Spanky~Adopted

"Can we watch animal planet?"  ~ Spanky

Update:  The pups are eating now, and it’s time for them to see the vet.  They are still coughing.  We will have them examined and let the vet determine why.

You may have seen us last week begging for donations to rescue three collie pups from Athens, Alabama.  The shelter described them as a bag of bones, and even wondered if they would make it.

I love the ladies!

I love the ladies!

After a few failed transport attempts, they arrived thanks to hard working volunteers!  They are incredibly scared and wouldn’t eat for a few days, but they are eating now.  They are emaciated and they are coughing, so they won’t be ready for adoption… well, until they’re ready!  But we sure can follow their progress!

Spanky is the pup in the middle!  Not the runt, not the largest.  He is also the most social of the gang.  He enjoys affection and attention.  He is not coughing as much, and is eating well.  We will post more photo of them on Facebook shortly.

07/01/14 Update:  Thanks to Laura Burk for taking such good care of our two Athens pups, they are eating, and doing much better. They are not as terrified as they were, and love to be in your lap now!  You can see many recent photos of the boys on Facebook.

They were cleared from the Vet for now, they had shots to help build their strength, and on several medications. Cathy McIlroy will be fostering them for a while, until they can get their boosters and be neutered.

Spanky is Clearly a Collie, his black dot on the tail confirms that! They are very happy to see people, and are very social!

It’s going to take time for them to be totally healthy, and yes, your donations are greatly appreciated. If you can donate toward their care, please visit http://thedogliberator.com/virtual-foster/

07/01/14 Update:  Doesn’t he look like a grey wolf or coyote? He’s adorable, and very much a lap dog now!

Toby the Beagle~Adopted

TobyClearly not a Border Collie, this young boy was purchased from PetLand for a hefty price, and had a bit too much energy for his family.  He is good with dogs, kids, cats, and loves toys!

You can see his photos on Facebook!

Toby was adopted by the awesome folks at PePe and he will be trained as a professional bug dog!

Stinking Cute Pippin Puppies~Adopted

Due to the number of phone calls and emails we have received from shelters and pounds please be aware that Sam Mauldin no longer volunteers for The Dog Liberator. She can not pull, transport, or foster dogs for our rescue.

Paddington, Pick Me!

 

Paddington, the Pippin Puppy!

Paddington’s two littermates, Puddin’ and Pippin have been adopted. The runt of the litter, this little boy is waiting for his forever home!

History:

Stinking Cute Fluffy Pippin Puppies!

What’s a Pippin Puppy?  We’ve named this litter after Erin Pippin who was our only hope at getting them rescued.  These three adorable pups came from Hall County (Gainesville, GA).

Click here to see all of their photos on Facebook.

What are they?  I have no clue!  We have stared at their photos and I met them personally, and I still have no clue!  So I’ve named them the Stinking Cute Pippin Puppies!

Erin Pippin agreed to pull and foster these pups overnight, while Sam Mauldin drove from Gainesville, FL to Atlanta, GA and back!  I then drove from Deltona to Gainesville and brought them to puppy foster, Cathy McIlroy.  These pups must feel awfully special to have a private legged transport arranged just for them!  Cathy reports they are all healthy and doing fine!

If you are interested in adopting, please read Starting your Dog Out Right, and How to Adopt from us, and then email me at thedogliberator@gmail.com

Update:  Cathy reports they have all gained several pounds since they arrived!

Note:  Because of the known dangers when rescuing puppies, TDL has implemented a 10-14 day quarantine for all rescued puppies.  Not only is quarantine a new guideline, but transporting puppies must also be executed responsibly.  Exposing other dogs on a transport, the vehicles of volunteer transporters, including automobiles and private planes is not cool!  TDL is taking extra precaution when rescuing puppies.  These puppies have been under a 14 day quarantine and are now available for adoption!

Special Thanks to Hall County Animal Services for holding these puppies until we could arrange foster and transport.

Pippin was adopted on December 21st, 2011.

Pippin Adopted!

Cathy’s Snuggle Puppies~Adopted

Cathy's Snuggle Puppies

Last Friday, Jeff Bennett personally delivered three puppies from Chilton County’s Humane Society in Alabama. They are cute, healthy, affectionate and ready to find their new homes! Cathy reports how some shelter puppies are fearful and afraid of the human touch, but not these butterballs! They want to be held and cuddled, which is a great sign.

They are the vet right now, being vaccinated, spay/neutered and micro chipped. Dr. Oliver will evaluate them from head to toe and give us his opinion with regard to their breed identification.

Samson~Adopted

I just got off the phone with manager, Melissa, and she says Aussie! They have big paws, so they won’t be mini Aussies, that’s for sure. I suspect that they will hit the 45 – 55 pound mark when they are full grown.

As we have shared in the past, litter mates can have different fathers. When Holly saw these puppies, she reminisced about the M puppies, and the C puppies.

Snickers~Adopted

 

We will be providing updates as we get them, but in the meantime, I really want to share with you Cathy’s Snuggle Puppies!  Special thanks to Sarah White-Buxbaum for meeting the transport and taking these awesome photos for us!

Do I know what breed they are?  No, I have not DNA tested them, but I don’t need a DNA test kit to see that they are Stinkin’ Cute!  You can see more photos of Samson on his photo album on Facebook.  Click here to see Snicker’s photo album on Facebook.  Click here to see Sunbeam’s photo album on Facebook!

Coco Chanel~Adopted

Let's Cuddle!

This little Aussie came to us along with her litter mates, Stonewall Jackson and George Patten.  At first, a shelter employee suspected she was pregnant, so we let her hang out with us for a few weeks just to make sure.  Well, she isn’t!  And today, she at the vet being spayed and getting all of her shots.

We were going to call her Mamma Cocoa, but the name just doesn’t fit!

Special thanks to Aussie Rescue for recommending us to rescue this group, Jessica Hitchcock who drove to get them, and Cathy McIlroy for fostering.

Coco is very much about her people, while she tolerates other dogs, she could take them or leave them!  Her focus is getting affection and being a cuddle bug with her peeps!

Be sure to check out her photo album.  More about this gorgeous girl coming soon!

 

 

Jingle, Jangle and Jubilee, BC puppies all three! ~ Adopted!


What can I say about Jingle, Jangle and Jubilee? They are adorable!

Becky sent us an photo of a litter of Border Collie puppies in Alabama. Could we take them? Of course! We were all set up, their places were reserved in the vehicles leaving the next day when *cough* they developed kennel cough. Naturally! Kandy agreed to foster them (thank you Kandy) until they recovered.


Two weeks went by. The next transport was scheduled. Cars leaving Saturday morning. Then, lo and behold, Jeff Bennett of Pilots N Paws said that he was available to fly dogs this way. Whooppie! These puppies arrived in style! Flying the distance in a matter of a few short hours rather than one very long day, they arrived tails wagging.

They are so adorable. We estimate that they were born in mid-January. Jingle and Jangle are the boys. They have longer fur, looking almost like Papillons right now because they are so small (about 5 pounds). Jingle has more white on him, plus a touch of gold in his eyebrows and ears. Jangle looks like a classic rough-coat border collie white his white flash on the face and collar, plus socks and tail. Jubilee is the girl and looks like a smooth-coat Border Collie. In fact, she reminds me of my Splenda, both in looks and happy spirit.

I can’t tell Kandy just how much I appreciate her. These puppies have arrived here in wonderful condition, both physically and emotionally. That only happens when they have been cared for and loved by someone, and in this case I know that “someone” is Kandy. Now Cathy is caring for them in Winter Springs, and they couldn’t be in better hands.

Be sure to check out their photo album.

Now all that is missing is their forever homes. If you think that you might be interested in adopting one of these precious pups, please review our adoption process, then e-mail holly.thedogliberator@gmail.com .

New Year’s Puppies ~ Adopted


Our last transport of the year. We were contacted about a parcel of Border Collies that had been dumped by a breeder at an animal shelter in rural Georgia that euthanizes all of the animals every Wednesday. Yes, you read that right: ALL. Could we take them? We were so full but…..

That last transport included this beautiful litter of puppies. Their poor momma, Charlotte, had just about give her last measure taking care of them. She was emaciated, scared and coughing like crazy. At only 25 pounds, I can’t even imagine how she had continued to nurse 5 puppies ranging from 5 to 8 pounds! Concerned for her, we brought her into our vet and then sent her to fosters Mark and Leslie in Clearwater to be nursed back to health.

Her puppies went home to be fostered by the wonderful Cathy and her family in Oviedo. Cathy has years and years of experience in fostering puppies, and there couldn’t be a better place for this litter to rest. Four of them seemed fine, but little Theo had the same cough as his momma. Our vet told us that a terrible upper respiratory infection is going around this winter and to not take this lightly. Cathy immediately started Theo on some strong medications and separated him from the others for their health. Don’t worry ~ he’s had plenty of people lovin’ during his recovery. He’s perked back up and is anxious to join the fray again. The only tri-colored puppy he has a happy personality and always runs over to be picked up. Adoption Pending.

Marcel is the other boy in the litter. He looks like the Incredible Hulk because he is always hanging out with Brie, who is the smallest of the litter. His cream colored fur is very soft. A quiet boy, he likes to play tag . Adoption Pending

 

Kennedy has classic black and white Border Collie markings. The largest of the litter, she is very outgoing and friendly. She is going to be a pretty good sized dog since she has really big paws. Adoption Pending.

Freckles is so named because of the cute speckled markings on her nose. She is a tail wagger who loves to play and have fun. She is also has the shortest legs. What a doll! Adoption Pending.

You can see more photos of this litter of puppies on their Facebook photo album.

If you are considering one of these puppies for your family, please read about our adoption process and then e-mail holly.thedogliberator@gmail.com

January 27th Update on Marcel:
