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.



Great News!  Laura Leigh Hoening Burk has offered to drive BoBo from Lake City to me in Deltona, where he’ll hang out with my pack and my family until his Mom gets better.  BoBo’s adopter has faced multiple surgeries on her knee lately, and the amount of physical therapy she will need will be brutal.  I can’t wait to see BoBo again, and we’ll get him back home when his Mom is better…. BoBo is an amazing therapy dog!  Thank you so much Laura!

I’m taking a lot of  photos of BoBo while he’s hanging out with TDL to share with his Mom, Sherilyn who is in the hospital.  We need a lot of prayers for her surgery today.  BoBo’s photos can be seen on Facebook. 

BoBo with the pack



BoBo lives in Lake City, he was adopted last year.  Unfortunately, his owner has been in the hospital now for three weeks, and she is facing another surgery.  Although BoBo has someone checking on him every day, and he has a doggie door, his owner is worried that he will get lonely.  BoBo is an awesome dog, I fostered him for a while, and fell in in love with him.  He’s a very good boy, great with kids and other dogs.  He was formerly known as Tater.

You can see more photos of BoBo on Facebook.

If you live in Lake City, have a fenced in yard, and can take care of BoBo for us, for just a few weeks while his owner recovers, please email me at


One thought on “BoBo

  1. I have been searching for another “best friend” after losing Smiley, my samoyed/retriever mix to old age last year. (15 years). I want another large dog-85-100 lbs., but the large, pet rescue folks seem to have everything clear across the state. I’m new to Florida and not much of a driver. I am in DeLand, have a fenced yard, and this will be in indoor, companion dog.Before Smiley, I had Luther, and Old English sheep dog for 12 years, so you see, I am truly a dog-mom.I took early retirement in June, hence the move to Florida, so the dog would not be left alone during the day.

    Your site seems to be mostly smaller breeds, but if you run across news of a larger one, less than two years old (my heart can’t bear to lose another one right now; and for the same reason, I don’t want to foster) could you please let me know?

    Bless you and lots of pupkisses for the heartfelt work you do!
