scruffy from Basildon

We first saw scruffy our little bedlington terrier in may 2015 and fell in love with him straightaway, we had recently lost our other dog daisy, a springer spaniel in really sad circumstances and our other dog smudge was missing her terribly. Scruffy had not had the best of starts and we believe he was kept outside in a shed for most of his 6yrs! He now sleeps on the sofa or bed, and has settled in so well with our other dog who has calmed down a lot, scruffy is a joy to have around, gets loads of walks and goes away with us in our campervan, which both dogs love. We have had to reteach him certain things, he had to learn to walk upstairs, was very timid, now his tail wags constantly, we have the odd accident indoors but he has filled a huge gap in our lives and is such a lovely dog we still miss our other dog very much but im sure she would approve of scruffy, we feel proud we got to give him a home.
