Meet Mr. Theodore Scruffy

Meet Mr. Theodore Scruffy! Mr. Scruffy (1 to 2-years-old/18-pounds) was seized by animal control, with a harness growing into his skin, but his skin is healing now. He is a sweet, friendly boy, with a mellow house presence. He loves to explore the backyard and sniff all the interesting outside smells, then come inside for cuddles. Mr. Scruffy loves to be around people and is friendly with strangers. He is curious, but not overly interested in cats, and is good with other dogs. He’s house-trained and would do well with some basic obedience training, to learn commands and tricks.

Update 4/25/19, Mr. Theodore Scruffles unfortunately tested positive for heartworm disease. He got this by being bitten by an infected mosquito. He is not contagious to other dogs (but all dogs should be on heartworm prevention monthly, year-round to prevent infection/reinfection). Underdog has started Mr. Theodore Scruffles on treatment for heartworm, and with proper after-care, he will fully recover. His adopter will simply need to bring Mr. Theodore Scruffles to scheduled treatment appointments and keep him CALM (with strict crate rest or supervised relaxation) post treatment injections (for 2-3 months). We provide adopters with instructions and will cover needed meds. Dogs who are treated for heartworm have a positive likelihood of recovery when post-treatment instructions and rest are followed.
