Penuche is an adorable low rider, she is an aussie/corgi/?? mix. We pulled her mother a few months ago, Wiglet, who was a corgi/aussie mix (dad was aussie/mom was corgi). Penuche is around 1 1/2 yrs old. She is very terrified of people as she was pretty much ingnored and left to her own devices. She does well with other dogs and is trying to play with the foster's dogs! Her foster parents are working with her and she seems to be doing better with the husband (her former owner was a woman). We will update when we have more. She is fostered in Thonotasassa, FL NS2745
Kozmo is 5 yrs old, he's an Aussie/Border Collie cross. Kozmo is a bigger boy, weighing in at 70 lbs.
He is fostered in a home with 2 other dogs; he's having a blast with one but the other is deaf/blind and pushy, something Kozmo isn't appreciating.
According to his previous owner he's good with men/women/children and cats (foster doesn't have cats). He is still new to us so more info as we get to know him. Kozmo is fostered in Tampa, FL NS2938
BearBear came in as a stray from a local shelter; he's pretty timid but we can tell he'll come around. He's already trusting his foster parents and is acclimating into the pack (2 other dogs). Shelter says he's about 4 but we feel he may be a bit older. BearBear was so matted the shelter couldn't even tell if he was neutered or not. Thankfully they had him shaved down and bathed for us and found that he is neutered!! He has been vetted all except a heartworm test. Right now BearBear is just taking it easy. He's not thrilled with a leash so his foster home is just letting him drag it around and be chill. They will start working with him once he's decompressed. We think he's going to be a sweet heart of a Bear! BearBear is fostered in Ormond Beach, FL NSXXXX
Jake is a 6 years young, 55 pound active boy who is neutered, up to date on all his shots and heartworm negative. He has been returned to New Spirit after the death of his owner.
Jake is a wonderfully active boy who has never met a stranger. He loves playing rowdy games with his foster sister and yet is quiet and respectful of the senior dog in the house. He is curious about cats but seems like he just wants to play.
Due to the energetic manner, a fenced yard would be good. If no fence, his adoptive family will need a plan to help him burn off energy. Preteens or older children would help keep Jake active. He loves chasing balls but at the end of the day is ready cuddle.
Jake is fostered in North Augusta, SC

Jaskier is a gorgeous 2yr old black tri male. He's a tall boy at about 45lbs. Jaskier has been good with children and other animals. He can be a little rambunctious with his play time so we suggest dog savvy kids and cats. He loves all dogs. He's good with people, just needing time to warm up to new friends.
Jaskier loves to run in the fenced yard but walks very well on leash. Jaskier spent most his time outdoors but has learned to love being indoors and adores his kennel. Despite his outdoor life, he hasn't had any issues with house training.
Jaskier has been around livestock and farm animals but he plays too hard to be with free range chickens.
Jaskier is fostered in Aiken, SC

Tassie is a 3 yr old, 36lb Black Bi female. Shes a sweet, shy girl. We are getting to know her. Tassie will be going through heartworm treatment soon so not available at this time. Fostered in Brandon, FL NS2985
Koda is a two year old purebred aussie who has sadly been turned in by his owner whose work schedule prevented him from providing the exercise he needs. As a young pup he is full of energy, loves to chase balls, play rope tug and has actually learned to run beside a bicycle!
He is crate, house and leash trained though better on a harness than a collar and leash and loves to ride in cars.
Koda needs a house with a fenced yard or a runner in the family who will help him burn off all that young aussie energy. He was supposed to be trimmed but the groomer shaved him. Pictures of what he is and what he will be when the hair grows back. More details when we know him better.

Girls just wanna have fun, that's Aspen Freckles! This super smart,10 month old (40lb) girl would do well in an active home with another playful dog (she likes dogs). She likes children but WILL herd small children and they may not appreciate it (nor would their parents) so older children would be best (12 and up).
Aspen is fun! She's learning fetch and frisbee, (learning drop it), loves to chase, and play tug a war. She plays with toys and chews on bones or a Kong, is loving and cuddly! Aspen really enjoys the dog park. She enjoys riding in the car and going for walks.
Noble Jones is a 53 lb black tri who was taken in as a stray. He has perfected the art of snuggling, can be a couch potato and is super Velcro. His favorite toy is a Wubba. You will never be lonesome with this boy in your home. Fostered in Trenton, SC NS3905
Lady came in as a stray in GA. She is about 10 and a solid 50 pounds. But she is a true lady who rides well in the car and is polite on leash.
This girl has been shaved due to excessive matting. When the hair grows in, she will be a gorgeous blue Merle. She enjoys a quiet stroll through the garden or gentle walk around the neighborhood. She is ready to find her perfect snuggle person, male or female.
Lady is good with other dogs, men and women. She will be content in a less active home where she can share quiet time with love.

Aspen is not overly fond of going into her crate but does well once in it. She sleeps in it at night and is crated when no one is home, she's not reliable yet to be left loose...for this reason we'd like a home that isn't gone for more than 4 hrs a day.

Hello Link, welcome to New Spirit!
We don't know much about this handsome black tri boy, he came into the shelter as a stray. Link was micro chipped, owner was contacted, sadly they gave him away and didn't want him back. We've been told he's 3 yrs old, he's thin at around 36lbs (needs to gain at least 10lbs) and had some fur missing, probably from fleas. Link looks to be an Aussie x Border Collie?? Has a long beautiful tail.
So far Link has been a nice boy, loves to lay on your lap. He is a little anxious in the house but doing better, probably hasn't been allowed in much. He needs some manners and training - he's a quick study and will come along quickly. He does well with the other dogs in the home.
He's new to us so we are getting to know him....will have more info once we get to know him better.

Frappe is a 4 yr old (shelter estimate), 36 lbs (under weight) blue merle male. Frappe came to us via a FL shelter where he was picked up as stray, possibly hit by a car (limping/not using his right rear leg). The shelter vet took x-rays and no breaks or fractures were noted. His foster mom took them to her vet, he suggested 30 days crate rest and then rehab. On top of that he's come down with kennel cough!
Frappe is such a good boy, he's house and crate trained. He's very affectionate and loves to be petted. It's going to be a long boring 30 days, he'd love to have something to keep himself busy. Donations are welcome so we can buy him something to help him stay mentally occupied. Thanks! Fostered in Apopka, FL NS3919
