Adoptable Pet of the Week

Squirt is a 4-month-old neutered male Chihuahua mix who only weighs seven pounds! He is a calm and confident dog who would do well in a household with other dogs or cats. He is an alpha dog and always thinks he’s in charge. He would do best with kids over 12 years old. Even though he struts his stuff, he’s a little sweetheart and loves to be carried around.


If Squirt sounds like the perfect dog for you, stop by the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter, 5473 Overpass Road in Goleta and complete a no-obligation adoption application.
