What kind of mix is Stella? Stella is part retriever, part love-muffin and part attention-hound! Stella is madly in love with her foster family and poor Stella, when she was found on the streets having recently given birth (sadly her puppies were not found), was so starved for attention that we wonder if anyone has ever loved her. We are making up for lost time! Regardless of whatever has happened to Stella, she is loving and trusting of people, she loves to cuddle and she loves to give kisses! Stella is only about 10-12 months old and she is a very quiet and calm dog. And for being so young, she is also a very good dog! She is housebroken and crate trained and her house manner have been excellent! Stella weighs about 35-40 lbs., she is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and she is on heartworm and flea prevention. Her adoption donation is $150 and to apply to adopt Stella, please visit www.DogmaRescue.org!

Maisey is one lucky girl! She was found in the woods by a woman who had the compassion to take her into her home, care for her and reach out to us at Dogma Pet Rescue to find her the very best Forever Home! Maisey is a hound mix, but we also think she has some Staffie in her and her size, a petite 35-40 lbs, makes her look like a mixey little pocket pittie! She is adorable! The best thing about Maisey is she has an ADORABLE personality! The SMILE says it all - Maisey is loving, VERY dog-friendly and submissive, she is house broken and crate trained and has very good manners. Maisey is demure and quiet, and so affectionate! It appears as though Maisey thinks cats are not "valuable members of the family," so she should probably go to a cat-free home! Maisey is only about 1 year old, again she only weighs about 35-40 lbs.. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and she is on heartworm and flea prevention, her adoption donation is $125 and you can apply to adopt Maisey at www.DogmaRescue.org.

Hambone was tossed out of a car window, into a yard. The homeowner saw the people toss him out of the car, but her own truck was so broken down that she couldn't make it all the way to Animal Services; she could only make it as far as our veterinarian's office. They promptly called us to help. No dog deserves to be treated the way Hambone was, but especially a dog as NICE as Hambone!! Hambone is sweet and loving (although still a little nervous) and he LOVES OTHER DOGS! He has had a very good time playing with another Jack Russell mix in foster care and one of his foster parents' own dogs. He has ignored the cat in his foster home completely! Hambone has not had any accidents in his crate or the house beyond just a little leg lifting, but he was just neutered on Jan. 7 and we expect that to stop. Hambone is about 1 year old and weighs about 12-15 lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and is on heartworm and flea prevention. His adoption donation is $200 and to apply to adopt Hambone, visit www.DogmaRescue.org! We do have another Jack Russell up for adoption and they would make a cute pair! Email Info@DogmaRescue.org for information and reduced adoption donations.

He goes up and down stairs with ease and runs around with the other dogs! Oliver LOVES to go outside to walk around and check things out while his foster mom gardens! Dr. Hay has given Oliver a clean bill of health and the only maintenance he needs is keep a healthy weight to avoid stress on his knees.
