Adoptable Pet of the Week: Casper

Casper is a sweet and friendly small neutered male dog, about 5 years old and 18 lbs. His breed mix might be wire-haired dachshund, miniature schnauzer, or terrier; it’s really hard to know, and the most important thing about Casper anyway is what a great dog he is. Casper is friendly with people and dogs, walks nicely on leash, takes treats gently and is content to sit on a lap or by your side. He is a dog with many expressions but one thing is certain, he deserves to have a life- long loving home. He is looking for a home with a kind and loving person or family, a soft warm bed, some toys to play with, and having another dog would be nice, too. He is an all -around easy, sweet guy waiting for the right person or family to adopt him.

K-9 PALS is assisting in promoting Casper for adoption. For inquiries about adopting Casper, please call 805-681-4332 at Santa Barbara County Animal Services Shelter, 5473 Overpass Rd., Santa Barbara, CA; business hours are Mon-Fri 9 am – 4:45 pm, Sat 10 am – 4 pm.

K-9 PALS provides dog behavior training sessions at no cost for those who adopt a dog from any local shelter, rescue organization, or humane society.
