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.


Ready to Play!

I received this email from Elizabeth, about her Border Collie, Bobby:

Hello Gisele! 

I just wanted to ask you for help on finding a good home for a 1.5 year old Border Collie. 

He is beautiful, house trained, great with children and other dogs, neutered, microchipped, up to date in all his shots, knows how to come when called, sit and give his paw when asked. 

He just does not do well with being alone for extended periods of time (I just started graduate school and work, and am having to leave him alone for 14/15 hours at a time). He is getting very depressed, and I had him since he was 2 weeks old (needless to say, I had to do the whole bottle feeding every 3 hours, warm cloth in the butt for him to poop and all that not-so-fun stuff, so I’m very attached). I love him to death, but I know my dog and I know he is suffering. I don’t want to take him to a shelter, nor place him in a situation worse than what he has here (He is very well taken care of, but lonely), so I really wanted some help finding him a better place to live. Do you think you could help me? Or at least tell me where to turn?


Trained and Handsome!

After I spoke with Elizabeth over the phone, it was obvious that she’s doing what is best for her dog, and putting his needs first.  Bobby was originally from Kentucky.  Elizabeth met his breeder and his litter mates.  After the breeder told her she was going to put the litter down, she took the entire litter, re-homed them, and kept Bobby!  That’s one lucky dog, eh?

Bobby is located in Pompano Beach, Florida and he’s ready to have some fun with a family that has some time and love to share.  His photo album can be viewed on Facebook.

Adoption Update:  Bobby was adopted by Joe Crowley.  Joe saw him, emailed me, met him, and scooped him up.  I guess that’s one of the advantages of being a long-time TDL follower!  I can’t wait for updates.  Bobby Crowley will have a wonderful active life!
