Adoptable Pet of the Week


Sandy is ready for his debut for the movie screen! He is our cream colored version of Dorothy’s Toto from the Wizard of Oz. He is a two-year-old neutered male Cairn terrier mix of 13 pounds. He is very timid, and will need a home that is loving, patient, and stern with him. His fear and need to protect his owner was the reason his previous home did not keep him forever. But his previous mother said he was affectionate and very loyal. He is smart, happy, curious, and calm—a great combination. Sandy is looking for his forever home or a foster home, who will teach him that he does not need to protect his person, but rather welcome everyone into his circle of friends.


All of the dogs have been spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, are current on their shots, and have flea/tick/mosquito protection. We ask for a minimum adoption donation of $250 for young dogs (under three years), $150 for adult dogs, and $125 for seniors (dogs 8 years old and over).

DAWG (Dog Adoption and Welfare Group) is a no-kill not-for-profit dog rescue/adoption organization. For more information on our available dogs, call (805) 681-0561, email, or come by Thursday-Monday, 12 p.m.-5 p.m., 5480 Overpass Rd. in Goleta. You can view more adoptable dogs at
