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.

Two Rare Breeds We Should Know About!

The McNab:

Breed Description
The primary quality that these dogs are bred for is their herding ability; they are well known as cattle herders, but can herd other animals, such as horses, sheep, and llamas. McNabs are well-mannered dogs, hard-working, good personal hygiene, and friendly with small domestic animals such as cats and chickens, but they require extensive grounds in which to run and are happiest with a job to do. The McNab can also be an excellent deer and boar hunting dog. The McNab is also less ‘high strung’ or obsessive than the Border Collie. They were bred to have more “backbone” than the original Border Collie. It is common for a McNab to bark while they herd. They should exercise physically but also mentally by learning new activities or ‘tricks’ and being allowed to explore and learn new environments. This breed is sociable with other dogs and humans. They are obedient, protective and friendly.


Hanging Tree Cow Dog

A composite breeding of several dogs gives the Hangin’ Tree cowdog the genetic makeup to be a superior dog for cattle work. From the Catahoula Leopard Dog, top hunting instincts, tenacity, and a natural trailing ability are gained. From the Border Collie, intelligence, trainability, and gathering and herding skills are gained. From the Australian Kelpie, agility, hardiness, and endurance are gained. The careful breeding of those three dogs has produced the Hangin’ Tree Cowdog, a medium-sized dog bred specifically for working cattle.
