Christina Ranaldi


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. In my early years, I had a horse and worked on various horse farms. I currently have 1 pup Cupcake, 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, potty breaks, or a walk, ask for me, Nancy.

This is my rescue pup, Gracie. What can I say?

“All animals are great,” I love them.

I love the experience with all the guys and girls I take care of through The Scruffy Puppy.

Hi, I’m Susie, a lifelong lover of all living things. I’ve owned and cared for animals of all species & sizes. My current pets are two rescue dogs from Puerto Rico, a cockatiel, a gecko & poison dart frogs.

Pets are part of the family, and your babies will be cared for and loved as if they were my own.

Hi my name is Suzanne. I am an avid animal lover. I have been lucky to have had a dog in my family for most of my life and now i'm the proud momma of a rescue cat for the last 12 years. I love spending time with animals. I have been a dog walker/boarder for the past 7 years. Prior to that I ran an aftercare program in an elementary school becoming a second mom to many. I am very reliable and trustworthy. I will reinforce any specific commands you may use with your dog (stop and heeling at each corner...) A happy and safe pup is my objective.
