Chris and Dogs

Christina Ranaldi ⋅ Owner

Hello, My name is Christina,

I am the owner of The Scruffy Puppy.

I live in Hazlet, NJ.

I have loved animals all my life and have devoted many years to caring for pets from horses to hamsters.

I have experience with many dog breeds from tiny fluff balls to larger “bully breeds.” I love them all.

I’ve worked as a groomer for many years and gained invaluable experience dealing with animals of all kinds. In my early years I had a horse, and worked on various horse farms. I currently have a 2 pups whom I love dearly. I love being around animals because they make me happy.

I have a wonderful staff of dedicated, pet loving professionals! We are fully insured and want to provide professional yet personal care for your pets. Let us help you give them the care and attention they need when you can’t be there.

If you’re looking for someone to look in on your pets while you’re away, I’d be happy to help.

I have always had a dog(s) in my home, they complete the family!

I am often seen walking with my Spencer.

I like walking dogs for the exercise it gives us both.

If your pup needs some TLC, a potty break or a walk, ask for me, Nancy!

I have always been passionate about animals.

From growing up on a farm and caring for abandoned.

kittens to enjoying my two dogs and two cats now.

I have always wanted to be around animals.

Any day spent caring for a new animal friend is an excellent day.
