Scruff

Age: 21 months oldSex: MaleBreed: Caucasian Shepherd crossAdoption fee: £200.00

Scruff is a very sweet boy who came to the centre via an inspector after his previous owner sadly became ill and passed away. Unfortunately due to the illness Scruff was not socialised within the big wide world and has been left quite nervous when encountering new situations and people for the first time. It does not take him long to build up a bond with you though and once you have gained his trust he is the sweetest and most loyal boy you could ask for. He loves to do zoomies and will play with you for as long as he can. 

Adopters will just need to help him along the way and help him overcome his insecurities, keeping him away from busy places until he has settled and gained his confidence. Once he has settled, his true character shines and he is the happiest, playful and cheeky boy who can bring a smile to anyone. He loves to run around with you so a secure garden with a 6 foot fence is a must for Scruff, he will not be suitable for adopters who do not have their own garden.

Scruff will make the most wonderful addition to the family, he will be very loyal and will be your faithful best friend. He just needs a little help along the way. Potential adopters will need to do multiple meet and greets so they can build up a bond with each other before taking him home. Scruff will need an adult only home where he is the only pet.

DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF APPLICATIONS WE ARE RECEIVING IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD BACK FROM FROM US WITHIN 2 WEEKS IT MEANS YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL THIS TIME FOR THIS DOG. SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS WILL BE INVITED TO THE CENTRE TO MEET HIM.
