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"!

Glad Dogs Nation

Get unique toys and other items your dogs will love and NEW SPIRIT gets 20% of your total purchase!

Glad Dogs Nation adorable handcrafted dog toys start out as unwanted children’s stuffed toys. They wash them in hot water using biodegradable detergent. 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 Special Memorial to a Special Guy
Dusty Miller NS 2250
Dusty was a beautiful, extra large, Deerhound/Aussie mix. He came to NS4AR as the result of an unfortunate development. He was a senior, and his owner, who had loved him dearly, entered hospice care.. He sat out, chained, round the clock, waiting for his master's return, which never happened.  When he came to NS, he was matted and 30 pounds underweight. But he was always a happy boy, friendly and eager to snuggle and ask for a pet. We cleaned him up, got him badly needed medication and nursed him back to a healthy weight.

From that point on, he was the picture of beauty. When I first met him, he wouldn't leave my side. I asked to take him home for a day's foster trial and he never looked back.  A day became a weekend, a weekend a month, and I thought he'd be with me forever. But he had one last stop. A nice retired couple from New England came across his story and thought he might like to retire to their horse farm. We couldn't deny him that pleasure. He moved in with them, but alas, it was not to be. A few days after his arrival, his body decided it had reached the last stop. He left us with a smile on his face after having eaten a McDonald's sausage patty.

We were deeply touched by this giant, loving soul. He was everyone's friend and everyone his. We love and miss you dearly, G-Paw and wanted you to know that you left the world a better place-- Franco Sirkin, New Spirit Volunteer
