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
Tassie- ADOPTION PENDING is a 3 yr old, 36lb Black Bi female. Shes a sweet, shy girl. We are getting to know her. Tassie will be going through heartworm treatment soon so not available at this time. Fostered in Brandon, FL   NS2985


Hello Link, welcome to New Spirit!

We don't know much about this handsome black tri boy, he came into the shelter as a stray. Link was micro chipped, owner was contacted, sadly they gave him away and didn't want him back. We've been told he's 3 yrs old, he's thin at around 36lbs (needs to gain at least 10lbs) and had some fur missing, probably from fleas. Link looks to be an Aussie x Border Collie?? Has a long beautiful tail. 

So far Link has been a nice boy, loves to lay on your lap. He is a little anxious in the house but doing better, probably hasn't been allowed in much. He needs some manners and training - he's a quick study and will come along quickly. He does well with the other dogs in the home.
He's new to us so we are getting to know him....will have more info once we get to know him better. 

 Fostered in Thonotasassa, FL

Twixie  Twixie is about 3 years old and taken in as a stray on NC. We can't imagine why she wasn't reclaimed except she is heartworm positive and intact. Well we will solve these issues. Meanwhile, she is the cuddliest pup ever. A born kisser but might also be a counter surfer. She will be available for adoption before July.  Fostered in Edgefield,  SC  NS4026
