Adorable Mr Scruffy is a high energy terrier mix that is seeking the right home to help him succeed in life. Scruffy has been passed around a lot of homes before he came into us, he finds a lot about the world overwhelming, especially when it comes to other dogs. He is quick to become defensive around other dogs, however, if allowed off lead with steady, playful dogs he provides lovely social skills and loves playing. For this reason, he is looking for a rather special home with people who have lots of experience taking on dogs with issues and who are prepared to continue the behavioural work we have been doing here at Battersea.

He will need a rural home, where he has lots of space to work off all that energy and where he won't need to bump into other dogs too often. When it comes to his family, he is quick to develop a very strong and loyal bond, so he is sure to make a loving companion and lifelong friend. Mr Scruffy may be a project but he will be well worth it for a family who have the time and space to offer him a new start.
