  • Labrador Retriever, Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler)
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Austin is a 3-4 month possible lab mix. He's a very social little dude who is happy and plays well with the other dogs. He is crated a night and settles nicely after a little bit of protesting. He had mange when he was found as a stray in MS, and his coat has grown in beautifully. He is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $475. Email melissa@caninecommit.org with any questions. Applications available on our website at www.caninecommit.org.Questions about this dog should be directed to melissa@caninecommit.org. Thank you!A bit more information that you might find helpful:YES, this dog is here in New Hampshire. Canine Commitment does not post any dogs as available until they are here, in NH, and available to meet before committing to adopt.Canine Commitment has two licensed shelter locations (at our private residences) in the state of NH, abiding by all state and federal import and quarantine laws. We are a 501c3 not-for-profit organization run by volunteers who just want to help save some lives.A NOTE ABOUT HOUSETRAINING: We can tell you about our experience with a dog in our homes and in the fosters' homes down south (prior to arrival in NH). Please keep in mind that we do this with a lot of pups -- dogs go directly outside when they come out of their crates and usually are not given free range in our homes without supervision. ANY dog may need time, patience, and consistency to learn your home, your routines, and your expectations of them. Be patient, buy a bottle of carpet cleaner just in case, and give this new relationship some time and TLC. Most pups have been in at least three locations prior to going to your home. They may be confused, unsure of themselves, and looking for cues ... and understanding. They are living, feeling beings who should not be expected to be perfect instantly. (Sometimes, they are. Bonus!)A NOTE ABOUT LEASH WALKING: In our homes, the pups are in fenced areas. In most cases, volunteers have walked the adult, larger dogs at some point and we have some information from them about the dog's behavior on leash. Most often, we do not. Our experience with them on leash is limited to transfers to/from the car, into/out of the vet's office, etc. Some dogs behave just the way they do in group settings when they are on leash. Other times, they do not. Do not ask too much of a new, adult dog in your home. Give them time to adjust before introducing them to other dogs. Introduce them slowly and with forethought (feel free to ask us for some resources -- we are happy to provide those!).More questions?

  • Mixed Breed, Labrador Retriever
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Orchid was found by our rescue partner living in an old barn with her puppies. She was rescued from there, along with her pups, and taken to the rescuer's home until ready to head north to NH. Orchid is one of those dogs that just crawls into your heart. She is hesitant at first and needs to make sure she is safe, but she is WONDERFUL. Sweet, sweet, sweet. Good with other dogs of all sizes, cats, and kids (also ducks and chickens, in case that is helpful info 🙂 ). Unassuming and so grateful for any love and attention that it just breaks your heart. She will need continued love and TLC to gain confidence and figure out the world can be a great place, but she has already shown she is worth the time and effort a hundred times over. She has lived her entire life with other dogs, and we believe she will do well in a home with another dog as a buddy. She is approximately 1 1/2 years old now, and weighs about 56 pounds. Her adoption fee is partially sponsored and is $250. She is up-to-date on vaccines, heartworm negative, and on heartworm and flea/tick preventatives, spayed and microchipped. Applications can be found on our website at www.caninecommit.org.Questions about this dog should be directed to ross@caninecommit.org.

  • Pit Bull Terrier

  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Prefers home without dogsPrefers home without cats
Look at that face! Sadie m'lady is an absolute sweetheart. She came to us locally after her owners moved out of their apartment and just left Sadie behind. A kind person was feeding Sadie once a day and letting her out briefly, but she needed a place to go and Canine Commitment stepped up to help. As you can see from the wise face, Sadie is no spring chicken -- she is about 10 years old. She is in good health, all vaccines are up to date, she is heartworm negative, and she still has plenty of spring in her step! We do not suspect that she does well with other dogs, and are looking for a home without other animals. What she lacks in love of her own kind, she makes up ten-fold in love of humans -- all sizes and shapes! She is also just about the best mannered car riding dog I have ever had in my car -- so polite and interested in what's going on outside the window. She sits calmly and doesn't jump around at all! (She loves riding to school with us in the morning.) We don't believe she has ever been crated, but given her space she is not destructive at all. She does prefer to have people with her, probably a side effect from being abandoned and alone for so long in the apartment, so we would love a home where someone works from home or is retired. She spent the night in my house on a sleepover and was perfectly behaved (and oh so happy to sleep with us on the bed!), giving us every faith that she is housetrained. She didn't touch a single toy or other thing in the house -- she just wanted to be next to us and snuggle.If you think you can give Sadie the end to her life that she deserves, please contact ross@caninecommit.org. Her adoption fee has been sponsored totally by folks who love her and just want to see her in a loving, permanent home.A bit more information that you might find helpful:YES, this dog is here in New Hampshire.

  • Boston Terrier, Dachshund
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Foster update on Yaz! 5/15/17 It's day 12 and here's what I know! - Yaz is awesome - he loves toys, food and praise, triple threat training wise - bossman bosses dogs his size and smaller and puppies of any size (I think, but we haven't met any mastiff puppies yet ??) - Yaz is easily redirected and really responds to leadership when offered, from myself or Norm or other solid dogs. - he fetches petty much naturally it seems which is pretty cool - not a yappy dog, will alert bark but chills out with direction - getting better about waiting to be invited up on your lap -not sure how he is with kids yet, haven't met any, my instict says older kids he'd be great with and younger ones might get him over excited but, like with most things, training would help with that - he has an almost reddish tint to his coat, he's gorgeous - wicked athlete, can jump high enough to look you in the eye, can climb up everything so far -confident little man, sometimes over confident - loves to snuggle under blankets - hangs with giant dogs no problem - very quick learner - mouthy, I've felt teeth but never an actual nip, he's learning - awesome in the crate - ok in the car if only harnessed in, better in a crate, been doing crate to the park, harnessed in after when he's tired - knows sit, getting pretty good with wait, down is a pain with little dudes and I've made zero progress there, place is in the works -sleeps through the night - no accidents so far -best half of an underbite ever -good with having his ears, face and feet played with - not a fan of baths -fits under the bed -15lbs, 11" at the shoulder - will be with me until a worthy home pops up because he's fantastic and quirky.Yaz is a gorgeous, big personality, two year old energetic dog in a tiny package with the best underbite ever. He loves playing with toys and fetch. So far he has sit pretty solidly. He hasn't had any accidents in the house, does very well in his crate, doesn't get into things around the house and he's working on his leash skills. He would do well with dog savvy kids who wouldn't encourage jumping or get him over excited. If you're looking for a very athletic and trainable dog he's your guy. Agility would be a blast. Yaz does great with big dogs, male or female. But he gets a little bossy with dogs his own size. He takes correction and redirection very well and has several successful, structured introductions with little dogs so far. Soon after he's playing freely with them. Yaz is smart and learns quick, especially that getting on the furniture or your lap requires an invitaion. He's a great dog that would love hiking, training and playing with you. It's hard to judge in photos, but Yaz is about 15 pounds. Yaz is neutered, up to date on vaccines, and microchipped. His adoption fee is $425.
