UPDATE: ‘Dickens’ the Dog has been Adopted, and is now Known as ‘Scruffy’!

UPDATE 9/6/12: Remember ‘Dickens,’ the cute dog found roaming around Des Moines’ North Hill with no ID? (we first posted bout him on Aug. 21)

Well we’ve got good news – Des Moines Master Animal Control Officer Jan Magnuson says he’s been adopted!

“‘Dickens’ is now known as “Scruffy” and is in his new home with his new family in Des Moines!” Jan told us. “He is happy and healthy and is such a nice, friendly guy. I am assisting his new family with basic obedience/good manners training, so “Scruffy” is learning how to heel and sit stay and be a good boy.”

Jan adds:

“Thanks to everyone who helped spread the word about him so he could find his ‘forever’ home!”
