We received a Scruff-a-Luvs Real Rescue for free from Moose toys as part of a Twitter Party that I am co-host for on Friday November 8, 2019 at 11am. Opinions are our own.
Andrew really wants a dog. While he loves his cat I know that deep down he is such a dog person. He’s loveable and dependable and fun. He’s got such a heart overflowing with love and so I was excited to find out that the Scruff-A-Luvs Real Rescue that we received was a puppy.
I did not know what it would be out of the box. You see, when you get one of these Scruff-a-Luvs Real Rescue pets they are all balled up and have matted fur. Very much like real life rescue animals when they are found abandoned and mistreated. I know that we’ve all seen the videos of animals that are found all matted and near starvation. Well, that is a sad thing but Moose Toys has taken that and made it into a whole uplifting toy experience for kids. When they receive their Scruff-a-Luvs Real Rescue pet in a pet carrier they get this shivering and scared little matted ball of fur. You cannot tell if it is a cat or a dog at this point. I did say shivering because this is a toy that is electronic but it is one that can go into water. It is the first stuffed animal that is electronic that can be taken into the bath.
So we get the toy and it is all matted so I take it and fill the sink with warm water and put the pet into it. It continues to shiver but we work out all the mats and then we dry it off. I had to put it into the dryer on a lower setting (after I took out the electronics piece, it is removable) and then when that was done we combed out the fur of the puppy and gave it a collar and tag, Andrew named him Jeff. He’s obsessed with that name.
The neat thing about this toy is that Moose Toys gives back with regards to this toy. For every Scruff-a-Luvs Real Rescue adopted, the company will donate part of the proceeds to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) to help real animals find their “furever” homes. That is a really neat thing for them to do.
