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' Story
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.  As of early 2010, he is still going strong!  Every day is now Siggin's day thanks to people who cared.   His story is the essence of rescue.

Sandy is a female aussie mix who is in need of a new home.  She and her litter mate brother have been raised together for the past 2 1/2 years and her family is in need of finding both of them a home.  Family dynamics have changed and these two dogs need to be placed in separate homes.

Sandy is spayed and ready to move! She weighs about 35 pounds and travels with a crate, pen and dog house if her new home needs any of these items. She is a medium energy dog and knows some basic commands like "sit," "down" and "ring the bell" (to go outside).  

Being raised with her litter mate has probably not been the best in the long run as together they have chased other dogs and tend to be reactive around other animals.  This is why finding each a new home is the goal of the owners.

Sandy is good with children and adults, although she gets excited when she meets new people.

Meet Maverick...a cute aussie mix who has been raised with his litter mate, Sandy, in Kentucky.  He has had a great first 2 1/2 years playing with his sibling and his family; but as the needs of both dogs and their family have evolved, the family has decided that both Maverick and his sister need new homes.

They love to play but need more exercise than the family is able to provide and it is not fair to just let both dogs out in the yard to exercise each other.  While fun it can also make them a bonded pair and they will only play well with each other if not given the right environment. For this reason both Maverick and his sister would do better in separate homes.

Maverick is good with children and women as well as other pets if supervised - though he has not been around many other pets besides his sister. He knows simple commands like "sit," "down" and "ring the bell (to go out!). He needs more training.  He does jump up on people, and is reactive to other animals.  

Fully vetted and up to date on rabies (Jan 2018) Maverick is looking for a great home. He weighs about 37 pounds and is a medium size male. He has been on heartworm preventative throughout his life.  He doesn't bark much and loves to play.  His present family wants the best life for him, one that they cannot give at this time. Maverick also has a doghouse, pen and crate that come with him, FREE!
