Dog Days at Calle Real

Canines are now available at the Calle Real shopping area. Give a Dog a Home ReTail Adoption Center (formerly in La Cumbre) is now at an empty storefront next to Blenders on the Goleta shopping avenue. The day I walked by, Alex was sitting calmly next to a Give a Dog volunteer on the sidewalk, ready for a cuddle. Alex is a luxurious brown with silky, soft fur and a lovely demeanor. The specifics of his past aren’t known, but he came to the shelter with cropped ears and small scars on his face. Alex is ready for a permanent home, as are the other cute four-leggeds who are there each weekend. Stop by and scratch some floppy ears every Sunday, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m, at 5737 Calle Real, Goleta.
