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.

Fun at Sandy Paws!

We were invited to attend a Sandy Paws event, and we had a blast! There we got to see first hand this spectacular facility created for dogs to play and learn. This is an awesome place to take your dog to be properly socialized. The fact that it’s indoors is a real plus. The staff there were knowledgeable professionals, and were quick to help us, even when there was a little wee wee accident!

Sarah and Megan enjoyed winning some contests, but before I barely walked in the door, Carolyn Shoup was ready to meet Sparrow, whom she adopted and renamed Peanut!

After Sparrow was adopted, we set up shop, and noticed that someone had walked off with Gumbo, one of Holly’s puppies! A very nice young lady approached me and asked how to proceed to adopt Gumbo. I said, she’d have to talk to Gumbo’s foster. The lady replied, “oh, you mean Holly?”

Well I knew then that this little boy was going home TODAY! It was Joleen! Joleen had adopted one of Holly’s Teddy Bear pups a few months ago, she adopted Bear!

Joleen spoke with Holly over the phone briefly, and Gumbo’s adoption was completed!

Asia introduced herself to as many people as she could, however, there was one young lady at the event that spent quite a bit of time with Asia, I’m sorry I didn’t get her name. She wanted to bring Asia home SOOOO bad, but had to discuss it with her husband first. Asia did very well playing with the other dogs, and greeting strangers. This dog fears nothing!

I had the pleasure of meeting Jeniffer Grady for the first time, and seeing Janie Nelson again, what a treat! I didn’t know that Janie had also adopted one of Holly’s Teddy Bear Puppies.

When I asked Holly why I didn’t know what, she said, “Gisele, I’ve told you that over 70 times, but you have selective hearing!” In short, I’m losing my mind. Oh well! I loved the chance to FINALLY meet these Teddy Bear Puppies, knowing that they were rescued by Hope Master and Connie Rice from Georgia, it was a treat to see them full grown, fully socialized and playing together!

We also had the pleasure of seeing Sue McNulty, who displayed her spectacular artwork.

The highlight of my day was seeing Joey again. Jennifer, a volunteer for Aloma Jancy, fell in love with Joey, and brought him to the event for us! It was important for me to see first hand how badly Joey wanted to play with the other dogs, but he had no experience. Joey came across as a bully, but he’s really all puppy, and needs to learn some basic social skills. How was I supposed to know how fast his temperament would change after Kim nursed him back to health!!! So, I’ve made a decision to send Joey to Clearwater. Sarah White has been gracious to offer to transport Joey to “the farm” where Joey will play with Mark & Leslie’s pack, including the ever so handsome Kudos!

Special thanks to Megan, Sarah, and Olivia Frost who took some amazing photographs of the day.
