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.

Brody, the Lover Boy~Adopted

Brody, the Lover Boy~Adopted

Brody is a soft coated Cattle Dog/Aussie mix that came to us in May 2011 needing to regain his puppy confidence. He was happy, but often appeared blue and was overly submissive. Through constant obedience training and lots of love, he has transformed over the last year and a half- overcoming severe separation anxiety- into a confident, cheery young pup. Unlike a regular Cattle Dog, Brody is content to spend lots of time indoors with his people, staying close to keep them company. He will run, on occasion, in full herding mode, but it’s short lived and he’s ready to come back inside and lounge around. Perhaps he just loves the A/C!

A perfect companion, Brody loves long car rides, doesn’t pull when walked on a leash, and has learned important commands such as sit, wait, park it, roll over, shake, and spin in a circle. Cattle dogs just love to learn and never forget a thing! Brody is fully house trained, never has an accident, and has been crate trained, but is not crated because he is so well behaved when left alone for a full work day. He does need to see outside – a low window or French door- so he can watch for his people and loves to have the radio on during the day. Just don’t leave pillows out- they are a tasty snack for him!

Pick Me!

Brody is very social with guests- cautious at first, but warms up after a few treats and some back scratches. He can be counted on to bark when hearing strange noises, alerting us to unknown visitors. Brody does like older children, but gets nervous around younger children- his ideal home is with children approximately age 10 and over, as we have seen him play with our family members this age on several occasions and he can’t get enough of their appetite for play time! Brody loves other animals- both cats and dogs and would love a house that has either or both. He is able to play well with our cats and dogs ranging from Labs to Chihuahuas.

You can see more photos of Brody on Facebook.

Brody is being fostered in Jacksonville, Florida.  If you are interested in meeting one of our dogs or learning more about it, please e-mail us at and let’s get the process going!

    1. Hi Vicki- He’s a little plump, lol. He’s about 70 lbs. We do feed him weight control formula food and try to entice him to run around more- but he’s not your typical Heeler- far less active than most. He really is a wonderful companion- always wanting to be around his people.
