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.

A Message from Reenie:

“Howdy folks. I know I don’t make much noise, and I’m not a needy girl, but enough is enough. I’ve been in rescue for several months now, and I’ve been a really good girl. The people who have fostered me have taught me so much, but I think it’s time I move on. The holidays are just days away, and I kind of feel left behind. I don’t want to raise a ruckus but what does it take for a girl to be noticed? I may not have long silky hair, or blue eyes, but I am gorgeous in my own way. I don’t know anything about Black Dog Syndrome, but I hear people talking about it. Anyway, thanks for listening, and please, if you can help me find a home for the holidays, I’ll be much obliged. ~Reenie

When she looks you in the eye, it feels like she’s looking deep into your soul.  She has an incredible presence that just can’t be captured in pictures or videos. 

Reenie would be happiest in a home with a fenced in yard where she can run and chase toys.   She needs regular exercise and room to run, but she also needs a human companion to play with her (tennis balls are her favorite) and provide minimal supervision during outside time.

She’ll also make a great jogging partner.   Reenie would love to be adopted by a family with other dogs, cats, or kids.  She has lived with other dogs, cats, and an infant.  When play time is over, she can usually be found lying quietly at someone’s feet, rolling over now and then for a tummy rub.

Visions of sugarplums dancing….

Reenie handles new situations and people with ease, is crate/potty trained, and knows basic commands (sit, stay, down), and she appears to be quite a quick study.  She would be a great pet for someone who is looking for an active companion that’s already house and crate trained.  Her photo album can be viewed on Facebook.

Reenie is about 2 years of age, she is heartworm negative now!

12/14/12 Foster Update:

Hi Gisele –

I wanted to give you an update on Reenie and get you a couple new photos.  Looking through her vet records today, I realized she is very close to reaching one year in foster care.  What an awful milestone to reach.  I feel like I’ve failed her.  We’ve tried everything we can think of to promote her; our friends and neighbors have tried to help too.  Because she’s fine with kids, dogs, and cats, housetrained, etc, I was sure she’d be adopted if she could just meet a few new people.  Everyone who meets her loves her – vet techs, neighbors, friends, the trainer, the pet sitter.  I know she doesn’t look a lot like a Border Collie at first glance, but I can see it in the way she moves.  She’s so graceful, and ridiculously smart.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed that she’ll get a real home for Christmas where she gets the love and attention she deserves.  ~Nicole
