partial History from a Veteran
Jim Westlake was a Sentry Dog Handler at George AFB, 831st APS circa 1960 to 1963.  
The first two dog handlers were Skipper and Flanigan; Bill King was the fifth handler to George.
Our first Dog Kennel office was a tent - Squadron had a total of 18 dogs.
Original patch (similar design to above patch) was embroidered on blue Twill circa August 1960, designer unknown.
We received approval to wear the patch on our 1505's above the right pocket for a demonstration for the Freshman class of the Air Force Academy.
(I have: added to/deleted/changed/etc. some of Jim's messages)

 3Ē.  It was worn above the right fatigue shirt pocket.  The SAC patch was worn on the right pocket.

I donít know when the patch was first used, I would say, from seeing the ones worn by guys who had been at Homestead longer than me, it was around since 1961.  I left there in Sept. 1965, so I donít have any info about how long it continued to be used.
