Petunia’s Baby – Scruffy

Petunia was rescued from a hoarding situation and delivered 6 beautiful puppies less than 36 hours after coming into KGARL. The puppies have been raised in a loving foster home and are ready to find their forever home. There are no children in the foster home. There is a cat that’s not a fan of dogs so we don’t know how the puppies will be with cats.

Introducing Scruffy!!!

Scruffy’s foster mom says he’s crazy, but in a good way! Don’t plan to hold and snuggle him until he’s older because right now he’s wide open and very active. He loves playing with toys and doesn’t want to sit still!  He’s the smallest puppy in a litter of 6 but don’t let his size fool you – he’s a big dog in a small dog body. Scruffy keeps his foster family laughing – he’s very inquisitive and will sit and stare at his foster mom and dad.

He needs a family committed to training a puppy and dealing with puppy shenanigans (digging, chewing, potty training, etc. )! Think of him as a tiny toddler with fur!

Scruffy’s perfect home would have another dog for him to play with, a fenced yard, and no kids under 8 years old.  If you are ready for a 15-20 year commitment, please visit our website to read our adoption requirements, and submit an application if interested in meeting Scruffy.

Adoption process

Submitting an application does not guarantee a specific dog or cat.  We strive to match the personality and needs of our foster dogs and cats to a family who will best fulfill those needs.  If a family is not approved for a particular pet, it does not mean they will not be a good pet owner, it just means that their needs and the needs of the particular pet don’t match. We do not adopt on a “first come, first serve” basis. 

Once your application is received, the application process begins.  We will review your application, check your references, check with your vet (if there are other animals in the household), speak to a landlord (if you rent), and arrange for a home visit. 

Once your application is pre-approved (meaning, we don't see any red flags based on our preliminary review of your application), the applicant may be invited to meet their potential family member at a location convenient to the foster family (usually at the King George Petco).  Adoptions will NOT take place at the meet & greet, this is just a chance for us to get to know you and for you to spend time with our animals. After the meet and greet, we will ask that you spend some time thinking over your decision and we will do the same.

After the application review process is complete (meet & greet with animal, home visit, reference/vet checks, background check, etc.), if all is acceptable to both adopter and KGARL and we all agree to move forward, we will schedule a day/time to finalize the adoption. The adopter will be asked to sign the final paperwork and we will collect the adoption fee (cash, check, or paypal are all acceptable).  At this time, you can either pick up your pet, or schedule a time to do so. Adopters will be required to schedule an appointment with their veterinarian of choice within 15 days of taking your new pet home. 

Please note that we do not do same day adoptions. If you are applying for a popular animal (such as puppies, small dogs, or special breeds), it can take several days for our volunteers to reach a decision that is best for the animal. We understand that it's difficult to wait, but please don't email us multiple times a day to check on the status of your application. We are a very small group and the same people that are reviewing your application are also replying to hundreds of emails and Facebook messages. We are all volunteers and have full time jobs outside of KGARL, so any time spent replying to emails/messages is time we are not reviewing your application.

  • Lifetime of free advice from KGARL!
  • Spayed or Neutered Pet
