12-5 Scruffy Dogs

Bennie - They say he's an Airedale/wirehaired terrier mix...I can sure see the Airedale, and the coloring looks a lot like a German Wirehaired Pointer or a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon might be in there somewhere. What a cutie!

My Little Pony - Funny name, but what great eyebrows!

Shaggy - What a sweet dog...

We Adopted a Scruffy Dog...

If you want to read a scruffy dog adoption story, check my Scruffy Dogs blog for how we adopted Kirby...

And if you are interested in getting an extremely sweet, scruffy puppy, Kirby has four other litter-mates who are every bit as sweet and adorable as he is, and he has a mom and grandma who are also up for adoption.

Kirby's Family (he was formerly known as Milo):

Mabel and Marie: We almost adopted Mabel. For us, it was between her and Kirby...and Kirby came out ahead because he took a shine to us right away. If we had more room, I'd go adopt Mabel tomorrow.

Marie was very sweet also, a little shorter and soooo cute!

UPDATE: Both Mabel (left) and Marie (right) have been adopted!

Morgan and Morris: These are the other two males in Kirby's family. Morgan is scruffy, with adorable reddish, wiry hair. Morris is smooth-coated and looks very much like a dachsund, but he gets a spot on Adopt a Scruffy Dog by association. Morgan is very friendly. Morris is very shy, but sweet.

UPDATE: Both Morgan (left) and Morris (right) have been adopted!

And last, but not least, is Meg, the mother of these sweet puppies! We met the grandmother, but not the mother. She looks similar and is a wonderful dog. We wanted to bring her home too, of course...

UPDATE: Meg has been rescued by Smiley Dog Rescue. A bunch of happy endings for this little family!

Sandee - They say everyone has a double somewhere...When we were in France recently we met a sweet, scruffy girl named Patsi who could be Sandee's twin!

Bringing a Scruffy Dog to a Home Near You

While I enjoy writing my non-commercial Scruffy Dogs blog, I wanted to create a place where I can accomplish two things:

1) provide links to scruffy dogs who are available for adoption, in hopes that some of the pups who may be passed over for those of the sleeker or fluffier variety, can find happy homes, and

2) if this blog makes any money through sponsorships, ALL of it will be donated to animal shelters.

For those of us who seek the companionship of scruffy ones, I want this to be a great place to start.
