Please note: Scruffy will be rehomed with another dog for company or will at least have someone around for most of the day.

Scruffy loves: Life, People, Kids, Dogs (all kinds and sizes), Food, Car trips, Playing in water. He is enthusiastic, high energy and happy.

With people, Scruffy can be a little demanding if he feels he is not getting enough attention. With dogs, he plays enthusiastically, however, with good doggie manners, he graciously moves on, if another dog does not want to play. He is happy to find another friend or occupy himself.

Unfortunately for Scruffy, no one remembered he needed an education, therefore, Scruffy is a work in progress!

At present Scruffy will sit and wait patiently whilst you prepare his meals and is quickly learning to wait for his bowl to be placed in front of him. He will sit and wait for you to open a gate or door. He is well progressed with lead and toilet training and is quickly learning the command to go to his bed. Due to his love of life and interest in all things, his recall still requires lots of reinforcement.

The ideal home for Scruffy will be a high energy family who will include him in their day to day activities. Older kids would be a bonus and another doggie friend, a must. An adoptive family will have the time and energy to commit to his on-going training.

Scruffy has an easy care coat, however, no matter what you do with him, he always looks like he is having a bad hair day, which is rather endearing.

Scruffy is waiting to: Live, Love and Learn with his forever family. Perhaps that is you.
