Andy is a young adult Aussie that was abandoned with two other dogs. He was confiscated by animal control and spent several months there until the court case was settled. A kind veterinarian (who is friends with a NS adopter) contacted New Spirit about helping Andy.

Andy is a wonderful boy that does extremely well with the other Aussies in his foster home. In fact, he must have a canine companion to follow and lead him. Andy is also fostered with cats and completely ignores them.

Andy is such a sweet, loving dog who wants his own person so very much.In most respects, he's the perfect dog - he's gorgeous, very smart, very sweet, loves to learn, loves other dogs, loves to play, with people and with dogs, has a nice drive (agility and herding are possibilities except for the man thing), totally ignores cats. And yet, he has such a deepset fear of men. He has a feral dog attitude when it comes to men.

Ideally Andy will require a home with no men, or one that is extremely understanding of his needs and fears and continuning his training. He will also require an Aussie experienced home, preferably one that has worked with neglect cases before and has the time and patience to help Andy transition into a new home.

Andy is fostered in Lawrenceville GA.

Mazzy is a beautiful blue merle with a half link bobbed tail.  She was trapped after running loose in North GA for a couple of years having litter after litter of puppies.  We'll be fixing that problem.  Despite this early beginning to her life, she is an absolute love and is gentle and laid back.  Mazzy will be fostered in Marietta, GA.  NS TBD

Cub is a 5 yr old black-bi mix that weighs about 50 lbs.

He really is a great guy! He is 100% respectful of the house, doesn't need to be crated, is completely housebroken, knows "sit," "down," "stay," and "beg." He is such a lover and just wants to give kisses and be snuggled all day.

He sleeps all night without wandering, and is content to stay in his bed until you wake up.  He LOVES people, and seeing other dogs on leash doesn't bother him. He's a dream in the car and just stares out the window. He takes his medicine easily, is low energy, and just wants to nap in the room you're in.
Cub is HW+ and will be beginning treatment at the end of August.  He is being fostered in Orlando, FL.  NS2121

Princess Grace is all that! Kind, loving overall sweet girl. Her 84 year old owner was unable to keep her and New Spirit was lucky to find her.

Phoenix is a 14 month old 28lb mini Aussie. She was purchased from a pet store by a young woman in Long Island. After a week, her owner realized that Aussies aren't the right fit for everyone, and placed Phoenix with her parents - who were not wanting a dog and asked that rescue take her.

Phoenix is a beautiful little girl. But please don't let her size fool you. She has grown up in a very loving home, but was also allowed to rule her own and her foster home is working very hard to set some boundaries for her. Phoenix is more responsive to men than she is women and does very well with other active dogs. They help in draining her high energy, but they also overstimulate her a bit, so play sessions need to be structured.

Phoenix is housetrained, rides well in the car but does pull a bit on leash. She did live with a cat previously and did well; however she must go to a home with cats that are accustomed to high energy dogs and can stand up for themselves and set boundaries with her. She must have an Aussie experienced home. One that is dedicated to training and setting boundaries for Phoenix or she will take over the home. She can also be a bit standoffish when meeting new people and needs and owner that can assist in her continued socialization. She is fostered in .

Drifter is spayed, crate trained and house broken.  She has not had any obedience training yet and her recall needs work, but she is so smart we are sure she will do well with good training.  She enjoys her rides in the car.

Drifter loves people of all ages but may be too much for small children.  She is very affectionate and loves attention.  She does not want to share her space with cats, squirrels or birds. She seems to enjoy the company of male dogs but not females – what a diva! 

Meet Drifter!  Drifter is a 6-years-young, happy and healthy black tri.  This high energy little purebred weighs just 28 pounds.  She was given up by her owners who could no longer care for a dog.
She would also be a great only-dog.  Drifter’s ideal home is a home with a male dog or no other pets, humans who love her, a fenced yard and lots of opportunities for walks and exercise. 

Drifter is being fostered near Greenville, NC.  Apply here for her.  NS 2126

Nicholson is about 6 years old, but his condition makes him seem older. His teeth are in good condition; however are worn down to the gums in front most likely from chewing on hard surfaces.  He currently weighs 45 lbs.

Despite his years of neglect, Nicholson is a love of a dog. He won the hearts of all the staff at the veterinary clinic where he was seen. He is housetrained, walks nicely on leash, is good with other dogs and rides great in the car.

Nicholson is a quiet boy who just loves some gentle pets and likes to stick right by his person. We are working very hard to get him back to health so that his outsides match his insides.

Nicholson will be fostered in Smyrna, GA.
