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.

The Dog Liberator focuses in rescuing the herding breed, which consists of Border Collies, Shepherds, Sheepdogs, Aussies, Collies, and Deaf/Blind Dogs.

Crumpet the Speedy Puppy



Crumpet came to us from a kill shelter in Alabama as part of our major October rescue run. This pumpkin was in a small kennel with Cricket, an Australian Kelpie puppy that we also rescued. I was told that they are littermates, but if they are, they surely had different fathers (completely possible with dogs). Crumpet looks more like a shepherd mix puppy, with a wrinkle to her forehead that reminds me of a beagle. Whoever adopts her will have to send me photos so I can see what she looks like when she grows up!

We like to call Crumpet “Houdini”. She is so fast that one minute she is outside playing with the other puppies, the next she has slipped past our legs and is scampering around the house. She has a truly happy spirit to her, which always gives me joy in a dog that has come from a depressing kill shelter. Dogs are so resilient!

Like Cricket, Crumpet is very ball oriented (maybe they are littermates!) Unlike Cricket, Crumpet will cuddle when being held and not wiggle away. She is a very pretty little thing with a delightful personality. I just love my puppies!!!

You can see lots of photos of Crumpet in her photo album.

November 11 Update:

Crumpet has proven herself to be a delight. She loves to play and is extremely affectionate. But here is an unusual thing in a puppy ~ she will often walk into her crate and fall asleep on her fluffy dog bed. A puppy with an off switch! She is a joy and would be a good fit in almost any home!


November 23rd Update:

Crumpet lives to be loved! This little girl is so affectionate, the classic puppy. She is so curious, sticking her head into my files, climbing up onto the couch, even attempting to get inside the lampshade! It’s like she read the job description of a puppy and said, “I can do that!”

December 3rd Update:

Crumpet’s first night was great. She just LOVES her crate. I took her out this morning for about ten minutes and she wouldn’t pee so we came back inside. She pooped right by the door Haha. I think she is afraid of our grass, she doesn’t like to go on it. But she is just loved by everyone who meets her! Thanks so much.

December 8th Update:

Crumpet is doing so wonderful! Her hair is starting to grow back, all her scabs are gone. She is such a joy! She is doing much better with her potty training, and we are trying to get her out a lot so she can experience everything. Her first trip to the beach was hilarious, she didn’t want to leave the boardwalk. After a while her tail was back out and she was loving it! She was hesitant on walks at first, her tail tucked in for the first part and me dragging her most of the way. But once we turned around to go back home her tail comes out an she’s pulling us! She is faithful about getting up at 7 am, but once she goes to the bathroom, she climbs in bed with us, starting at Ramsey’s feet and army crawling under the covers until she finds her “spot” right between us. I took her to the vet the other day, she was a hit! Everyone who sees her just loves her. They said she was healthy, no worms, no mange, perfect! Shes on some more pills so she isnt so itchy, and more pills for her neck for one more week. All in all she fits in perfectly with us, always excited o see us and always happy! Thanks again so much, shes perfect!

Maggie, Ramsey, and Crumpet =)
