Sammy, a 4-year old, 50-pound neutered male is quite handsome, nicely socialized, friendly, and loves to run and play. Sammy has never met any person that he didn’t like and knows about all the good behaviors required of living in a home. He excelled at a recent Open Paw training class sponsored by K-9 PALS as he is very treat-motivated and has a very good “sit” and “stay.” He is also quite good at catching a ball tossed to him.


If Sammy sounds like the perfect dog for you, stop by the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Road, Goleta, and complete a no-obligation adoption application and get it approved. We’ll then set up a time to meet Sammy. Read more about Sammy and view photos at

Do you love dogs, but can’t have a pet? Volunteer at the shelter or for K-9 PALS or make a donation to K-9 PALS to help pay for the medical expenses and prescription foods for the homeless dogs of Santa Barbara County.
