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
CoComelon - ADOPTION PENDING
Lovley little CoCo is a mini boy who is full of energy and love. Wondering in the streets, CoCo has adjusted well to living in a home environment. He's a red tri at 34 lbs and approximately 4 years old.
CoCo has done really well with other dogs when introduced properly. He'll need a day or two to open up his big heart, but once he does, he plays very well. CoCo would do well with a dog of his size and age(or younger). He likes to chase a big jolly ball around the yard and play hard with his younger foster sibling. He hasn't been exposed to cats or children in his foster home. We'd say probably best if kids were older and very dog savvy cats. CoCo is a mid-high energy, medium velcro, 100% cute and loveable boy.
Although he's a sweetheart, he does need more training. CoCo is still learning not to pull on a leash, and we're working on his recall(he may have ADD). He has learned the cues sit and down, potty trained, and is crate trained. CoCo will need to be fed separately from any others as he will resource guard his food. He accepts treats nicely with others around. CoComelon would love to have his very own forever family!

Rocky Red Rocky
Rocky Red Rocky is a neutered doubled red merle male, weighing in at 60 pounds, 8 1/2 y.o. You will immediately fall in love with this shy, anxious loving guy. Rocky believes that he is the size of a lap dog, so he cant understand why he has problems fitting on your lap. His blue eye are piercingly beautiful and expressive.
He is fine with dog savvy cats and plays well with my other dogs. He would be most comfortable with a passive older dog as his companion or as an only dog in a quiet older owner home. Rocky is very high level velcro. His energy level is mid level. He walks fairly well on a leash. He needs more time learning good leash skills. Housebroken and crate trained. He is not crated at night or when I leave the house. He has good house manners. Rocky does well with adults. I will not place him with in a home with children.
Rocky needs a fenced yard, his recall is terrible. He doesn't show much interest in squirrels but would love to catch a rabbit. This shy anxious guy hides from strangers. He will socialize after awhile. He is currently taking Prozac for his anxiety. The perfect home for this loving senior gentleman would be stable, quiet, and loving with plenty of patience as he readjust to a new home.

Beaux came to New Spirit when his family decided the dogs had more energy than they could deal with when they added a child. And Beaux, at age 9, and 55 pounds, has the energy of a 4 yo. He can out run and out jump his 5 yo foster brother. When out on leash, he wants to explore everything but does so without pulling on his leash. He is up-to-date on all his shots and neutered. He knows come and sit, especially if you are about to attach a leash. He is house and crate trained.
Beaux is an active dog who loves to chase balls and will bring it back but might be a bit reluctant to let go. But he will and then be ready to run again. He is very social and gets along with other dogs. He is respectful of dogs who aren't in the mood for his energy. He loves meeting people and wants attention. Unfortunately he is willing to stand up and put paws on the visitor. He is also a super cuddler but isn't afraid to paw you or use his nose to toss your elbow for attention. For this reason, Beaux should be in a family with older children.
This dog would do well with an older, active family. He loves to ride in the car and has traveled extensively in his former life. A fenced yard or a safe area for a period of ball chasing daily would be preferred. He isn't overly interested in local squirrels but he is unknown with cats. Beaux is looking forward for new adventures soon.

Chewy is an adorable 12 wk old red tri male puppy weighing about 7lbs. He's going to be a either a large toy or a small mini.
Chewy loves playing with other dogs (no idea about cats), loves children, and cuddling (once he's tired out). He is not a fan of being crated during the day but does well at night in fosters bedroom. He's still a puppy so does annoying puppy things such as stealing shoes, throw rugs, and anything laying around!! Chewy is doing well with house training as long as he's let out on time.
Chewy needs training as do all puppies, so adopter must be committed to a puppy class and a basic manners class. This is great bonding between the two and will give him some of the socialization he'll need to become a well rounded adult.
