Jessa is a 3-4 yr old red Merle female mini, who came to us from a local shelter after her family turned her in stating they did not have time for her.
She is a delightful dog. She is house broken, crate trained, knows, come, sit, down, go potty, and is pretty good on leash. She loves riding in the car, and is good with most dogs. She is bit pushy herself, so she is good with most dogs, but that occasional high alpha female may not be the best match. Jessa is NOT cat friendly; she is not trustworthy around a cat. She would do best in a home with a male dog, and a physical fence, as she loves to chase the birds, squirrels and runs and tries to "catch" the thunder. When she is interested in these things, she forgets to come when called.
Meet LucyLou. She is a 1 yr old aussie mix that is a sweetheart. She is crate trained, knows sit, come, go potty, and is good with other dogs, but can be a tad pushy, but corrects well.
She loves all people, and is always wagging. She is very people oriented, and wants to please.
Lucy Lou is in Maineville, OH.

Flasher is a 1 yr old black and white pure bred aussie, who is a dream of a dog. He loves everyone, does a great play bow to get dogs to play with him. And He LOVES all the people and loves to be hugged.
He is typical young very active aussie, and does have herding instinct (sheep tested). He is crate trained, house broken, and knows sit, come, down, off and go potty. He still jumps a little to say hello and get petted, but we’re working on that. He is small average at 39lbs, tailless, and loves to ride in the car. He is fast and would be a great agility dog.
He is being fostered in Maineville OH.

Kevin is a red male with a full fluffy tail that perpetually wags. He is a short chubby fuzzy ball of happiness, probably around 35lbs or so. He is neutered and up to date on all his necessities. He is very enthusiastic and loves going out in the yard, yet will quiet down in the house and chill out with you. He likes his crate and is quiet as a mouse all night. He has not been cat tested, but gets along great with the other dogs, loves to run and play with them. He is a medium on the energy scale, he gets excited and rockets around yet quiets down nicely, too. He is medium on the velcro scale as well. He loves to sit and be pet but will go lay in the other room as well. He does not get upset when left alone (in his crate).
There were a couple of marking attempts in the house on his first day, but he has been good these last couple of days, so we will chalk it up to excitement / nerves. He is OK on leash, could use some practice and seems to know sit and down pretty well, very gut driven and will do all his tricks for a snack. Kevin has not tried to get anything off the counters nor has he tried to get on the couch. He hasn't tried to chew anything inappropriate either. He doesn't answer much to being called "Kevin" but he comes to any friendly call with tail wagging enthusiasm. We are trying some different names to see what he likes best. He has been very friendly and outgoing right off the bat with both men and women. He has not been kid tested, but not will probably be fine. He is a very sweet little guy!
He is being fostered in Bonnieville, KY.

Pepperoni is a beautiful blue merle who loves to be with his people. He is a young male weighing about 50 pounds and is in need of some basic obedience training, but learns quickly and bonds easily. He walks pretty well on a leash and loves to put his front paws around your waist and give a hug. Stay tuned for updates, but if this sweet boy tugs at your heart he is ready for his new home. He will be fostered in the Heartland. NS 1978
Pluto is a beautiful red tri male that has just joined New Spirit and will be fostered in KY. Stay tuned for updates. NS 2015
Meet Beamer, a senior Aussie from Central TN. He was left behind when a house was sold. We are just learning about Beamer. Stay tuned. NS XXXX
Daacota is a 1-2 yr old red tri male with a tail. He is smaller boned and about 26lbs. He loves all the people he meets. He knows sit, loves to ride in the car, is good with other dogs. He is also housebroken goes potty on command, and loves his belly rubbed. He is working on his counter surfing.
He can be a tad hesitant with new things, and is very observant. He will notice new boxes, and if you did not put the trash cans back in the same place, but he takes it all in stride with a quick, "it's okay". He is fast in the yard, and eager to please.
He is fostered in Maineville, OH and is ready for his forever home.
Apply here for him! NS 1937
