Scabigail van Buren Brown
Celebrity chef Alton Brown’s first rescue dog is a Boston Terrier nicknamed “Scabigail” with her real name being Abigail van Buren Brown, who he adopted in May 2018. Scabigail’s funny nickname came from her sad start in life. The Atlanta Humane Society rescued a pack of 77 dogs living in inhumane conditions. Scabigail was found with them, completely covered in itchy mange, red inflamed skin, and scabs all over her face and neck. Brown and his wife Elizabeth follow many rescue organizations and spotted poor Scabigail. They quickly adopted and started her “Scabs to riches” story.
