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.

Blue is a 1 yr old Australian shepherd and hound mix. He
is up to date on all shots. He is good with all humans, most dogs except small ones, and will tolerate a cat.
He is housebroken, he is friendly and energetic, and loves to play ball.
Rusty is an Aussie mix with a tail. He is a wonderful boy, sweet as can be, a spry and happy 9 year old boy. At about 50 pounds he has a few pounds to lose but he is a handsome guy, anyone would be proud to have him at their side.
Rusty's story: his owner passed away and the owner's wife is going into independent living, so Rusty needs his own retirement home. Rusty is located in the Pittsburgh, PA area. He is well vetted, and he will soon have a dental. Rusty is house broken, hasn't been crated and doesn't need a crate.
Rusty and I played squeaky ball for a bit, both of us enjoying the game. He loves to be petted, but doesn't always like his feet or his neck handled. I think a harness would be better for this boy. Rusty likes other dogs, will play, has not met a cat, but he is an easy going fellow. He loved to walk with his owner and would love to have a new walking companion.

Mila is crate trained, housebroken, good with other dogs, and adult humans, medium energy level, loves car rides, but has not lived with a cat. She is not great with children.

Marti is a super cute, very sweet red tri Aussie in search of a new home. This pretty 4-year-old girl is a great size, weighing just 40 pounds. She is housebroken, crate trained, walks wonderfully on a leash and is learning her basic commands – she is super smart.
Until her rescue, Marti spent her life as a caged breeding dog, and so the whole world is new to her. She is very, very shy but you can tell she really wants to learn about everything and make some lasting friends. Marti’s foster mom has spent a lot of time with her, showing her that the world is a safe place and that people are really OK! Marti enjoys the company of other dogs – she gets her confidence from watching other dogs interact with people, with her and with other dogs. She is learning to play with toys, and when not playing with toys or other dogs she is happy just watching TV in the evening with the rest of her family. We would describe Marti as a low-to-medium energy, medium Velcro dog.
Marti’s ideal home includes people who have the time and patience to work with her as she continues to grow emotionally, gain more confidence and become the best dog ever. At least one other friendly, gentle dog and a fenced yard are required. Visiting children are fine. If Marti sounds like your next best friend, please contact her owner at email@example.com. Marti lives in Alexandria, VA.
