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.

Justice, the Smooth Coat Border Collie~in Georgia

Justice comes to us from Georgia. He was rescued after our wonderful Kathy Keith saw his Craiglist post to be re-homed.  Sadly, Justice’s original owner passed away from cancer and his family could no longer care for the dog.

Here’s Kathy’s description of Justice’s heartbreaking story:

A scholar and a gentleman!

“He has a sad story. His original owner was Kristi’s uncle, who died about a year ago from cancer. He lost his joy when his owner died and hasn’t been able to find it with Kristi and her family. Plus, apparently he has a high activity level that they can’t meet. He wants to herd her chickens and cats. Sounds like the usual reason people want to get rid of border collies. It was so sad when she was telling me the story; she said the sparkle went out of his eye and it hasn’t come back.”

We’re sure we can help put the “sparkle” back in Justice’s eye. It just takes a little love and understanding and the perfect forever home. This boy misses his dad and would love to have a man to pal around with — he’s a guy’s guy, after all! — but an active family would suit him as well.

Justice has been described as a potential agility dog. We’ll find out more about him when Kathy arrives and fills us in with more details. That’s right — Kathy Keith is bringing this wonderful boy to the reunion on Saturday! Please stop in and say “hi”!

That sure is a funny looking dog!

Update: Just sharing; this Justice boy is awesome!! He is working well with my cats, and is just a joy to be around. Plus, he is totally onboard with Andi Brown’s diet…..he is going to make an awesome pet for the perfect family! ~ Kathy

Justice update:  this dog is going to be one sweetheart for a single dog family.  He might do okay in a two dog family, but for sure not a 3 dog family.  He is very comfortable with kids, and while he is very active as far as hiking and playing in the yard, he is mostly a couch potato.  He wants to cuddle up and be spoiled

02/07/12 Foster Update:

WooHoo!!  Justice is a big boy now!!  The dogs rode with me to the store today and on a whim (and because the weather has been so great the past few days) I decided to drive down to the lake.  It was so nice when we got there that we decided it was too nice not to get out.  Out went all the dogs, including Justice, off leash!!  He had a great time playing in the water and smelling all the lake smells.  He didn’t swim today, but I’ll bet it won’t be long before he will!!  Sadly, I didn’t have my camera, but there will be another time for a picture…..  ~Kathy

10/4/12 Foster Update:  We learned that Justice had heartworm, but after several months of treatment, he has recovered and is available for adoption!  Woo Hoo!

04/23/13 Foster Update:  Justice was tested, and he is Heartworm NEGATIVE!  Woo Hoo indeed!

  1. Hi Gisele.

    I have been studying what kind of Dog I want and it’s going to be a mixed breed rescue dog from your rescue group. Why? because you’ve given that dog a new life and have taking the time to know each animal you rescue.
    With this at hand the dog you recommend to me is going to be my everything and I am going to get him certified service dog. Why ? Because I can take him everywhere. I am retired and he’s going to be my copilot when we are about. Everyone is going to know that mixed breeds that are rescued make excellent companionship and service dog for life. I am looking for a house now, if I get approved then I will be seeing you and your group soon. Who knows maybe jagger will be coming home to me.
    Many Blessings to your group.
    Oscar Perez Deltona, Florida
