*COURTESY POST, NOT AT ARL* Bella was rescued from a very bad situation where she was abused and neglected. At sometime in her very early life she sustained a neck injury, it does not affect her in any way, but she always has her head tilted as you can see in the pics. She has no physical issues and is very active. She does have dry eye, which I have drops for. She is housebroken and uses pee pads, but also loves to go outside. She is very sweet and very smart and will become your constant companion. She is very skittish when she firsts meets people, but that is due to her being very small (7 lbs). She is playful and loving and very protective over her home and owner, she is a very good little girl. She likes to play in the leaves outside in the fall but does not like to get her feet wet. She wears her sweaters outside and loves to go for walks around the neighborhood. She will cuddle up to you while you are watching TV or just sitting, and she will play with her toys with you. Bella would be best in a house that does not have any children or other pets, I would prefer that she lives with someone who can give her a lot of attention and can spend time with her. I travel for work, which is why I need to re-home her. If you are interested, please email

Alright. We are just going to tell it to you straight. George needs a GSD savvy person. He needs to be the only pet, really your only child - he can't live with children. He would play fetch until he couldn't move any longer if allowed, so a fenced in yard is truly his calling. George does not like all people. George hates other animals, living with them is just not an option. George is a die hard fan of tennis balls and toys that squeak. He enjoys mulching sticks and eating ice cream and is appreciative of a fun car ride, even if it is just to get a coffee (for you) and a munchkin (for him). Some of you may remember that George was found in the woods of Merrimack, NH, emaciated and torn to shreds. He has finally fully recovered from that and is ready for a home. Potential homes just haven't quite worked out yet. George is picky about his friends and how he meets them. He is the type of dog that has bonded so hard to one person that he wants to protect them, so making new friends isn't always that easy for him. He needs people that are calm and easy going, and he'd really love someone willing to spend a lot of time tossing tennis balls for him (the squeaky tennis balls are his favorite). George's current person, an ARL staffer, is more than happy to introduce you to him if it seems like potentially a good match. He may not make the best first impression, but once you've bonded, you will have no better friend than George.

Hi! I'm Lulu! How cute am I... I mean seriously. I am a very sweet girl, but I've got a naughty side too. I have a LOT of energy, and I love to play, play, play. In my dream home I will get lots and lots of exercise so I can settle down and have a good nap at the end of the day. I love to be pet and paid attention to by the people I am familiar with, but I can tend to get a little excited, and when I get excited I do have a bad habit of being mouthy. This is a habit that my new family would need to help me break, so that I can be the best dog I can be! I would like to live in a home with adults only, as my mouthiness could be scary to kids. I am very sweet and love to give face kisses, and I'm just looking for a home that will love me back and give me lots of play time. Could that be you? Please come and meet me!

Maya here! I think I'm perfect, but the staff at the shelter have some differing opinions to mine. That's okay though because it means I get a lot more one on one time and training. I'm incredibly motivated by food. You see, I was originally a young pup, about 3.5 months old, found running solo as a stray in North Carolina. I managed to catch myself a ride to NH where these people have found me a few homes, none of which have quite worked out. Being on my own in the beginning I learned to guard the things I found to be important to me. Now there's a lot of talk about sharing, and I'm starting to get the hang of it, but I'm gonna be honest, it definitely does not come easy to me. I don't like to be yelled at. I do better in a calm coaching environment. I do get frustrated, when I don't understand what is expected of me. I like to stay busy. I like to play with toys. I like to explore. I like to have a job. Without a job, I get into things and that does not please the people around me...... sadly. So according to the fine folks who work and volunteer at the shelter, I am a diamond... or more like a piece of coal. If me and my new people work hard enough, there's a diamond in there somewhere. Really, I need someone with some time on their hands who is willing to be consistent with me, and take me through the necessary steps to succeed in a home. Ideally, I could just find my partner, perhaps they have an interest in dog training, and are active. I could get on board with having 2 adults in my life so long as they talked to me in the same manner and had the same expectations. I would like for my next home to be my last home! I've tried living with other animals before but it hasn't gone well, so unfortunately, I'm not the biggest fan of all other dogs. Again, I'm working on it, but in my next home, I want to be someone's pride and joy, and that's just easier if I'm the only one. I feel like maybe I focused a bit too much on what makes me a difficult pup, but on a positive note, I don't mind being in my crate. I play fetch and will trade toys. I'm very good about going to the bathroom outside. I already know several commands. I'm as cute as a button, and I can't pass up a good belly rub. Alright, I'll stop talking now, but if you want to know more about me before coming in to the shelter feel free to reach out to my friends at

Hi there, my name is Socks! Do you like to play fetch? I LOVE TO FETCH!!! I am a VERY busy doggy. As a typical hound, when I go outside I just have to investigate EVERYTHING! Can't leave any stone unturned, right? I am a very energetic dog who would love to be in a home where my adopters can give me a job, did I mention that I love to fetch?!? Sometimes I tend to be a little loud, but the world is just too interesting not to bark sometimes! The staff here thinks that I would be best as an only pet. I think someone who has experience with hounds would just love me. If you are looking for someone like me, please come and meet with me!
