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.

Jedi, the Sheltie/Border-Adopted

Jedi is a very gorgeous and well-mannered dog. He is not hyper, is social with other dogs, and very intelligent. Until he is fully evaluated and temperament tested we will not recommend that he be adopted with a family that has very young children. In the meantime, I see no aggression issues with him whatsoever.
Jedi knows to sit, shake, give kisses, and is crate trained. He loves to look out the window, and is doing very well with my pack, especially Lady Di!

Update: Jedi is finished here at Border Collie Boot Camp! He loves kids, gives kisses, jumps up with joy, and is great with the pack. His favorite thing is to go for car rides. Jedi has found his joy, and has learned how to be part of a team, and more importantly part of a family. All he needed was a little bit of time here. He’s going to make someone an awesome dog!

He knows all of his commands, and is crate-trained on a dime. However, he is not very fond of cats yet!

Foster Update, Jesse writes on Facebook:

As for Jedi, he’s only been here two days, and he’s a perfect gent… a really handsome guy, and could easily get a CGC certification right now!

Jedi’s excellent on leash, and is very focused. When prompted he enjoys going through the 10 skills needed to pass the AKC CGC Test. I haven’t stacked them all together yet, but I do plan on it.

#1: Acccepting a friendly stranger
#2: Sitting politely for petting
#3: Appearance and grooming… See More
#4: Out for a walk- on a loose leash
#5: Walking through a croud
#6: Sit and down on command and Staying in place
#7: Coming when called
#8: Reaction to another dog
#9: Reaction to distraction
#10: Supervised seperation

06/13/10 Update: Jedi has been adopted! Jon & Nancy Schingledecker have picked him up from Jesse’s and brought him to me to finalize the adoption. I can’t wait for updates!

  1. Jedi slept with my Sarah last night. He can sit, shake, stay, loves to go for car rides, he doesn't care for cats, he and Lady Di made nice finally, after a couple of Ah-Ahes. He's a great dog. He walks with me where ever I go. He's not a jumpy in-your-face dog, not really a cuddle bug, but a real joy!
