Scruffy Dogs: Holiday 2010
After writing my ScruffyDog blog entry about the Portuguese Podengo -- a scruffy dog breed that is taking the US by storm, I realized that it is time to resurrect the Adopt a Scruffy Dog blog to find homes for other scruffy canines -- purebreds and mixes -- that are every bit as cute and a whole lot less complicated to adopt than a rare European breed. So here we go... If you are looking for an adorable, scruffy dog to join your family this holiday season, have a look!
Belle is described as a German Wirehaired Pointer...but her longer coat suggests she may be a mix (Wirehaired Pointing Griffon perhaps?) or possibly even a Labradoodle. In any case, she is adorably Baxter-esque, don't you think?
Chi Chi is a little scruffy dog...rescued from Puerto Rico. What a little sweetie!
Speaking of Podengos, Sophie here looks an awful lot like one!
I'm a dog lover. Cats are great. Birds are great. Dogs are supreme. This blog started with one dog in particular: Baxter, a Wirehaired Pointing Griffon who was the sweetest dog I've ever known. Then came Kirby, a scruffy little shelter dog of diverse lineage (he's quite the charmer). Sadly, we lost Baxter in April 2012. Now Remy, a smart, highly entertaining Wirehaired Pointing Griffon puppy has joined our family and is keeping us all on our toes. While I like most canines I meet, the scruffy dogs tug at my heartstrings the most. Eyebrows and moustaches. Curious sidenote: my husband looks a LOT like my dogs. Coincidence? I don't think so. Ultimately this is a good thing. I'm surrounded by sweet, scruffy beings and I love it. When I'm not playing with one of my scruffy boys or blogging as Scruffy Dog, I'm usually working as Jennifer Allen Newton, a freelance writer and consultant, reading, working on my first novel, making music or coming up with another reason not to clean house or cook dinner.
