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
Axyl is a beautiful 19-month-old blue merle male with piercing blue eyes. He weighs approximately 35 lbs. (needs to gain about 10 more). He's a sweet boy with a lot of that young-dog exuberance. He received very little training at his former home, but he is definitely housebroken, going in a crate is hit or miss (so far he's been ok loose for short periods when foster goes out).
Axyl will need someone who is experienced in dog training and understands the value of training to form that strong bond between owner and dog. He's a quick learner, and he tries hard to please. He needs someone who is willing to show him the way forward and patiently provide clear direction on what is expected of him. If he understands that you are the leader, he will be that "velcro" best friend you've been looking for!
Axyl may need to be an only dog -- not that he doesn't like other dogs, he just irritates them because of his constant desire to play, not always taking "no" for an answer. This may change with training and as he gets older. He's a very sweet boy who just wants to be someone's buddy!
Axyl is fostered in Ormond Beach, FL.

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

Ace of Spades This nice looking Border Collie was pulled as a stray. He is a classic black and white with ticking on his legs and under his chin. We're not totally sure of his age but he's approximately 4-5. Ace is around 40-45lbs. He's a sweet natured fella who needs a patient hand. Ace seems to be new to the home life and he's learning how to be a house dog. He hasn't been around cats or kids. He does okay around other dogs but he likes to hump. Ace would be a medium energy medium velcro type dog. He likes men and women, but prefers the ladies. Although he doesn't know any commands he walks wonderfully on leash and kennels nicely with a treat. Ace hasn't shown interest in playing with toys own his own, but he will chase a thrown toy and then try to bury it. Ace probably has high prey drive to animals in nature and smaller dogs, we're still deciding if he likes resident Chihuahua. He has no training and no recall so a fenced yard and leash walking is best. He loves his food and will guard it against other pets. More to come as we get to know him and his personality. Ace is fostered in Aiken, SC NS3900
