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.

Here’s a twist!  I would love to pull this dog from Citrus County (near Ocala).  But, unfortunately we are full at the moment.  I spoke with Mike yesterday, a shelter volunteer, and I had an idea.  Why not publicize this dog, who is available for adoption, and hope that we can find a match!

Romeo is a six year old Aussie, Golden, Great Pyrenees and/or Collie mix!  We really don’t know what breed he is, but he is stunning and could be a combination of any of these breeds.  I bet if you ask a dozen people to identify his breed, you might get a dozen answers!  He is estimated to be about 73 pounds.

Romeo was surrendered to the pound by relatives of the man who owned him.  His owner was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident recently.  Romeo and the cat were both surrendered.  Here’s what we know:

The shelter is making Romeo very nervous.  He has not been exposed to new things, he probably spent his entire life at home, where he belonged, and doesn’t know what’s happening to him.

Mike said yesterday, “Every car that drives up… he checks it to see if that’s his owner coming back.  Every person that walks in, he’s looking to see if it’s him.  He’s a very smart dog, and he’s lost.”

I’ve seen this before in the dogs that we have rescued.  Especially, Jake.  Jake sat and watched through the fence, waiting for his people to come and get him… it broke my heart.

We know he’s good with cats.

He is slowly being introduced to other dogs.

Romeo needs to be approached slowly, because he is a bit fearful.  He doesn’t need chaos or any sudden movements – so no small children please!

Romeo would prefer to be home with an older couple, and he probably would thrive on routine.

When he was first walked on a leash, he shut down (we’ve seen that before) but now he is more open to walking on leash, and doing much better.

Rome is up-to-date on shots, neutered… the works!  All he needs now is for you to take the time to go meet him and talk to the shelter about adopting him.
