Andromeda ~ Adopted!

This spunky little girl is quite the diva! She loves to be outside and with people that way she can be the center of attention at all times. She is the smartest little girl around and is eager to find her forever home! Andromeda loves to explore, but more importantly she wants to be with you!

If you are interested in this little girl, email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com!

Nebula ~ Adopted!

This little boy loves to explore, but always loves to return to home base. He is quiet and sweet, but oh so cuddly! Nebula’s favorite past-time is to run around the back yard and to find hidden toys around every corner. This little boy just lives to please and explore. Check out his photo album on Facebook to see more of this little guy!

FlapJack ~Adopted!

FlapJack (shown here with his best friend Mulaney) is a seven month old Pomeranian/ German Spitz who loves playtime more than anything. He is a spunky little boy who loves to make friends and steal hearts wherever he goes. Especially, since he is only seven pounds or so and oh so fluffy!

He is currently perfecting a few commands and finishing up his house-breaking training, but he is such a quick learner and so eager to please that it shouldn’t take long at all! As long as he can play, FlapJack is happy! This little guy loves his friends so much, he needs a home with at least one other dog so he always has someone to play with. If you are interested in this little heart-stealer, email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com

John Mulaney~ Adopted!

 

Named after the comedian himself, John Mulaney the puppy will keep you laughing and smiling all day long with his constant energy and love of life. An energetic puppy, Mulaney loves to run around outside with at least one more dog and loves to “herd” water from a hose. Though due to his age (around 4-5 months), he is still anxious in new places and hesitant to make new friends, but have no fear, it doesn’t take long for him to adjust. Also, puppy training classes are a must! He has a lot of pent up puppy energy and needs to learn how to redirect it in order to be the perfect friend for little children (ie. no jumping on the rambunctious toddlers).

 

 

 

 

When it comes to the end of the day, Mulaney loves to cuddle on the bed or the couch and nestle under the blankets. He is a total lover boy and a real sweetheart. If you want to learn more about this sweet baby boy, email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com!

Helios~ Adopted!

 Helios is back with us at The DogLiberator! This little puppy is a lot bigger than we remember him being, but that doesn’t mean he is any less stinkin’ cute! He may have grown up in size, but he is still all puppy. He loves to run around the backyard and play with the pack almost as much as he loves to be a cuddle bug.  More photos of him will follow soon, if he ever slows down for us to take some that is!
If you are interested in adopting this big baby boy, let us know! Email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com!

 

History:

Helios is a bouncing baby boy who is always down for playtime, but also cuddles. He may be the biggest boy around, but that just means he is all the more lovable! He is roughly 2 months old and is a German Shepherd/ Collie mix. He loves to talk and play just as much as he loves to cuddle! Check out his Facebook album here  and email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com to learn more!

 

 

Aphrodite ~ Adopted!

Another stowaway here at The DogLiberator! Aphrodite is the biggest pup of them all and a Great Pyrenees girl, but that just means there is more to love! She loves to cuddle and will do whatever she can to please. Her favorite place to be is right by your side! If you are interested in this little beauty, email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com or check out her Facebook album here for more cute pictures!

 

Update: Aphrodite has been adopted by Alvin and Angelina!

Hercules ~ Adopted!

Just like the Greek hero, our little Hercules is a brave little man who loves to run and play. He is quite talkative and loves to let you know what is on his mind. Though, he will never turn down cuddle time! See more of this cute little hero on his Facebook album here and email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com to learn more!

Update: Hercules loves to play in water! His favorite thing to do outside is to splash around in his water bowl! Is this an Olympic Swimmer pup we see on the rise? Who knows?

Apollo ~ Adopted!

Apollo isn’t as brave as the others, but that doesn’t stop him from trying. Once he gets in your arms, there is no place he would rather be. He loves to just lounge in the shade and enjoy being outside, rather than run around and get hot like his twin sister Artemis. If you want to learn more about this cute little cuddle bug, email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com and visit his Facebook album here!

Update: Apollo is starting to come out of his shell! He loves to talk to us whenever he is excited to go outside and isn’t afraid to jump into the fray with his siblings!

 

Update: Apollo has been adopted by Holly of Deland!

Hera ~ Adopted!

Hera is here and loves to make sure everyone knows it! She is a charismatic little lady who loves to play around and eat snacks in the sun. She has quite the adventurous spirit to her, but loves to be right by your side. Has she stolen your heart yet? See more of Hera on her Facebook album here and if you would like to learn more please email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com!

 

 

 

Update: Hera has been adopted by Alyssa of Orlando! We hope this spunky little girl brings you as much joy as she did us!

 

 

Artemis ~ Adopted!

This girl would rather be out playing hide and seek with her siblings (especially her twin brother Apollo) then getting her picture taken! A true go getter, Artemis never wants to stay still long. She is the first one to start play time and loves to just go, go, go. See more of this little gem on her Facebook album here!  If you want to learn more email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com!

 

 

Update: Artemis has been adopted by Kirk and Katee of Orlando!

 

 

Hermes ~ Adopted!

Don’t let his little size fool you, this puggle may have snuck in to The DogLiberator with a bunch of bigger pups, but he doesn’t let that keep him down! He has a personality that shines through and is as big as his heart! He is fearless, loving and absolutely stinkin’ cute! If you want to learn more about this little bundle of joy, check out his Facebook album here or email us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com!

 

 

 

Update: Hermes has been adopted by Elise and Gareth of Orlando!

 

Sugar Bug~Available!

Meet Sugar Bug, the lovable 4 year old, pure white Aussie girl! She is visually impaired and a deafie, but doesn’t let that let that stop her. She loves to chase the ball and cuddle with anyone! Her love knows no bounds and she is happiest when cuddling with someone on the couch.

Sugar Bug would be best as the only dog in a household since she wants any and all attention on her. She is a quick learner and has already picked up on several of our hand signals here at the rescue.

For more information about adopting Sugar Bug, feel free to contact us at adopt.thedogliberator@gmail.com

Treasure~Adopted!

A true find like her name implies, Treasure shines like silver and has a heart of gold! Never one to follow status quo, Treasure strikes out on her own for adventure, glory and gold! This little pirate girl loves to add things to her collection of “booty” such as her siblings collars and forgotten toys.

Check out her Photos on Facebook!

Canine Connect: Xassy

  BORDER COLLIE ALERT! We’ve agreed to help find the perfect home for this beautiful girl. She will need to be an “only child” in a home without children or small animals. Xassy has a strong herding drive and would be a great frisbee or agility dog. She is located in Melbourne, FL.  Check out her Photo Album

“Hello, We are trying to find a perfect forever home for my parents’ dog, Xassy (pronounced Zassy). Xassy is a 7 year old purebred border collie from Lock Eye. She is the perfect dog for an only dog family, but should not be placed in a family with other dogs. Xassy is my parents’ dog and they are not able to give her the activity she needs. For health reasons, my parents have had to move in with me and my family (my father is awaiting a kidney transplant and my mother is in a wheelchair and suffers from lupus) .

Xassy does not get along with my family’s St. Bernard- we have tried many options and have had to start alternating which dog is loose in our home. It is breaking my heart to see a border collie in a kennel so much, and my family and dog are miserable having to separate our girl to keep her safe. Xassy is amazing with people. ALL PEOPLE. She is wonderful with children, well trained, phenomenal with a frisbee, and will play fetch all day.

Xassy did not get along with my parents previous dog either. The have tried trainers and a behaviorist as well. She is a wonderful gentle animal with people and will truly win the heart of a family that does not have another dog. I just want the dogs to have happy healthy lives. My father asked my to find a better home for Xassy, so this is all being done at his request with his knowledge. Xassy has never been abused or had a harmful experience. She has always received excellent medical care. She has never bitten any person. Please help me find a home for her.”

If you’d like to be considered for Xassy, please go here to learn all about our adoption process. We don’t use a traditional application, but we would like you to answer a few questions so we can get to know you better: Our Adoption Process

How to Adopt From Us

Logan the Puppy and the Twins

Logan the Puppy and the Twins

Much to the surprise of many people, we do not use an online adoption application.  Instead, we rely on getting to know you by asking you a few questions in an email, and telephone interview.

Because we are a small rescue and keep all of our dogs in foster homes, we shy away from forms that tend to emphasis why someone should not have a dog. The interview process allows us to learn more about our potential adopters and their individual situations, concerns, pros and cons.

By knowing more details, we are able to place dogs into homes that other rescues might turn down, because we already know our dogs. We’re small so we don’t need blanket policies that require fences or disallow families with small children or won’t allow senior citizens. We’re focused on bringing together caring people with the right dog.

Whether you are considering an adult dog or a puppy, the first thing you should do is read our article on Starting Your Dog Out Right. Here you will find not only some good tips but some thoughts to ponder before committing to the responsibilities of caring for a dog.

If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs or learning more about it, please e-mail us at Adopt.TheDogLiberator@gmail.com and let’s get the process going! Share information including:

Your Name
Phone Number
Address including county and zip code
Whether this is a house, apartment, condo, etc
If you rent, do you have landlord approval?
Your household composition
Current and/or past pets
Your normal work schedule
How much time the dog will be alone?
What your yard is like, and do you have a fence and/or pool?
What are you looking for in a dog?
Do you have an exercise plan?
What is your contingency plan if you are no longer able to care for your dog?
Have you or anyone in your family ever been bitten/traumatized by a dog in the past?
Is there anyone in your family, circle of friends, or anyone who lives with you that can decide if you can have a dog in your home?
If you are approved to adopt during your meet, are you ready to bring your new dog home?

We will review your email and and then we’ll go from there! The more you share the better!

Here’s an email I received this morning about other rescues’ adoption applications:

Dear Gisele,

Thanks so much for the wonderful site and information you have. My wife and I have been looking for a dog for a few months now to join our family. To say the least it has been a discouraging process. The only places I have looked are petfinder.com and the local pound.

Well, at the local pound you just never know what kind of dog, temperament, and so on you will get. With the adoption groups on petfinder I’ve found that the process has been more of an interrogation than an application. I love what you wrote on your web site when you said: We’re focused on bringing together caring people with the right dog. Thanks for a breath of fresh air. You seem very reasonable and don’t have a laundry list of questions like, “who will brush the dog in the family and how ofter?” No kidding, that was one of the questions on an application I started to fill out as I shook my head in disbelief.  ~John
