Every dog has his day!
No truer words were ever spoken. Each one also has his or her own story. Some of those are recounted here, for your enjoyment, amusement, or heartfelt sympathy.
New Spirit volunteers work hard to make sure that our dogs get that day in the sun!
Siggins was found in an outdoor shelter, dirty, matted and so debilitated that he could not wag his tail. The victim of what appeared to be years of neglect by his owner, he was picked up as a stray after being hit by a car. Due to his age, about 12 years, he was not a good candidate for adoption in the shelter.
Fortunately, he caught the eye of a rescue worker and was pulled from the shelter. After months of rehab, his injuries healed as well as could be expected for a senior dog and he was eventually adopted by a loving couple that wanted to give an old dog a good home. His story is the essence of rescue.

Abby is a sweet, friendly 5-year-old purebred Aussie in search of a new home. This beautiful black tri weighs 65 pounds and she is housebroken, crate-trained, knows her basic commands, walks OK on a leash and rides well in the car.
Abby loves adults but has not had a lot of exposure to children. She is fine with small dogs and larger male dogs, although some larger female dogs make her nervous. Abby also thinks of herself as the “kitten whisperer”, having assisted with some litters of foster kittens a few years ago – she loved it! Abby is described as a medium energy, medium-to-high Velcro dog. She loves to play ball, fetch, chase and swim. And when playtime is over, she loves to snuggle and simply be wherever her humans are.
Abby’s ideal home includes an active family with plenty of time for her. A “non-bossy” dog would be fine with her, and a fenced yard would be fabulous.
If Abby sounds like your kind of girl, please contact her owner directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Abby currently lives in Fountain Inn, SC.
Little Bailey is a seriously cute purebred Aussie in search of a new home! This pretty red tri with a deep red coat is just 16 months old and is a great weight at 37 ½ pounds. She is housebroken, pulls some when on leash and knows some basic commands. Bailey is fully vaccinated and she is spayed.
Bailey loves people and has never met a stranger. No Aussie reserve here! She is a playful girl who loves to play ball and who is described as medium energy – loves to play but then is a great cuddler when playtime is over! Bailey is not a fan of other dogs and chases cats. She would prefer to be your “one and only”.
Bailey’s ideal home includes an active family who would like just one dog in their lives, and no cats. Bailey could use some additional obedience training and a home with children over the age of 10 would be best – we would not want her to accidentally knock a child down! Bailey currently lives in Bolivar, Ohio, and if you are interested in learning more about her please email her contact person at email@example.com.
Lola is a very pretty, easy-going 10-year-old purebred Aussie whose owner died and so she is now in need of a new home. She is a bit overweight at 55 pounds and has a gorgeous, thick red tri coat. Lola is housebroken, crate-trained and knows her basic commands. She rides very well in the car.
Lola loves people. When her owner was alive she was by his side all day every day. When not playing with her current caretaker she enjoys her toys, and she loves to put as many as possible between her front legs! Lola is not a team player though. She never had to share her owner with another dog and is not comfortable sharing her home with another dog now. She has not been cat tested.
The ideal home for Lola includes one or more adults who have plenty of time to spend with her every day. Go for a walk? Great! Go on a car ride? Perfect! Cuddle on the couch? Yes! Lola lives in northwest, PA, and if you are looking for a loving sweetie of a girl please contact her caretaker directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
