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.

Welcome Home New Adopters!

Congratulations on your new adoption of one of our canine companions!

Please do not hesitate to call or e-mail us if you have any questions or concern.  We have a lot to share with you! We also have a Facebook group called “The TDL Pack” for our adopters and volunteers to socialize, share updates about their adopted dog, and connect with other TDL adopters. !

First, please rate our rescue efforts on our Great NonProfits website.  Your reviews are very important to us.  There are great resources available to you on our website, first, “Starting Out Your Dog Right”.  This article will give you a lot of basic information, and answer a lot of your questions.  Also, Over-the-Counter Medications is a great resources as well.

Training is really the key to having a dog that is a joy in your life.  I really recommend some formal training.   We have relationships with experienced trainers and behaviorists.  If you have a question, please contact a TDL representative.

Whoa Nellie!

Dog’s live in the moment, we recommend that you do not feel sorry for your dog’s past.  If you want to raise your dog’s self-esteem, live in the moment with him and start training and rewarding him.  Please take a moment and review Let it Go.  We have written hundreds of articles about specific behaviors and training.  Do not hesitate to ask us if you need help.  One of those articles is about Protective or Scared?

Keep your dog on leash, preferably a slip leash.  Your dog is considered a flight risk for a while, especially while getting in and out a car.  Never leave your dog unattended, even in a fenced-in yard.  Stay with your dog until your dog is comfortable with his new surroundings.  Taking him for walks around your neighborhood will help him learn where his new home is.

Since we work very hard to crate-train all of our rescued dogs, we do recommend using a crate at first.  This will give your dog a safe place to rest.  Using a crate is highly recommended when introducing a new dog to your existing pack.

Remember that it is vital that your dog be well socialized, especially a puppy.  Find a good resource.  Take him to the dog park.  Get him together with your friends’ dogs.  Get him around other dogs who will ensure he keeps good manners!

If you would be so inclined, we’d love to have a “testimony” from you about our rescue that we can post on our website.  We are a small rescue so potential adopters may have some hesitation in dealing with us.  Your words may help put them at ease.

2010 Annual Reunion

Also, every year we have an annual reunion.  We will be making an announcement regarding where and when it will be this fall!  We hope to be able to reunite with you and your new canine companion!

Thank you again for giving our rescued dog a loving home!  We can’t wait for updates!
