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.


What a smile!

Sheldon is a four year-old purebred Dachshund.  He is a tiny little guy, with a lot of expression.  He is at Newman Veterinary Center right now being checked out!  He will get all of his shots, microchip and he has been neutered.  Sheldon is a very intelligent dog, he is very aware of his surroundings.  He is happy dog but serious at the same time!  He is also a bit needy.  I can’t blame him considering he his been separated from his owners.


Sheldon is a product of a breakup in a relationship.  He doesn’t understand why he was cast out.  He was very loved by his man owner, but his owner’s job requires extensive travel-not a good life for homebody Sheldon.  His woman owner did not want to keep him.  A good Samaritan stepped in and grabbed Sheldon before he was headed to the pound.  Which is not a good place for such a serious little man!

Sheldon is great with kids, other dogs, and all people.  He has NOT been tested with cats yet.  He is very interested in lizards!  Sheldon is housebroken, and I’m sure he knows many commands!  We will provide updates as soon as we learn more about him.  You can see more photos of Sheldon on Facebook.

Looks a bit sad, eh?

May 2, 2013 Update:
I am learning more and more about Sheldon everyday. While he doesn’t hate the company of children he would much rather be accompanied by adults or older children maybe teenagers. You can see in his photo’s he doesn’t turn down a good belly rub or bacon treat, even if it means the kids have to love on him first! He is the definition of LAP DOG! He will sit in your lap for hours if you let him.

Sheldon has free roam in the house with no apparent flaws. He does retreat back to his crate to sleep. Oh yeah! he is crate trained too. Only a few whines here and there now he is getting used to the new surroundings. I don’t believe he EVER missed a meal, maybe even stole a few extra’s here and there judging by his weight 18.5 pounds! What a chunky boy! He is currently on antibiotics due to an allergy, possible food. I have switched his food to something less prone to an allergic reaction. We will give him a few days on the medication and see if there is any improvement.

Loves to Travel!

I would describe Sheldon’s perfect home as a quiet home where he could spend his days curled up on a pillow or in his humans lap. Someone with occasional children or older teenage children to love him. He loves to go for car rides and will even jump in. Yeah, yeah! I know he has no legs you say. I have an expedition that is extra tall =) and he jumps right in!
