22), and bought him from family friends who had bought his sister. He is a fun and playful dog who loves to run and play, but also loves to cuddle and relax :) He is a good guard dog and loves to be "heard", which means he likes to bark. He has a bark collar that you can have that helps curb that. We have three children and he is great with kids and is very protective of his "family". We are also re-homing his "brother", Moose, who is an almost 3yr old Pitsky; and they get along splendidly. We would love both dogs to go to the same family, but understand if thats not feasible. The reason we're rehoming is because having 2 medium/large dogs need a larger yard where they can run, dig, and play; and our busy schedules with work, school, sports, etc has increased this year to the point where they need more focus and attention which we can't provide them anymore. We want them to go to a loving family with a large yard for them to run :)
