McGruff’s Story


McGruff (Sgt. McGruff) was adopted via BCCA rescue in 2010 as a young dog through Barbara Marshall in Bedford, MA.

There was a large learning curve in adopting a 9 month old puppy off the suburban streets outside of Boston, for both McGruff and Mary Ann, his new owner. Gruffy has since calmed down a bit, and loves to walk on the beach in Westport, CT, go for long car rides to Washington, DC, or share his toys and treats with his three neighbor pals: Mocha, Oliver and Csopi.

Recently, McGruff was featured in an Home Made Dog Food video.

Mary Ann says, “I continue to make the dog food recipe and add it as an appreciated supplement to his regular meals.”
