The element that stands out strongest is Meg's fingers, which I find distracting. It would be nice to see Meg's face, as her name is in the title, so I think she should have as much exposure as Scrappy. Another distracting element that stands out is Meg's nose, in sharpeer focus than her cheek, and it's placed in a position of prominence in the fame.

Scrappy's head stands out nicely against the blurred should, but I think some color contrast correction are necessary to make Scrappy's fur stand out.

The amount of unfocussed, blank wall on the left gives this an unbalanced feel, for me. Perhaps crop this to a portrait layout by editing out all but a sliver of that wall?

I'm sorry to be blunt, but this basically has the feel of a hastily composed snapshot.

You could have cropped away most of the left side. The right shoulder is out of focus, but it's too important to be shallow. Showing the kid's (?) eyes would have brought in a lot more emotion.

Lighting seems a bit dull. Good composition on this cute portrait.
