Meet Scrappy

Scrappy, Wirehaired Terrier, Tan, Male neutered, 12 years old Sophie, Chihuahua mix, Brown, Female spayed, 9 years old Scrappy and Sophie are a sweet and calm bonded pair.  They love to get lots of attention and pets, and enjoy always being by your side.  They are very gentle and easy to walk on a leash, and would make nice companions for a calm and quieter home.  They would do best with children over the age of 10 years old, as younger children may be too much for them.    **This dog is at the Ocean County Animal Facility North located at 615 Fremont Ave, Jackson NJ (off of Hope Chapel Rd).  All dogs are spayed/neutered, micro-chipped, and have age appropriate shots.** To adopt our dogs you must come to the facility with your entire family, including dogs, to meet with our staff and the dog you are interested in. We are open to the public seven days a week between the hours of 1pm and 4pm.   Please call our facility at 732-657-8086 for more information about any of our pets!
