Description:
Scarlett was a devoted mama dog who only had one puppy survive.  He was adopted long ago, but Scarlett had to stay behind to be treated for heartworm (as easily 75% of our mama dogs do, sadly).  She is now heartworm-free and ready to find her own happily ever after.  Scarlett lived with other dogs at her foster in MS but seemed to do well only with other, confident dogs.  We think she will do well as an only dog given this dog-selectiveness, and want a cat-free home as well.  With humans, she is the happiest, WIGGLIEST girl there is. She loves kids and adults equally and nearly turns herself inside out in her glee to be with a person.  She loves to play with toys and chase a ball and will just be an amazing, amazing companion for someone.  She is approximately 2 years old, spayed, microchipped, and up to date on vaccines and flea/tick preventatives.  Her adoption fee is partially sponsored and is just $250.  Applications are available on our website at www.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!).
