A starving stray dog, they named him 'Scraps'. You can feed him anything. Low maintenance.
— In-game biography

Scraps is an animal resident of Portia with whom the player can develop a friendship. He is a stray dog who isn't present at the start of My Time at Portia because he has run away. "Missing" posters with his picture can be found hanging on walls around town.


Talking to Polly while close to the missing dog poster at the lower city gates will initiate the A New Friend mission. After completion, Scraps will wander around town.

Once Familiar status (2 stars) with him has been reached, a new mission, Feeling Safe, will trigger that enables the player to adopt him by crafting a Bell Collar with Carol's help and gifting it to him. There is no limit on how many pets the player can have.


Personal LifeEdit

Scraps is a friendly, good-tempered dog, but has a mischievous side that shows on rare occasions. He dislikes few things but adores food, and enjoys meat-centric dishes from both land and sea as well as Apples and Aroma Apples.

He prefers to walk rather than run, and will walk long distances daily for the sake of finding potential food. He has been known to leave town in search of food.

Physical AppearanceEdit

Scraps is a medium dog with orange fur, wide, alert eyes, perky ears, a fluffy tail, and short legs. His belly, feet, and muzzle are white, and there is a diamond-shaped patch of white fur on his forehead. He has a tendency to keep his tongue out.

It is currently unknown if he is based on a specific breed of dog. verify ]

Related CharactersEdit

Scraps is not inherently related to any characters due to being a stray dog, and as such, has no relationship network. However, given what some townspeople say about him, he is definitely closer to those that are inclined to give him food (namely Polly, Django, and Martha verify ]).
