What Liberty Did On Her Summer Vacation

28 Sep

Hi! My name is Alexis M. and I am 12 years old. I am writing about my rescue dog named Liberty. Liberty is a very special dog: she has brought happiness to our family, we love the way she plays fetch and takes treats from your hand so gently. When she wants to give kisses, she puts her paws on your shoulders when you kneel down.

This summer has been very fun. We took Liberty to our family and friends’ block parties and barbecues. Our family and friends love Liberty because she is so friendly. Liberty loves to cuddle, especially at night when she rolls over on her back putting her paws on my head while I’m rubbing her stomach.

Liberty loves to go for long walks with us. We also take her to the park to play with other dogs. She is very friendly with other dogs. I personally think I could have never recovered from losing my other dog, but Liberty has helped fill that void.

And Then There Were Two…

27 Jul

Earlier this week, we announced the little Eli is no longer available for adoption through Bully Project, and that he was now an Animal Farm Foundation dog, by the name of Rhinestone Cowboy.

Well, we have some more big news: Liberty is adopted! Our initially shy little girl from Manhattan’s Animal Care & Control is now the best kind of dog out there: a beloved family pet!

About two weeks ago, we got an email inquiry from Philip who had seen Liberty on Adopt NY – a great new website database of animals available through New York City rescues and shelters. He and his family were very interested in meeting Liberty, but they had a vacation coming up – would they be able to meet her if she was still available when they returned?

“Uh, duh!” was essentially what we wrote back. And that’s exactly what happened. Once they returned, we received a follow up email from Philip and we arranged a meeting, where we learned a lot about Liberty’s wonderful new family. Philip and his wife, and their two kids, had previously owned two pitties – the last one passed away at only four years old from a sudden onset of cancer. It was heartbreaking for the family, but life without a dog simply wasn’t an option.

So when they saw Liberty, the urge to meet her was simply too great. And once they met her, the urge to adopt her was even greater. The first comment they made was that she looked very similar to their last dog, and as we were departing from that initial meet & greet, we noticed their daughter seemed emotional. When asking if she was alright, the answer we got was that she wanted to take Liberty home that day.

Well, two days later, she was allowed to do just that!

Congratulations Liberty! We’re so thrilled to have been a part of your journey to your forever home. We love you little one! Now on to getting our other two girls homes…

Our Adoptables

Adoptable Pittie of the Week: Liberty

2 Jul

Over a week ago, we went to Manhattan Animal Care & Control to meet some dogs to see if we could find a new adoptable there and rescue them. Of the four or five dogs we met, one dog truly stood out. Despite her initial shyness, she cuddled up to us pretty quickly and it was clear she was in way over her head. A week later, we went back with Ann, our trainer, to evaluate her and the outcome was wonderful! Liberty is Bully Project‘s newest adoptable!

We thought Liberty was a very appropriate name for this pup, being that we freed her on the weekend before Independence Day.

Liberty can sometimes be shy in new situations or around new people, but she recovers very quickly. She loves getting attention from all people, and especially loves to play games with them. One of her favorite things to do is a fetch a ball, but just about any toy will do just fine.

While living at the shelter, Liberty made a faithful friend in one of the regular volunteers there, named Carol, who also happens to work with Bruised Not Broken. We love that these people took Liberty under their digital wing to have a positive impact on her life. Check out this amazing video Carol made of Liberty on the day we rescued her.

Now, more about Liberty herself: she’s an almost 2 year old, 38 lbs pittie mix. She’s already spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped. In other words: she’s ready to go! As much as we love this little girl, we want to see her have a permanent home of her very own.
