Story
Nerd Alert! Leslie is a southern girl who was trapped outside and has spent the last few months learning how to "Dog". It's a slow process. This sweet girl is painfully nervous of new people and new situations, but dogs that are patient with her make it better. Leslie is working on all normal dog things, walking on leash, going to the bathroom outside, etc. But it takes time and a lot of patience. Due to her fear, we are requiring that you have a fully fenced in yard and a very well-adjusted dog and people friendly dog to help her. When it comes to other dogs, Leslie is all "Wanna hang out? Yeah, it seems like fun! It's nice to have a friend." Leslie shouldn't live with cats or children. For more information about Leslie, feel free to reach out to her emotional support human... at nstevens@rescueleague.org

Story
Hi, my name is Luna, and I am an excitable and fun girl. Whenever I go out, I have to stop and say hello to everyone I pass. I enjoy playing, running, and having a good time. I was originally found as a stray. I was adopted for a short time, but it just wasn't the right match. I need consistency, exercise and plenty of training. I'm a work in progress. I could potentially be a good match for another active dog, but would probably be best in a home without cats. Anyone out there need a running partner? If you are interested in meeting me, please call the shelter at 603-472-3647, press 1 for adoptions.

***Please note, Emma is not at the Animal Rescue League of NH. She is being advertised here in hopes of preventing her surrender. For more information, please contact saddlebackpet@gmail.com*** Sadly, Emma's mom passed away leaving her desperate need for a new favorite person. Emma is the sweetest girl and has never met a person she didn't like. Everyone is greeted with smiles and a wagging tail! She is almost 5 years old, healthy and up to date on all of her veterinary needs. Emma is a smart girl, she knows her basic obedience and is both house and crate trained. This lady is a perfect copilot as she loves going for rides in the car even when those car rides end up at the vet office or the groomer. She's a very easy patient. Emma loves to play with toys! The only thing Emma does not like is other animals. This girl is looking to be your one and only. Ideally, a fenced yard would allow for plenty of play time. Emma is not quite suited to busy neighborhoods or city life. She's more of a country, rural girl. Emma deserves another chance at a happy home! Email saddlebackpet@gmail.com for more information and to meet her. ***Please note, Emma is not at the Animal Rescue League of NH. She is being advertised here in hopes of preventing her surrender.

Story
Who needs a little Hope?! This sweet 6month old mixed breed dog is looking for an active home where she will be surrounded by love. She seems to love everyone, but does take a little time to warm up to new people and animals. She's still learning and needs a family that can help her further her education. Hope would do well in a family with kids 10ish and up. She could potentially live with another dog if the introduction at the shelter went well. With the proper slow introduction. No cats for this girl. For more information about Hope, call the shelter at 603-472-3647 (press 1 for adoptions)

Story
Yes, two Great Danes! With two great Danish names! These ladies are Hilda and Frida. Hilda and Frida are a bonded pair, so they need to go home together. Hilda is the bolder and bossier of the pair, but Frida doesn't mind that much because as long as she gets to be with Hilda, it doesn't matter who's in charge. They ABSOLUTELY love one another. Here at the shelter, they sometimes even cuddle up on a bed together though there are two beds in their kennel. They came to the shelter as two dogs from an owner who was overwhelmed with too many animals. Their former owner loved them (they're sweet and friendly girls), but they had to make the decision to bring Hilda and Frida into the shelter so that they could get the proper care and attention they needed. Hilda and Frida are a whole lot of dog times two!! They're big ladies who like to have fun, play, run in the yard and get attention and love from anyone and everyone who's available at any given moment! They play really well together and enjoy one another's company, but they don't appear to like any other dogs (they're very reactive toward other dogs here at the shelter) so they want to be your only pets. They're looking for an adult-only home (teens might be okay). If you're interested in these big bold beauties, give us a call at (603) 472-3647 and press 1 for adoptions, to schedule an appointment to meet them!

Yes, two Great Danes! With two great Danish names! These ladies are Frida and Hilda. Frida and Hilda are a bonded pair, so they need to go home together. Frida is the "softer" of the two - Hilda is a bolder, bossier gal while Frida is just happy to follow along and go with the flow. It doesn't matter who's in charge, as long as Hilda is by her side, everything is good. They ABSOLUTELY love one another.
