Recycling Dog Collects Litter

Scruff, otherwise known as the “eco dog”, has gotten into the habit of picking up plastic bottles on the ground while on his daily walks around the neighborhood. The 13-year-old border collie has retrieved over 1,000 bottles this year and has been a major help in keeping the streets clean. Scruff’s owners, David and Yvonne, claim that Scruff has always loved retrieving objects and took an interest in plastic bottles as a puppy. The couple posts about the pup’s findings using the hashtag #scruffsbottlepatrol, which has gained a following on social media. Keep up the good work, Scruff!
