Dogma Pet Rescue

We at Dogma are remembering all of those who gave their lives in the armed forces so we can enjoy the freedoms we have today.

Usually dogs who have seen combat are bigger dogs - German shepherds like Nemo who served in Vietnam, or Stubby, mentioned here, was a staffie mix. But little guys were just as brave and helped our military & our allies defeat enemy forces!

Smoky
Yorkshire Terrier who saw action in the Pacific during World War II, Smoky was initially found in February 1944, abandoned in a foxhole in the jungles of New Guinea. The dog was included in a dozen combat missions and survived more than 150 air raids. Like famous World War I veteran Stubby, Smoky used her sharp sense of hearing to warn of incoming artillery shells. One of Smoky’s most famous exploits was at a crucial airstrip in the Philippine Island of Luzon. The dog pulled a telegraph wire through a narrow 70-foot pipe, saving construction time and keeping workers and engineers safe from enemy fire. When not in harm’s way, Smoky entertained troops with a variety of tricks and self-taught antics. The dog died on February 21, 1957; she was 14 years old. Smoky’s exploits are chronicled in detail in the book Yorkie Doodle Dandy, written by her adoptive owner William A. Wynne.

Put your paws together & welcome our newest arrival to Dogma - HEIDI!

Heidi is an 8-month old pure bred black German Shepherd whose owner surrendered her to us. Heidi is a WONDERFUL young puppy - she is VERY dog-friendly & is loving playing with the other dogs in her foster home, and she is even being respectful of the cats in her foster home!

We are getting Heidi to the vet this this week to be spayed and then she will be available for adoption!

Heidi could have ended up anywhere after having been purchased at PETLAND at Christmas, but we are so glad that she is with us where she will find a perfect Forever Home for her where she will be loved & cared for for the rest of her life! If you are interested in adopting Heidi, visit www.DogmaRescue.org!

We want to take this opportunity to thank Hillsborough County, Florida 's BOCC and in particular Victor D Crist for GRANDFATHERING IN EXISTING PET STORES! GOOD JOB AS ALWAYS! >:/

a pet store christmas pet.......exactly

She is beautiful! !!!!! ❤

Politics as usual. If there wasn't an existing problem there wouldn't be the need for the ordinance. Good job grandfathering in the problem.

I still can't believe the BOCC was so stupid as to keep importing puppies to this area. I don't think three stores changing their business would have had an impact on the Tampa economy. But three stores importing how many pups a year? That will impact the shelter for years to come, as they keep breeding them.

OMGOSH this is awesome!!! Sharing !!!Our BOCC is a complete waste and Victor Crist should be ashamed!!!

Beautiful girl, Shared.

Mitch Spradling - Shes perfect. 🙂

Beautiful, looks just like my Abby!

Where is the puppy mill?

We are behind on our Happy Tails, and this is a VERY HAPPY TAIL!

LUCY VAN PELT GOT ADOPTED!!!

Lucy is the superstar of her Forever Mom, Janet's, life (and and apartment complex!!). Lucy is getting so much love and bringing so much joy to Janet's life! We are so happy for our little girl who was surrendered to Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center so neglected with such bad skin infections as her owner was about to be homeless. What could have been a very sad ending for Lucy turned out to be the happiest of endings!

One of the best things about having your own dog rescue is running into your former foster dogs walking with their mom & brother on Bayshore while you're driving to work, and when you stop to say hi, they practically JUMP INTO YOUR ARMS!!!

I saw Stevie Andrews today on his morning walk & he is doing just GREAT!! It was such a wonderful surprise & got my day off to a wonderful start!!

Awesome

Took me by total surprise that someone knew who my pup was! Thanks for taking the time to say hi and give him love. He knew you in an instant and was jumping all over you to give you hugs and kisses (sorry about the dirt on your work attire 😬). Stevie (now Pinot) has been such a joy. He and Napa are best buds and while he still has some anxiety to overcome with all the other doggies in the condo, he tries really hard and just wants to please. He's one of the most loving dogs I've ever met. Thank you for saving him ❤️🐾

We had a fabulous time today at the South Tampa Petsmart! Our beautiful shepherd, Kelly, got adopted to such a sweet couple, Sam & Olivia! They also have a 2-year old vizla named Roscoe so they are used to high-energy dogs who love to olay, and Kelly will have a 4-legged brother of her very own!

We got so much great interest in Kelly and thank everyone who took the time to inquire & apply for her! As always, we recommend checking the county shelter, like Hillsborough County Animal Services/Pet Resource Center because you never know what amazing dogs end up there - Kelly was found in a similar shelter by our good friends who rescued her!

Congrats Kelly on your Forever Home & welcome, Sam & Olivia, to the Dogma Family!

Adopting from Dogma Brings Good Karma!

Dogma Pet Rescue, Inc. was founded on January 6, 2010 and is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization as well as a registered charitable organization in the State of Florida (CH34850).

Dogma is an all-volunteer, all-pet rescue with an emphasis on rescuing mixed breed dogs (mutts!) in need. Dogma’s mission is to rescue good dogs, adopt them to the best possible homes and have fun doing it!

Dogma rescues abandoned, abused and displaced dogs who would otherwise have nowhere to go and/or would be euthanized. Dogma is often a rescue of last resort. Dogma pays for all of the necessary vetting of each dog prior to adoption. Every Dogma dog is spayed/neutered, microchipped, dewormed, heartworm tested and vaccinated (age appropriate).
