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

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
Doze is a BIG handsome fellow! He weighs approx 93 lbs, yes you read that right! Don't let his size fool you, he has a lovely disposition and is good with other dogs (lived with two cattle dogs). Doze is 7-8 years old.
He is crate trained and housebroken, and walks nicely on a leash! His foster dad says he is very well tempered and is his shadow, following him every where he goes, this boy sticks close by (but isn't a pest).
Doze is fostered in Zephyrhills, FL

Mister Zeb and Bonnie Bella
Mister Zeb and Bonnie Bella are two of the sweetest, most easy-going Aussies you will ever meet. These littermates are 7 years old, very healthy and weigh 58 and 50 pounds respectively.
Mister Zeb is the handsome blue merle and Bonnie Bella is the pretty black tri. They are housebroken, crate trained, have wonderful house manners, walk beautifully on a leash and ride very well in the car.
Mister Zeb and Bonnie Bella love people, including children, and other dogs. They have not been cat tested. They are a medium energy, easy-going pair who enjoy spending time with their foster mom and new dog pal, walking in the neighborhood and just hanging out. Zeb is a playful guy who enjoys chasing the ball while Bonnie Bella is more Velcro, preferring to split her time between her dog pals and her foster mom.
Ideally, we would love to adopt Mister Zeb and Bonnie Bella to the same family, a family who would like to share their home with these two gentle souls. Other dogs would be great, children would be welcome, and a fenced yard is fine but not required.
If you have room in your hearts and home for these two please apply today!
Mister Zeb and Bonnie Bella are fostered in Dahlonega, GA.

Welcome Granger, our newest New Spirit boy!
Granger is a 2 yr old black tri male weighing about 40 lbs. He is good with other dogs but we are not sure about cats although he loved the bunny in his former home.
He reported house and crate trained. Granger does pull on his leash and will need help learning to walk well with his owner. He is great with little children and people in general although he is a little shy with men at first.
Granger will be fostered in Apopka, FL.

Scooby Doo is one fun guy in search of a new home! This two year old Aussie mix weighs about 45 pounds and has a beautiful coat that is mostly white with patches of black and brown. Scooby Doo is housebroken, has wonderful house manners, walks well on a leash, knows many basic commands and loves to ride in a car. What a guy!
Scooby Doo loves all people, including children, and gets along great with other dogs. He has not been cat tested. Scooby Doo loves to hang out with his foster family, doing whatever it is that they are doing. Playing in the yard with the other dogs or with a toy? Great! Eating? Perfect! Watching TV in the evening after dinner? Count him in! Everything is fun for this medium Velcro, medium energy boy.
Scooby Doo’s ideal home is with a family looking for a great companion who is ready to be part of their human/dog pack. He is an adaptable guy who would do well in a number of living situations, but a fenced yard and another dog or two are required. Ready to add a Scooby Doo to your family pack? Apply now!
