Nitro, despite his unfortunate start to life, is a very happy and friendly dog.  Nitro is a 1 1/2 year old Shepherd mix who is housetrained, crate-trained and is good with dogs and cats. Nitro walks/runs very well on the leash and only pulls slightly when there is another dog he wants to meet or if he spots a squirrel, but can be easily redirected away from it.  He enjoys the exercise but is also content to lay around the house if that is what you are doing.  He is shy when first meeting people but quickly warms up and loves to be around everyone.  He is good with kids but does cower (with no aggression) when approached quickly, but when given a minute sniff to he is eager to be their friend!  We believe he would do well in any kind of household, with or without children or pets.  Nitro does whine and bark when initially left alone but does settle down and has gotten better since we've had him and will only continue to progress.  He loves peanut butter, snuggling really close to you, giving kisses, chewing on bones and going for walks!  Nitro's tail is always wagging and is a very loving and happy dog and is ready to find a permanent home to call his own.  PLEASE NOTE:  Our dogs are transported from Tennessee to meeting places in the states where we have posted.  Further information about us is given on our Adopt-A-Pet site.  The adoption fees vary and will be provided as well as noted on the application you receive.  Contact us at 615-661-5333 or

About Critter Companion Rescue- NJ

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a group of dedicated rescue people who want to save as many dogs and cats from the local shelters before they are euthanized. On the average....there are only 1 out of 10 animals that get adopted from a shelter. We are dedicated to helping increase pet adoptions by offering a shelter animal a foster home to go to while awaiting an adoptive family to find them on our Petfinder website. Won't you please adopt a shelter animal? Or won't you please help us foster a shelter animal while we are looking for their perfect home? What a gift you can give a dog or cat by giving them a place to feel safe and secure....a forever home or a foster home. Won't you help us at Critter Companion Rescue give them a chance to have a life?

Our Adoption Process...

Most all our dogs are fostered in Tennessee and transport up to the Northeast or New England. Our fees start at $500 and can be higher depending on the dog and circumstances for their vetting. All fees cover the health certificate, transportation up to designated places for families to pick up their pre-adopted dog, spay/neuter, rabies, all shots, fecal and dewormings, microchip, complete vet check up and 4 way heartworm test if dogs are older than 8 months.
