  • Chihuahua
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Sofia is the princess of Dogma! She was brought into our partner vet, Vets 4 Pets, by her owners because she needed an emergency c-section. Her owners didn't have the $150 for this life-saving surgery so they reluctantly surrendered Sofia to Dogma. Unfortunately, Sofia's puppies - which were Rottweiler pupoies - did not survive and Sofia barely survived herself. She received stellar vet car and a lot of love from Bets 4 Pets and is now looking forward to a long, happy, healthy life! Sofia is only just 1-year old, she weighs 10 lbs., she is dog-friendly, great with cats and she is very social, out-going and playful! Sofia is also incredibly sweet and loving - she is the ultimate cuddle bug! Sofia is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and on heartworm and flea prevention. Her adoption donation is $250 and to apply for Sofia, our princess, please visit www.DogmaRescue.org.

The last thing we ever want to do is take a dog from a good home, but Willie's owner was in a position where he could no longer keep him. Willie's owner had adopted him from Hillsborough County Animal Services two years ago and Willie is our kind of dog! He is mellow, laid back and easy going! He is also very loving and affectionate! Willie has been great with the other dogs in his foster home and he is very dog-friendly, however, he disagrees with us that cats are "valuable,e members of the family" and needs a cat-free home! Willie is a very good dog and he is housebroken, crate trained and has excellent house manners! Willie is 3-4 years old and weighs about 30 lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and is on heartworm and flea prevention. His adoption donation is $125 and to apply to adopt Willie, visit www.DogmaRescue,org!

  • Border Collie, Rat Terrier
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Desi was picked up as a stray by Hillsborough County Animal Services with a very problematic knee (called a luxating patella). Fortunately, the veterinarians at the shelter operated on Desi's knee and she should have a very positive outcome with no problems in the future! Desi is very affectionate and is loving getting attention from her foster family! She is very good with other dogs and cat-tolerant. Desi is also a very good girl and is housebroken and crate trained and her house manners seem excellent. Desi is about 1-year old, she weighs 20 lbs (she definitely needs to gain a few pounds), she is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and she is on heartworm and flea prevention. Desi is on crate rest for the next 6 weeks while she recovers from her knee surgery and she will be available for adoption at the end of August or the beginning of September.

  • Beagle, Basset Hound

Darwin was a good ol' boy found by one of Dogma's co-directors. He was loaded with fleas and covered in a tar-like substance. After several baths and doses of flea prevention, the fleas and the tar are gone. Darwin also tested positive for heartworms and he is currently undergoing treatment to get rid of those, too! Darwin is a great dog - low key and relaxed, and while he likes to explore the yard for a little bit, his favorite place is on the couch next to his foster parents. Darwin is great with all other dogs and he is even good with cats! Darwin has been neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. He is due to finish his heartworm treatment the second or third week of August and then he will be available for adoption.

  • Miniature Pinscher
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Buster was turned in as a stray to Hillsborough County Animal Services and was brought to our attention by a min pin-loving member of the community. We can never thank this person enough for letting us know this sweet dog needed to be saved and for her generosity which allowed us to save Buster! Buster was sure "busted up," and his injuries are consistent with having been hit by a car. Buster had a messed up front leg, pelvis problems and a really funky looking eye. Fortunately, his pelvis healed over time and our veterinarian determined that the injury to his front leg was an old one that required no intervention. Buster has a full range of motion in his front leg and he runs and jumps and plays like a puppy! Because Buster's eye was a problem and he hardly had any sight out of it, our veterinarian advised on removing the eye to avoid infections and pain in the future. On July 9, Buster's eye is being removed and he will then be available for adoption and will not require any further care! Buster is the happiest, sweetest and most playful dog - he loves playing with his doggie friends in his foster home! He would make an excellent second dog! He is very good with the cat in his foster home. He is housebroken and is crate trained when his foster parents don't run too late from work! ;) Buster is only 2 years old and weighs 10-15 lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and is on heartworm and flea prevention. Buster's adoption donation is $200 and to apply to adopt Buster, please visit www.DogmaRescue.org.

  • Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie, Chihuahua
Bella-Donna came to Dogma with her littermate, Chloe, because their owner, while she loved them very much, couldn't keep them anymore. Bella takes a little time to warm up, but once she does, she is the ultimate snugglebug! Bella gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home, but the same cannot be said for the cats. She probably needs to go to a cat-free home. Bella is active and likes to go for walks and is learning to walk well on a leash. After a nice walk or exploring the backyard, it is nap time on the couch! Bella is also a very good girl and she is housebroken! Bella is 6 years old and weighs about 10 lbs, she is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and is on heartworm and flea prevention. Her adoption donation is $200 and to apply to adopt Bella-Donna, visit www.DogmaRescue.org.

Luther is a social butterfly, loving all people and kids, and he is very dog-friendly! Luther is extremely well-behaved and has excellent leash manners. He is very low key and relaxed - Luther is the kind of dog you can take out with you anywhere and he loves to be a dog-about-town! At home, Luther is house broken and crate trained and has excellent house manners! The only issue with Luther is cats - we cannot convince him that cats are valuable members of the family! Oh well, nobody is perfect, but Luther sure comes close! Luther is about 4 years old and weighs about 70 lbs.

Cali was a stray who was brought to the clinic of our good friends - the Veterinary Center of Fishhawk - where everybody fell in love with her! And what is not to love? Cali is sweet, charming and loves everybody she meets - people, dogs, cats and kids! Like every bully breed Dogma brings into its group, Cali is an ambassador of her breed! Of course at only just under a year old, she needs a little training - she is still a rambunctious puppy! Cali is a good girl though - she is housebroken and crate trained and with a little work on the basics, she will be a perfect Forever Dog! Cali is a pocket pit weighing about 45 lbs. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and is on heartworm and flea prevention.

When Dogma was contacted by a fellow rescuer needing help with a litter of cattle dog mix puppies, we stepped up! We took 3 of the 5 puppies and Sydney is the smallest, sweetest, and most submissive of the entire litter. She was also the last puppy needing help and Dogma has a rule - we never leave a dog behind! Sydney is about 4 months old and weighs 25 lbs. She is very shy and nervous, but we are starting to see her warm up and her loving personality come out! She is dog-friendly (but she mostly loves people!) and is very good with the house cat. Sydney is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated (age appropriate) and has been dewormed. She is being treated for a minor skin condition which, once it clears up, will be gone forever. Sydney's adoption donation is $200 and to apply to adopt Sydney, visit our website www.DogmaRescue.org.

  • Dachshund, Doberman Pinscher
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
J. Roscoe Stubbins is only 9 months old and we had adopted him out when he was 6 months old. Roscoe was loved by his adopters and he was a wonderful dog except for one problem - he refused to accept the fact that cats are "valuable members of the family." So, we are now looking for a cat-free home for Roscoe! Roscoe was originally surrendered to Dogma because his puppy energy was just a little too much for his 80+ year old owner. We are glad to have him in our rescue and look forward to placing him with an equally nice, but more appropriate family for a young puppy! With his short little basset hound or dachshund legs and head too big for his body, J. Roscoe fits right in with our funny-looking breed mixes! He is supposed to be part Doberman, but we also see a lot of shar pei in his big head! J. Roscoe is good with other dogs, and fabulous with kids! He is crate trained and house broken (except for a little nervous peeing, but he is just getting used to his new foster home). He needs to learn some basic puppy manners, but he is a happy, loving, great dog! He only weighs 20 lbs or so. J.Roscoe is neutered, microhipped, vaccinated and on heartworm prevention. His adoption donation will be $175 and we are taking applications now at DogmaRescue.org!

  • Up-to-date with routine shots

Squire is a happy-go-lucky guy (approximately 1.5 years and 45 lbs.) who loves everyone he meets, 2-legged and 4-legged. Dogma volunteer Kelly saved Squire from the county shelter, and he has been re-paying her with kisses. Squire would make a great family dog; he is very loving with the 5-year-old kid in his foster home. Squire is listed as a retriever mix, by the shelter, we see hound in him, but we at Dogma don't care much for labels, so let's just call him a Heinz 57! Whatever he is mixed with, he is a handsome fella, and we just love his unique, expressive ears! Squire would do best with an active family, since he is young, energetic dog. He is still a "puppy" and needs to learn basic manners, but he is a sweet, eager to please guy and will make a wonderful Forever Dog! Squire is neutered, vaccinated, micro-chipped and waiting to steal your heart! His adoption donation is $200 and you can apply to adopt him at www.DogmaRescue.org!

Roux is an 8-10 month old catahoula (or catahoula mix) who currently weighs about 40 lbs. She is extremely affectionate towards people and is very dog-friendly. Our sweet, beautiful girl appears to have been abused and it is the saddest thing when she flinches when we go to pet her head or scratch her behind the ears. Roux is a puppy who needs to learn the basics in manners and how to walk on a leash and she has a very playful energy, but her favorite place is to snuggle on the couch with people! Roux is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and heartworm tested (neg) and she is on heartworm and flea prevention, Her adoption donation is $150 and we are taking applications to adopt Roux now at www.DogmaRwscue.org!

Mindy and Kimmie are MINI-BEAGLES! They only weigh 15-20 lbs each! We believe that Mindy and Kimmie are either sisters or mother and daughter.

They were dumped together outside a hunting club in Levy County and then taken to Levy County Animal Services. The girls are housebroken and crate trained and even love other dogs! The girls are 6-years old, but they do not act like "middle aged" dogs - they have tons of energy and love to play, play, play!!

  • Chihuahua

THE STORY OF (Dogma’s) OLIVER TWIST In November 2013, a virus forced Hillsborough County Animal Services to shut down, giving the stray dogs of the county nowhere to go, forcing them to stay on the streets. The SPCA Florida (in Lakeland) opened up an emergency shelter so the dogs would be safe and get medical care. The SPCA Florida took in 100 dogs and got all 100 safely to new homes or into rescues! Oliver was one of the last dogs needing help, and at Dogma, we never leave a dog behind! Even though Oliver's knees were so deformed that he couldn’t stand up straight, Oliver is sweet, loving and deserving of a dream Forever Home! In March, Oliver had surgery on his left knee and thanks to his surgeon, Dr. Hay, Oliver’s quality of life has improved tremendously! Oliver has no trouble getting around. 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. Not only is Oliver a sweet, cuddly, snuggle-bug, he is also crate trained and may even be housebroken. He is great with other dogs and even cats! Oliver is about 5 years old and weighs about 7 lbs. He is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and he has been on heartworm and flea prevention. We even got Oliver a dental treatment! Dogma has spent thousands of dollars on Oliver's care, 2 vets, 1 top surgeon, countless x-rays, a dental, and all we are asking Oliver’s adoption donation is $75. If you have questions about Oliver, please email Amy@DogmaRescue.org or apply to adopt Oliver at www.DogmaRescue.org. Dogma Pet Rescue, Inc. is a 501c3 registered charitable non-profit organization and relies solely on donations from the public to continue their mission of saving good dogs.

Bonnie is one of Dogma's favorite breeds: a pocket-pit! Bonnie is a pit bull, but she only weighs 40 POUNDS! This tiny little girl could not be better behaved in her foster home - Bonnie is housebroken, crate trained and has excellent house manners! She is also a one-dog comedy show! Her antics leave her foster parents in hysterics and she is SUCH a clown that we are starting to believe that she is being funny just to show off! Bonnie is also very sweet and affectionate ... Bonnie thinks there is nothing better than curling up on the couch at the end of the day and watching tv with her foster parents. Dogma saved Bonnie from the streets and thanks to the attention and consistency of her foster parents, she is a very well-behaved and adoring young girl-dog ... but there is one thing all of the etiquette training will teach her.
