noun. A pooch (or poochly person) that specializes in being blamed and shaved.

Real citation: “Suddenly Mr Ingram seemed to realise that he was being set up as the fall-guy, the scapepoodle. ‘I’m the first minister who’s perhaps come to the dispatch box,’ he said slowly, as the truth dawned on him, “and therefore the one who’s being asked all these questions.” Forget the heroics, it was time to take cover.”

Made-up citation: “You can’t make me a scapepoodle. I’m not that well-groomed. I’m a scapehuahua at best.”
