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.


May I help you?

It’s been Four years since I rescued a girl named Izzy from the Florida Keys. Amazing, that this Izzy reminds me of her. She had everyone fooled. We all should know by now that dogs to not act the same in the pound as they do at home. Izzy was freaked, but as soon as she got adopted, she was an angel! Here’s our new Izzy! She is four years old and living in Orange Park, Florida.

Her owner writes: It is a very sad decision but we don’t feel we are the best home for Izzy anymore. She is a good girl that we love very much. She deserves to be in a home where she can be happy. We would be very appreciative if you could assist us in finding her he a good loving home that will meet her needs; she deserves better.

Can we Talk?

Izzy is showing signs of fear around her owner’s two-year old rambunctious and curious boy. While she does try to slink away, and avoid the toddler, and parents correct the boy, kids will be kids.

This is not a case where the dog is the problem, and the owners want to get rid of it, quite the opposite! Izzy is a wonderful dog, who is nervous and unsure about young children… sometimes I’m nervous and unsure around young children too!

What’s more important is when the toddler is corrected, Izzy lowers her head in fear, thinking it is her that is being scolded. Poor Izzy! She is very sensitive and very smart. She would probably enjoy being with older children, children that can reason, and learn to respect a dog’s space.

I can see you through the glass you know!

Izzy is very good with other dogs, but has never been tested with cats. Izzy was originally rescued from a shelter, and her current owners will not allow her to go back! They will foster her until we can do our job; find her a great home!

I remember, when we were fostering Shy Shannon, she would nip my daughter in the butt almost daily!  Shannon is still fearful of people!

You can see more photos of Izzy on Facebook.
