Hello, thank you for visiting and having an interest in me becoming part of your family. My name is Mr.Scruffy my foster mom calls me Scruffaluffagus and Scruffs. I am a little tike and my foster mom says I can still be very timid but I am starting to come out of my shell and have started to come to her for love and ear scratches. I get along with my foster sister Meggie and my Foster feline Siblings. I like to take walks following my mom around the yard and have been prancing around with a skip in my step, but am still kinda scared to be picked up but once you do I am comfortable being held. I am doing good with potty training, I do have accidents in the house but mom uses puppy pads for me, I am still kinda scared to go out in the yard by myself because of my foster brother he is kinda a bully. I like to sleep in and I sleep above mom's head sometimes but would be good in a crate with my special pillow. I am mostly crate trained and like to take naps in it during the day. Mom says I am the cutest Boy EVER but I need some patience getting to know my new surroundings. I do have some issues with my teeth and my rear right knee but it doesn't slow me down I just need to be careful jumping up and my adult teeth are coming in great. I am trying to learn how to get up the puppy stairs onto mom's bed, I have gotten down them easy peezy! I would be best suitable with a female dog sister as I play with my 8-month-old foster sister but I'm not a fan of male dogs mostly they don't like me, I don't get it what's not to love! A home with a couple or a single mom or dad I think would be suited for me I seemed to bond only with one human but as the months go by and I get out of my shell mom thinks I would be a good family pup! I am starting to get my swagger on :D Again thank you for checking out my profile page I hope I can find a furrever home soon and hope it is you!


Please contact for more information about this dog. You can apply online by clicking on Application .

ADOPTION FEE:  The adoption fee includes vaccinations, bordetella, deworming, rabies, Microchip including a lifetime registration and spay/neuter.  

PUPPIES   Texas State law requires that we sterilize any animal adopted through this agency.     This will normally occur between 5 and 6 months at one of our approved veterinarians at the expense of the rescue.

Children under 8 years old  often are not a good match for our puppies and dogs.   In order to protect both, your child and our rescued dogs/puppies from harm, we seldom if ever adopt to families with young children.

Approval:  You will be notified via email once your application is approved.  Once notified, we will schedule a meet and greet at one of our approved locations.   Thank you for considering a rescue!

The adoption fee includes vaccinations, Bordetella, de-worming, rabies, spay/neuter and microchip. There is a an additional $12.99 fee for Home Again for a lifetime registration of the microchip.

Puppies cannot be adopted outside of the Houston area until they are spay/neutered after they are 4 months old.

It is against the law in the State of Texas for a rescue not to be sterilized so we have to make sure it gets completed and that we have record of it.

NOTE: In our bios, we provide information based on our volunteer's experience with a particular dog; such as temperament, training, and ability to get along with others.

AARF is a 501(c)3 Non Profit, all breed, no kill organization. Our group is always in need of donations in order to continue to give the needed medical care to our rescues. Adoption fees do not begin to cover all of the medical costs. Any donation , no matter how small is a big help and is greatly appreciated. Please help us to continue to help them. Thank you.
