Dogs from DAWG

  • About DAWG

    DAWG provides a safe and loving environment for dogs awaiting permanent adoption, and promotes their adoption through outreach programs in the Santa Barbara community.

    Most of the dogs in our care come from Santa Barbara county shelters. Our primary goal is to reduce the rate of euthanasia in the county shelters by providing the medical care and training many dogs need for a second chance at life.

    Since DAWG’s inception in 1991, we have worked hard to bring out the best in our dogs, improving their quality of life during their stay at the shelter, and placing healthy, well-behaved dogs back into the community.

     


    Dog of the Week

     

    Hi future best friend, my name is Panda. I’m a three year old Lab/Pit mix with an adventurous side. I love anything that involves the outdoors- hiking, camping, running on the beach, bike rides you name it and I’ll be there by your side! After all that exercise you can find me watching some late-night Animal Planet, I’ll be sure to save room on the couch for you. I’m a great listener and learn quickly! Need a buddy who’s already crate trained and potty trained? Say no more, I’m your lady. I'm in search of a dog experienced owner who knows to give me structure, respect, and boundaries. I’d really love it if you came and met me at DAWG. Trust me, I’m a pretty lovable gal! For more info about me please call Dog Adoption & Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561 or e-mail us at adopt@sbdawg.org

    Freckles is a 7 year old mix with a lot of Aussie/Cattle Dog in him judging by his looks. Due to his mix of herding/working breeds, Freckles still has medium to high energy and loves to go out on adventures. He is best suited for a family or individual who will give him guidance in the home, but will also allow him to exert his energy outside either through running, beach trips, hiking, or playing fetch! Freckles has shown disdain with cats and cannot go to a home that has cats, whether indoor or outdoor. He will be best suited in a home without young kids and without small dogs. We have introduced him to big dogs, and he has done quite well. This dog needs a lot of socialization, as his puppyhood was a not a great one. Please call Dog Adoption & Welfare Group at (805) 681-0561 or e-mail us at adopt@sbdawg.org to learn more on how you can give Freckles the home he deserves.

    All DAWG dogs are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped and are given flea & tick protection monthly. They are eligible for consultation with a trainer as needed.
