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.

Have Land? Will Travel!

We picked Rexie up in Miami on April 6th. A nice couple there pulled him from a kill shelter, but they were unable to keep him (they lived in a condo). Once we got him to Orlando, he was neutered and updated on all his shots. He developed some minor complications from the neuter (swelling and a little leakage from the incision), but after a couple of weeks of rest and relaxation, he’s all healed up.

Rexie is a sweet dog. He’s been very affectionate with my husband and me. He’s also extremely bright and full of energy. He loves to fetch a ball and to play Frisbee. Rex is VERY focused, with a strong herding and prey drive. I think he would make a great agility or fly ball dog. Because of his strong instincts, I wouldn’t recommend a house with small children or cats.

Wanna Play?

Rexie currently weighs 52 pounds, but I think his ideal weight is between 42-45 lbs. He’s being fed Solid Gold “Sun Dancer”, and he’s doing very well on it. No digestive issues at all!  He is just a little over 12 months of age, and was originally purchased by a breeder, and is a purebred Border Collie.

If you have a large yard, or a farm, and have the time for a motivated, intelligent, high drive Border Collie, Rexie is the dog for you. He has a ton of potential!

You can see many more photos of Rexie on Facebook.

More about Rexie:

Rexie is housebroken, and  is not at all destructive. He plays hard with his toys, but he does not chew on shoes, furniture, or rugs. He’s also housebroken, and since he’s been neutered, has stopped “marking” in the yard.
He does not bark excessively. However, he will alert you if anyone approaches your house.
What’s Next Boss?

He likes being brushed, and he doesn’t shed excessively.

He does need a bit more practice walking on a leash. He’s afraid of cars (which sure beats trying to chase them). He also needs to work on getting in and out of cars.
Rexie comes with a dog bed, some toys, and a stainless steel food and water dish. I will also throw in a small bag of Solid Gold “Sun Dancer”.
