What we do: We evaluate Australian Shepherds and Australian Shepherd mixes from selected shelters and private owners no longer able to keep their Aussies. If we judge a dog suitable for placement with an average adopter, we foster it in private homes and get to know the dog. We then post the dog to our website and place it in an adoptive home where the energy levels, expectations and personalities are a good fit.
Think of us as a "doggie dating service"!

They remove hard eyes and put cute appliques in their place. They replace the hard noses with colorful pompoms. And they always add at least one squeaker inside. Then they offer the toys at a price below what you’d pay in a pet store – so no one needs to shed a tear if the toy is destroyed during play.
Finally, they spread the gladness by donating 100% of their profits to Glad Dogs Foundation which funds initiatives to rest of 2013, they are donating 20% of every purchase of toys and anything else at gladdogsnation.com to New Spirit Aussie Rescue when you use coupon code NS4AR.
A New Girl in Need
This is Aliyah, NS 1955, who had an accident at some point that left her without feeling or use of her left front leg. As you can see, it was getting badly damaged and infected, so the only remedy is to take the leg off and let her lead her life as a tripod. The vet expects that she will do just fine and be better off that way.
Aliyah is about 8 years old and a wonderful mix of Aussie and Australian Cattle Dog. She weighs 43 pounds and has a blue merle front end, a red merle back end, no tail, prick ears, two of the most beautiful blue eyes you ever saw, and the sweetest disposition east of the Rio Grande.
The best is she has a mohawk up her neck--no kidding! And it ends in a natural cowlick that plateaus on top of her head like a hat.
