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.

Someone recently posted a comment on Facebook that read, “Adopting a TDL dog is like eating potato chips, you can’t have just one!” Lately, it’s true. The Wilson family have adopted three dogs from us, (Nitro, Fiona and Irwin) but lately Bill’s Father adopted Dundee and Bill’s Brother is in the process of adopting Delilah from us. Sam has her new trifecta consisting of Boomer, Charlie and Kai Kai.  The Spice Girls, Saffron and Sage adopted Kevin & Mel.  Recently, The Cowboys Doc & Wyatt adopted Cyndi and Rick.

Personally, I have always had two dogs. In the past, I would get a young pup when my dog is about six or seven years of age. However, today I own three dogs, not by design and not by choice. After we fostered China for so many months, the bond that existed between my daughter, Sarah and this special dog could not be broken.

Here’s a great article written by Kevin Scott about being a owning more than just one dog.  We welcome your comments!

The Joys of Having More Than One Dog

Last night, it was a beautifully cool Florida night. I had just gotten home from work, and decided I wanted to just sit out in the back yard to relax while the dogs played. As I sat watching my dogs chase each other all over the yard, I started to do some thinking. I was having so much fun, just watching my dogs play together, and I thought “What did I ever do before I had three dogs to entertain each other, and in turn entertain me? How could anybody not want more than one dog?”

I sat there logically thinking that there are plenty of reasons why I should only have one dog; there’s the cost, the workload, the fact that people look at you like you’re insane for having three dogs, etc… But forgetting all those reasons, I can honestly say even though I grew up only ever having one dog at a time, I have never had as much fun as I do with my three dogs together. I understand that my wife and I probably aren’t “normal”, so not everybody is going to see things my way. But this is my blog post, so you’ll just have to deal with it.

The Spice Girls & Chopper

Even after adopting our two girls from The Dog Liberator, my wife and I still followed TDL’s page closely, watching all of the cute new dogs get adopted. “So and So got adopted today” was a regular source of dinner conversation between us. Then one day we saw a post from Gisele asking for a foster for a couple of dogs. My wife and I thought “Why not?!”

We got in touch with Gisele, and she informed us that she had two boys coming in named Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp, and that they were extremely timid. Gisele felt that the socialization with our three dogs would do them good. Well she was right, the 4 weeks that we had the boys were some of the most rewarding and fun weeks we’ve ever had. Most people thought we were insane for having 5 dogs in our home, but we didn’t care, we LOVED every minute of it. Four weeks to the day of the boys’ arrival, they found their forever home. While we were over the moon for them, a part of us was upset about it. You grow to love these dogs like they are your own; after all, they become part of your pack (if you happen to have 3 dogs already ;-).

The Cowboys & The Spice Girls

Since the boys left, the house has felt a bit empty with ONLY 3 dogs. So much so, that we can’t wait for our next fosters to arrive. Partly because we love having 5 dogs around, but mostly because our beagle Chopper LOVES to play with new dogs. Imagine taking your dog to the dog park, and seeing how much fun he has with other dogs, and bringing that feeling home with you. That’s what our house is like, and we love it!

I’m not saying that having more than one dog isn’t more work, because it is; but what I am saying is that I wouldn’t be having nearly as much fun if I only had one! We adopted the Spice Girls together, and they are just a riot, they never stop playing, and Chopper loves having them around to play with.

Seriously, just watch any of Doc and Wyatt’s videos and you can see my three dogs playing like crazy in the background. I am writing this to get other people’s opinions about having one dog versus having multiple dogs. I know we have quite a few adopters that have adopted more than one dog from us, and would love to hear from them! Thanks for reading, hope to hear from you!
