The Dog Liberator™

The Dog Liberator rescues abandoned dogs throughout the Southeast. Based in Central Florida, this non-profit organization fosters all of their dogs in a home environment. Founded in 2009, all dogs are fully vetted, spayed or neutered prior to adoption. The Dog Liberator focuses in rescuing the herding breed, which consists of Border Collies, Shepherds, Sheepdogs, Aussies, Collies, and Deaf/Blind Dogs.

Our last rescue of the year was a group of Border Collies who had been dumped at a shelter in Georgia, several adults and a litter. Katie, a three-year-old, arrived ill so we did not have her spayed right away. By the time she was well again, it was apparent that she was pregnant. In stepped the wonderful Lynne, who offered to foster, whelp and care for Katie and, eventually, her puppies. At the end of January, the puppies were born, 9 lovely black and white wigglers. Sadly, one failed to thrive due to a cleft palate ~ heartbreaking. The remaining 8 grew into beautiful examples of all the Border Collie breed should be! They are truly lovely, 5 boys, 3 girls, all full of vim and vinegar!!! They will be ready to go to their forever homes Easter weekend. Today we will begin to take applications, and then after they are screened, Lynne will set up appointments. We will not be taking applications for specific puppies as we believe that, although you may fall in love with a photo and a description, the only sure-fire way of adopting the right puppy is to show up with an open heart, sit down on the floor with all of them and see who adopts you!

Given that Lynne is the owner of the Corner Bar and Grill in Largo, we thought it amusing to name the puppies after drinks. I asked Lynne to share with you just a bit about each of the puppies:



Asti (spumante) is a sweet girl, likes to go off alone and lay under the bed. She is very helpful also. When I get the paper towels to wash the floor where someone made a booboo, she HOPS HOPS HOPS on the towel like a bunny. She is my comic release after picking up poo.She is a gentle biter, and likes Old Mother Hubbard mini bones. She has one black spot on her belly and has traditional border collie markings.
