Arrival Story:
I was in school to become a registered veterinary technician. At school, we pull animals from a local shelter to learn on - we get them healthy and ready for adoption - and then either adopt them out to staff/students or send them back to the shelter. My first week at school, I met Scruffy - or dog #353, as he was known then. I fell in love with him, but more importantly, he fell in love with me. We were very sure we didn't want another dog for so many reasons, but mostly because a previous rescue turned out horribly and we were scared. But he wormed his way into our hearts and home and we couldn't say no.

Scruffy is the happiest dog I've ever known (and I've known a lot of dogs!). All you have to do is look at him and he's over the moon with happiness. When he wags his tail, he wags his whole body. Everything makes him excited, sending him bouncing into the air, but he's also full of sweetness and love. I don't know his past story before us, and I don't know how anyone in his life before could ever let him end up in a shelter, but now I know he'll never go back.
