Scruffy and his fear of the dark

By Nicholas Li

Out for a casual post-rain stroll, Scruffy is the unassuming type. Just like any dog he seems to be enjoying what is likely the highlight of his day.

But this every day canine has a very unusual fear.

“Scruffy was chased by two black dogs when he was little, and ever since then he runs away from anything black,” said Scruffy’s owner Zamal.

Ironically, as Scruffy has aged he has gradually turned white after being a black puppy. The three-year-old seemingly has morphed away from his fears.

“He’s not racist!” jokingly laughs Zamal.

When not phased by a dark object, Scruffy maintains a friendly and timid personality. Scruffy also does not shed hair – an added bonus.

This chameleon canine enjoys an easy life in Docklands.  Zamal, a local worker at Crown, would like to see more off leash areas.

“There are more dogs than children in this area so we need a park of our own,” she said.

Despite a desire for more dog-related facilities, she contends that Docklands is a very dog-friendly area.
