This place lies along the bank of the Miag-ao River facing Indag-an on the other side. It got its name from a brook. The other version is that Barangay Dawog got its name from a big snake lying in a brook in a "dawog" position.
During the Japanese occupation, seven innocent civilians were killed by their enemies. While penetrating this place, they were ambushed by guerilla soldiers led by Lt.
