Every dog has his day!
No truer words were ever spoken. Each one also has his or her own story. Some of those are recounted here, for your enjoyment, amusement, or heartfelt sympathy.
New Spirit volunteers work hard to make sure that our dogs get that day in the sun!
Siggins was found in an outdoor shelter, dirty, matted and so debilitated that he could not wag his tail. The victim of what appeared to be years of neglect by his owner, he was picked up as a stray after being hit by a car. Due to his age, about 12 years, he was not a good candidate for adoption in the shelter.
Fortunately, he caught the eye of a rescue worker and was pulled from the shelter. After months of rehab, his injuries healed as well as could be expected for a senior dog and he was eventually adopted by a loving couple that wanted to give an old dog a good home. His story is the essence of rescue.

Ozzie is a happy, friendly young guy who is looking for a new home. This Aussie/Spaniel mix is 2 years old and weighs about 50 pounds. He needs to be neutered but is up to date on his vaccines.
Ozzie is housebroken, crate-trained and knows his basic obedience commands. He does pretty well on the leash and loves to ride in the car!
Ozzie loves people, including children, and is very good with other dogs. He is a high Velcro, medium energy guy who loves some good exercise every day but then settles well when playtime is over. Ozzie is quite the outdoors man. He enjoys hiking with his owner and hanging out at the farm. Ozzie is not good with cats and cannot be around chickens.
Ozzie’s ideal home is with a person or family who has time to spend with him, has time to exercise him outdoors and then enjoys a cuddle-partner in the evenings. Ozzie currently lives in Montague, New Jersey. If he sounds like your kind of guy please contact his owner directly at email@example.com.
Blue is a 1 yr old Australian shepherd and hound mix. He
is up to date on all shots. He is good with all humans, most dogs except small ones, and will tolerate a cat.
He is housebroken, he is friendly and energetic, and loves to play ball.
Rusty is an Aussie mix with a tail. He is a wonderful boy, sweet as can be, a spry and happy 9 year old boy. At about 50 pounds he has a few pounds to lose but he is a handsome guy, anyone would be proud to have him at their side.
Rusty's story: his owner passed away and the owner's wife is going into independent living, so Rusty needs his own retirement home. Rusty is located in the Pittsburgh, PA area. He is well vetted, and he will soon have a dental. Rusty is house broken, hasn't been crated and doesn't need a crate.
Rusty and I played squeaky ball for a bit, both of us enjoying the game. He loves to be petted, but doesn't always like his feet or his neck handled. I think a harness would be better for this boy. Rusty likes other dogs, will play, has not met a cat, but he is an easy going fellow. He loved to walk with his owner and would love to have a new walking companion. If you are interested in Rusty, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Young Harley is one sweet Aussie mix looking for a new home. This female blue merle with one “stand-up” ear is just 7 months old and weighs 40 pounds. She is spayed and up to date on her vaccines. Harley is housebroken, crate-trained, knows her basic commands and rides beautifully in the car. Walking on a leash is not her best skill but she is willing to learn!
Harley loves people. She is still learning not to jump on people, though, so she would not be the best dog around small children. She loves other dogs and has not been cat-tested. Harley is an amazing pal – she loves to play with toys and with other dogs. Harley loves to go on walks and she loves the water! And when all this play is done, she loves a good cuddle.
Harley’s ideal home includes an active family who has the time to play with this cute girl and also continue to train her to be the best dog ever. A fenced yard, another dog to play with and her wish list is complete!
