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.

One Little Indian, the Border Collie-Adopted

When Holly and I first saw Indian’s stunning photo, we both wanted him. I called the shelter, and there was no euthanasia date set, but I indicated I would take him on January 31st.

The shelter was very gracious, giving me a few days while I tried to arrange transport, however, when February 3rd came, his situation became critical. The shelter was full, and so was the boarding facility. The shelter found a vet’s office that would board him for me. On Friday morning, he was transported to the vet.

Note: Indian was adopted several months ago, by an older couple. They returned him to the pound, indicating that he chases cars. All of the transporters did confirm he does have an issue with cars.

Sandra Nathan was there just a few hours later, picked up from the vet, and transport began. Terry Watts drove for hours to meet Sandra, and Indian had a sleep over at her place.

There we learned that Indian cowers a bit, is slow to warm up to strangers, is great with other dogs, and ignores cats! Wow, what great news.

Since the transport was a bit early (since when does that ever happen) Jenna was gracious to let Indian hang out and chill at her house for an hour. Judging by her video, it looks like he enjoyed the much needed break.

It’s 5:38, and Mark Whalen has just sent me a text tell me that Indian has reached his foster home, and checking out the other dogs, one of which is our KUDOS!

Can’t wait for Lynne Deal to meet this boy, and get more feedback from Mark.

Thank you everyone!

Mark confirms that Indian is playing and having a blast with the other dogs. Transporters confirmed he ignores cats. He will be kid-tested soon and updates galore are on the way.

Indian’s photos can be seen on his album on Facebook.

Special Thanks to Tiffany who held him for us for as long as possible. I appreciate your patience!

Indian’s Journey

Indian has been adopted by Sue Chrzan’s family! Wow! Three boys to play with? Can’t wait for updates!

  1. Just wanted to give a quick update on Indian – we call him Indy (I have boys, what can I say).

    He's such a good dog. It took a while for him to warm up to us, but then, look out – he's loving life.

    We took him for a walk, purchased a few toys and treats and he has rewarded us with some mighty tail wagging!

    Mark, thanks for keeping him until we could find our forever family member.
