TRUFFLE DOG OF THE WEEK:
This week we look at one of the more experienced truffle dogs we have at our farm, with over half a decade spent hunting and thousands of kilos of truffles found, we would love to introduce the eternally adorable Scrappy!
Name – Scrappy
Age – 9
Gender – Female
Breed - Black Labrador
Truffle Seasons Hunted – 6
Estimated Truffle Hunted Over Career – 3+ tonnes
Favourite Treat – Anything her hunting partner, Katie, is eating.
Most Annoying Habit - Scrappy has ticklish feet! So getting her boots on can be challenging, certain styles are easier!
Scrappy is extremely thorough and conscientious, sometimes it seems like she's thoughtfully pre-grading truffle from above ground before she decides which one is best to show Katie. Unfortunately, her diligence can cause a few short delays when there's 100's to find every day. We love her all the same!
