If you buy Scruffy, he will no longer appear in the game.
|Episode 2: The Crash|
|He... do you want this dog, Scruffy, here?
I can't afford to take care of him anymore, but he's a great pet!
Scruffy will fetch extra ammo and medical supplies for you, if you ask him to.
Owning him also increases your maximum energy by 3, and your maximum health by 5 points!
If you have 60 skulls to spare, then he's all yours.
