Training and behavior tips by certified Service Dog trainers!

 Please note, each pooch has their own unique personality and we are not present to offer you quick guidance - tips are not guaranteed for success and is not a miracle, in other words: it does not work overnight, it takes time and commitment!

As a courtesy to all our adopters - We now have quick access to our certified dog trainers on live chat.

Welcome to New Leash on Life! (NLOL) Please pardon our dust as we work to improve the clarity and accessibility of our website.  The director (Carol Raymond) of NLOL and her family and friends would like to take the time to extend a warm welcome on behalf of the American Eskimo Dogs (Eskies) at our rescue shelter.  We hope you enjoy browsing through our site, you can also connect with us on Facebook on the left, and laugh along our photo album!  Keep in mind, there's more pages on "more" - check them out and we hope the Eskies can "take you to the mountains!"

Life is an awfully big adventure, especially with four furry paws and dressed all in white! Chances are you're on this site to offer a forever home (and a chance to offer an adventure) for one (or two) of our beloved Eskies and for that, we share our gratitude and thanks for considering adopting from our rescue shelter!

Our rescue is located in south Texas near San Antonio.  We mainly adopt and specialize in the breed "American Eskimo Dog", commonly called "Spitz" or "Eskie",  but due to the alarming trend in 'disposable dogs', we do have some other breeds and mixbreeds listed as well.  We work with many other rescues & the public to find the perfect forever home for ALL of our "Furry Friends!"

On this site you'll find information about our activities, pictures along with descriptions of our rescue dogs that are available for adoption and even provide beneficial behavioral and/or training advice (from a certified dog trainer too!) Please remember we are a rescue and not a facility, our dogs are living in our homes, learning to be the perfect doggie to live in your home.

We evaluate all of the dogs and do REQUIRE you to fill out an application (click for application) BEFORE scheduling an appointment to veiw our dogs.  This application helps us check which of our dogs have the same characteristics and winning personality that suits your family's needs.  We hope you will find all of the information you are looking for about our rescue dogs, but if not, please email us at or use our contact page and inquire, we promise we won't bite!
