Vivi ~ Adopted!

IMG_0666Vivi is an 8 month old female tricolor collie who comes to us after major life changes have left her owner  unable to keep her. Vivi is already a big girl at 8 months so if you are looking for a larger size collie, she’s your girl! She is spayed and up to date on shots

IMG_0621Vivi is full of energy and loves to run and play. She will need a home which can provide her ample opportunity to exercise. She would be a great running buddy! She does get along with other dogs and cats but occasionally needs to be reminded  not to herd the smaller animals (she is a collie after all, and herding is in her blood). She would do well with another medium to large sized playmate and really enjoys bouncing and tussling.

IMG_0619Vivi is use to being crated when being left at home  and is house broken. She is very smart and with a little patience she learns quickly.

If you are interested in learning more about Vivi and beign considered as a potential adopter please read Our Adoption Process  and answer the questions presented in the article. Email answers to Adopt.TheDogLiberator@gmail.com

3/10/16 Update:
Jackson was adopted! Mark lives on a large ranch, and is an experienced Border Collie dad. Yay, Jackson!

12571403_10207519049949806_556847701_nPast: Jackson is returning to us due to hard times, (which consists of illness, job loss, job change and a move). He walks well on a leash and is great with guys. He is a little shy of ladies but warms up after about an hour. He just needs to build trust. He is still shy of other dogs and we are determining if he would do best as an only dog.

History (Jackson Formerly Guinness):

Guinness is a stunning red/white border collie from Miami Dade County. He is approximately a year old and was rescued from Miami Dade Animal Services. He was found as a stray and was never claimed. This beautiful boy has a gorgeous coat and stunning eyes. On his kennel card at MDAS it stated “this boy can actually smile” and his intake picture is proof of it. He is active but not high drive. He loves to play but also loves to sit on your lap. He does well with both men and women.

He is fearful of other dogs and mainly tries to avoid them. He would do best in a home where he is the only dog.

He is very smart and knows how to sit and give his paw. He is potty trained, walks great on a leash and sleeps quietly in his bed all night.

He is neutered, heartworm negative, microchipped and up to date on his shots. Guinness is a loving young boy looking for his forever home.

You can see more photos of this gorgeous boy on Facebook.

IMG_702322Sarah’s take on Tootsie:

During my visit to Florida for the TDL Reunion I had the opportunity to meet Tootsie. She is a beautiful Chihuahua with the most amazingly sweet eyes. When I walked in, she was scared. Tootsie hasn’t been socialized much, and she is initially afraid of anything new. She has already adjusted life in the TDL pack and grown comfortable, looking to Pink and Rosie for guidance at times when she is unsure.

IMG_7025Initially would not walk near me, she barked, paced, and ran away. Night one she only approached me when the whole pack was getting cookies and she took one nibble and ran. In the morning Gisele put her on a leash and I walked her around. She is still adjusting to wearing a leash but adapted well and after a few minutes she barely noticed it. I took her outside in the yard to give her an incentive to like the leash. I sat down in a chair and offered her treats to come closer, sometimes with small leash cues, sometimes on her own. No sudden movements, low gentle voice, even my words were slow. She needs calm energy, and to know what is happening. Then when she would put her paws on my thigh to get a treat, I slowly moved to the floor and set the treats further across my legs so she had to walk on me to get it.IMG_7009

I practiced putting an empty hand out, and holding a treat in the other so she would have to brush past my hand to get the food, initiating touch. We worked for probably 30 minutes, and it ended with her coming up with no leash tension and standing on my leg (hind legs on the ground). She would not let me touch her body bellow her head but would let me touch her ears. You have to move slowly, slowly, and let her see that you plan to touch her and where. Surprise will make her flee, and moving too fast will scare her. It is the unknown that sets off her anxiety.

IMG_7032
We resumed later that day when I sat in Gisele’s spot on the couch. No cookies, but she did hop up and sit with me. She wants affection, she just needs to know she can trust, and that you will respect her. At one point I did move too quickly and scared her. I would expect a fearful dog to bite me, but she nose bopped me instead. I think this shows her desire to trust you. By the end of the evening she was sitting on my lap, getting a massage and if I patted my chest she would come closer and even kissed me. After just a day and a half and she was on my lap, giving kisses. It is possible but you must go slow and show her “I don’t want to hurt you, I want to cuddle and give you nice things.” She will accept.

The morning that I left Florida, I sat on the other couch and shared bits of my toast with the pack. Slowly, slowly Tootsie joined the fun, and when Rosie moved off of my lap she hopped up and curled up. The real gem of the day was when Gisele’s son Ryan came home. Tootsie had previously seemed to show more fear toward men than women. Not today. She allowed him to sit on the couch beside her, and slowly reach over and pet her. No sign of fear. Tootsie is learning bravery and trust, and is letting her amazing heart shine through.IMG_7068You may be wondering, why is all this worth it? Why would I want to deal with a skittish dog? What is the payoff? She is the payoff. You get Tootsie, a good girl who loves to cuddle and kiss. She is alert and will let you know if something is amiss in the house or outside. She is good with other dogs and would love to be your best little buddy. It doesn’t take long to build trust with her and she is worth every moment of it.IMG_7033

Macaroon ~ Adopted!

They look like cavalier king charles spaniels but are too large. Some see Saint Bernard but they are too small. Some insist that they are Bermese Mountain Dogs…. still to small. They only thing we agree on is Border Collie mix, especially with their white tipped tails!
