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.

Can You Say Happy?

Sometimes I never hear back from an adopting family but usually, thank goodness, they send me updates. I post them on our Facebook page since so many people enjoy reading how the dogs are doing. It makes them smile.

Yesterday Boo, my last Teddy Bear Puppy , was adopted. I just received this e-mail from Vanessa. She is so happy, I just had to share it with everyone. This is one of the reasons I rescue ~ the sheer joy of matching the right family with the right dog!


I can’t thank you enough – as John has said about 100 times since yesterday – “she is perfect.” Not only has she done amazingly on the leash, but she has done all her business outside, is eating and drinking plenty and who knew… she LOVES our carpet. She’s had little interest in her kennel and chose to sleep with us instead. I was skeptical and was sure I’d wake up to wet warmth at some point, but she did amazing. She curled up next to my feet and was out within minutes. She stayed between John and I the entire night and didn’t rustle around or whine once. She did wake me up about five times coughing, but I’m going to call my vet first thing when they open and see when we can get her in.

She’s been astounding in the car, did great meeting Corona, John’s family’s dog, in a local park last night and has stopped all foot traffic walking within eyesight of her cute little body 🙂 Above and beyond everything, I’m so impressed with how well she listens and trusts. We have two flights of stairs leading to our apartment and she was apprehensive at first, but once I climbed them and told her to come, she did so without hesitation. Same thing with getting in and out of buildings, walking in new territory, getting out of the car, etc. The bond between her and I is more than I could have ever expected; I cherish her already and know this love will only grow as she does 🙂

John is a man obsessed – the cameras haven’t stopped rolling since they met. I’ve attached some of the highlights.

We’ve decided to name her Sadie, after the Beatles song and a song by singer Joanna Newsom (about a fluffy white dog). As a bonus, it also means “Princess” which with her affinity for dirt and grass, I think is wonderfully funny.

Thanks again and good luck with all the others! Everything you (and Hope) have done to get her to where she was made this dream a reality; I’m eternally grateful and will surely keep in touch!
