Poor Scruffy was covered in grime when he was handed in to a sanctuary.
He had been found on a garbage truck by the driver, who thankfully spotted him before he got hurt in the vehicle.
Scruffy was given a good clean to properly reveal his adorable black and white fur.
A spokesman for the sanctuary said: ‘Luckily the driver spotted his little stowaway and brought him to us.’
‘And you can see why we gave him the name Scruffy.’
The sanctuary rep said Scruffy has been happily adopted , and added: ‘Thank you so much to Lisa and family for turning this little scruff into a pampered prince.’
Little Scruffy has earned himself plenty of fans on social media, with one person commenting:
‘What a darling’, while another praised his ‘fabulous whiskers’.
‘He’s adorable, thank you kind people for adopting him,’ someone else wrote.
