Our fee is $250 and dogs come spayed or neutered and up to date on basic shots except under unusual circumstances.  See the adoption page for more detail on what vetting is done.

Many times, a dog on this page will already be adopted by the time we process your application. If a dog you were looking at no longer appears on this page, please check our "Happy Endings" page to see if they've been adopted.

Meet Falcone!  He is a black tri male that is about 5 years old.  He is housebroken.  More to follow on this dog as he is pending medical evaluation.  He is fostered in Maineville, OH.  NS 2306

London is an 8-9 yr old male black tri aussie.  He is a tall boy that weighs about 60 lbs.  He is good with other dogs, will alarm bark, but is good with strangers.

He is very strong, and we are working on leash manners, but he is great off lead.  He comes when called and knows sit.  He is crate and kennel trained.  He just wants to hang out.  He is up to date on all shots and neutered, and likes human attention. 

He has had a hard life, and was found wandering the streets, and an older gentleman took him to try to find his owner, but no one claimed him.  He'd love to spend his remaining years with you. 

London is located in Maineville, OH. 

Apply here for him.  NS 1943

This beautiful boy is heartworm positive and will soon be completely heartworm free with proper treatment.  He will be adopted by his foster Mom upon completion of his treatment.  NS2278
There are some other great dogs in our program that are heartworm positive too, and we appreciate donations to help us cover the cost of their treatments.

Once treatments are completed they are completely healthy and available for adoption!

Alexia This blue-eyed girl is said to be 15 but seems much younger, she is energetic and loves to play.  The previous caretaker is no longer at liberty so the family who has her now is turning her over to New Spirit since they have a farm with cows and can't take a chance she'll chase them. She's a little reserved at first with new poeple but warms up pretty quickly, and is especially drawn to men.  Foster location TBD.  NS2654
James Fenimore Cooper

Cooper turns 4 in February 2017.  He is a red tri, neutered and weighs about 50 pounds. He is crate trained and does not lift his leg in the house and is housebroken.  He is a kind, gentle soul who prefers a quieter setting.  He walks well on a leash and will follow his person from room to room.  He came from a strict environment and is still relaxing. Every now and then he shows me his goofy self.

He gets along with other dogs well unless they are too rambunctious, then he avoids them altogether.  He has a low energy level but as he learns to relax, we think he will become a medium energy dog in time. He is high on the velcro scale for now but still needs a fenced in yard (no invisible fences).  He is fine with all people but would prefer children 10 and up because of less commotion in the household. He loves to chew on bones, has picked up a toy once but didn't know what to do with it.

Cooper is being fostered in Lansing, MI

Laela - ADOPTION PENDING is a 1.5 yr old blue merle female.  She is awaiting vetting and will be available soon, she will be located in the Dayton area for fostering. NS2682


This is Frank, he is a 1.5-2 yr old red Merle male with one blue eye and one partial blue.  He loves everyone and is learning everything.  He can sit, always comes, and is going potty outside.   He is learning to be crate trained and is doing well, but he needs leash work and house manners.  He is Mr. Personality!  

Frank is great with all dogs (we have no cats so cannot report on that).  He is a gentle guy with a lot of energy who is ready to have his own home.  

Frank is fostered in Maineville Ohio.

Apply here for him.  NS2681


Arnie is one high energy, ball-crazy 16 months old blue merle. He weighs in between 55 - 60 pounds. He is too big and too energetic for his previous people.

He knows appropriate dog play, and gets along with the resident dogs. He is interested in the resident cats but doesnt really bother them.

Apply here for him.  NS2715


Ruff is a beautiful, big, purebred 9 year old black tri weighing in at 78 pounds.  He is heartworm negative, neutered and up to date on his vaccines.  Ruff spent a good portion of his life on a farm, and would do well in a home with a fenced yard to run in.  We believe he is housebroken as he did not soil his kennel. 

Ruff recently got into some trouble with the lambs on the farm, and for that reason, should have a home without cats or other small animals as a safety precaution.  He has been with other dogs but would be fine as an only dog too.

As we learn more about Ruff, we will update his bio.
