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"!

It is with much grief and regret that I tell you yesterday John and I had Panda euthanized.
About four weeks ago Panda began vomiting. This occurred intermittently and my vet gave me anti-nausea drugs for him and told me that the next step would be x-rays. By the following weekend the vomiting had worsened and I took him to the emergency vet where he was x-rayed. The x-rays showed he had a huge mass covering his stomach. From that day forward Panda was on anti-nausea drugs, pain killers and finally appetite stimulators.
Making the decision to have Panda euthanized was one of the most difficult decisions we ever had to make. He was a stoic and dignified boy and we loved him completely. He was euthanized at home with his head in my lap, then buried on our property.
Panda was with us for the last three years of his life and from day one we loved him unreservedly. There will never be another Panda. He was the best dog we ever had (and there were six before him) and I can’t thank you enough for sharing him with us. I only wish it could have been for many more years.
Sue and John ❤️
Note: New Spirit successfully placed Panda twice over the last 10 years.
