"SCRUFFY"
Schnauzer/Terrier mix, 11 years, Neutered Male
Mass Humane Society - Partnership & Courtesy Post for PAWS New England
Scruffy is a neutered 11 years young Schnauzer - Terrier Mix, 19 pounds, UTD on all shots, Heart Worm negative and on prevention and is microchipped.

Scruffy (with Abagail) was surrendered by his owner in March of 2015 to a dog sanctuary in Tennessee. The owner was moving and could not take the dogs with him. What a tragedy for Scruffy and Abby, who found themselves displaced out of their forever home as seniors! Very quickly, the sanctuary staff realized that the boarding situation was too overwhelming for these pups, and they were moved to a foster home in TN, where they spent several months before Paws New England was informed of their plight and moved them North. They arrived in New England on January 30 to a new foster home.

Scruffy defies his age! While he is a senior and is very calm and laid-back for the most part, he does show some initial excitement when people visit, and he makes it a point to seek out attention from people. He loves to be walked daily and is very good on leash, but also loves an opportunity to occasionally run around in a fenced yard and protect his territory from squirrels.

Scruffy is very good with other dogs (after the initial introductions), no cats or kids. He is getting along fine with the 6 other dogs he is currently living with. Scruffy will lick and groom other k9 members of the household, but he probably would be happiest as an only dog or being adopted with Abby, his life-long companion. Sometimes, he can be grumpy over food or chew toys and is not eager to share with the other k9 members. Scruffy has decided that his bed is only for him if he’s there first, but he’ll happily join another dog that’s already on a bed.

This sweet senior deserves nothing less than a fantastic home and we’re determined to find that for him!!
