He's a blond puppy in a black and tan world! Scrap is an unusual coloured puppy who has been saved from drowning by Lionel, who trains working sheepdogs. Having had no mother to teach him about being a dog, Scrap learns some hard lessons from a wise old dog named Bill, and although some say sheep have no respect for a blond dog, Scrap proves he has 'the Eye' and loves being a working dog. But his youthful exuberance gets him in many scrapes!
