- Doomis, a 75 lb Shepherd/Hound/Labrador mix, is the first Detector Dog for Santa Barbara County. He was rescued from an animal shelter in Barrow County, Georgia in December 2014 prior to entering the USDA Detector Dog Training Program. Doomis is a happy dog with a strong work ethic and he loves a good belly rub almost as much as he loves checking unmarked packages for agricultural products


Agriculture detection dogs detect fruits, vegetables and other prohibited items that may carry pests or plant diseases that could possibly harm crops in California.
