  • Pit Bull Terrier
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Housebroken
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. Bonnie INSISTS that cats are NOT valuable members of the family! Bonnie is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and is on heartworm and flea prevention. Bonnie's adoption donation is $125 and if you would like to apply to adopt Bonnie, please visit our website www.DogmaRescue.org to complete an application or email All@DogmaRescue.org with questions.

The chiweenie (or weenie wa-wa) is one of Dogma's favorite breeds - a dachshund/chihuahua combo! They are always active, fun-loving, well-behaved and very loyal dogs! And Dexter is no exception! Dexter was taken in by family members when his owner could no longer care for him. Unfortunately, like most chiweenie's, Dexter suffers from Little Dog Syndrome and is not making life easy for the rest of his dog pack! Dexter is dog-friendly, but would prefer to be the Doggie King of His Castle! Dexter loves everybody he meets (he is a little shy at first) and is a sweet and affectionate dog. He is also a total ham - people without senses of humor need not apply!! Dexter is about 3-4 years old, is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated. He is housebroken and has excellent house manners! Dexter's adoption donation is $150 and for more information on how to make this doggy prince's dreams come true, email All@DogmaRescue.org. You can visit DogmaRescue.org to download an application.

We received a picture of Tiny Tim at Hillsborough County Animal Services looking so depressed and so tired of life with bad skin and hardly any fur. He looked like he wanted to die. We just couldn't let this little dude not get a chance at a second life of happiness! Now in foster care, Tiny Tim is embracing life! He is fun-loving, playful, LOVES playing with the other dogs and is a snuggle bunny! He is also a good boy and is house broken and crate trained. We think his fondest wish in life is to be bigger than the house cat (keep dreaming, Tiny Tim!). But other than posturing to the house cat (which looks ridiculous!), he is good with the kitty. He loves his foster mom and and is a very devoted and loyal little dog. Tiny Tim is only 1-1/2 - 2 years old and weighs about 15 lbs. He has been treated for his skin condition and his fur has grown back a beautiful red! Tiny Tim is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and is on heartworm and flea preventative. He comes with the medication needed to continue treating his skin. Tiny Tim's adoption donation is $125 and if you would like to apply to adopt Tiny Tim (this gets the ball rolling!) please visit our website at www.DogmaRescue.org for an application or email All@DogmaRescue.org with any questions.

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 $125. 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.

 . Ruby .
 . Ruby .  . Ruby .  . Ruby .
  • Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
Ruby is a very special girl, and she needs a very special home. She was found in a neighborhood where the residents banded together to try to catch her. Ruby was so afraid that it took them 2 weeks to finally catch her and get her to the safety of Dogma. In her foster home, it took her about 2 weeks to start warming up and trusting her foster mom. She is still a little leery of her foster dad. Ruby follows her foster mom around from room to room, gives kisses, loves being pet and sleeps on her foster mom's pillow at night. She is still nervous when approached, but she is getting better and we think we will continue to see improvement. We don't know what made Ruby so scared - if she was abused or just neglected to the point she never had any socialization - we just know that she needs a quiet home with a very patient person or couple. Ruby is not fond of other dogs, but she is tolerant, and she is very good with the house cat. Ruby appears to have had puppies (she may have been used as a breeder dog) and she LOVES the tiny jack russell terrier puppy in her foster home! She will run and play with him and have a blast! Ruby also loves to be outside! She will even venture away from her foster mom to explore her foster parent's large backyard and is having a good time! Ruby is only 1-2 years old, she weighs 5-6 lbs. We do not know what she is mixed with (other than yorkie), but she is longer than most yorkie's we've seen. Ruby is scheduled to be spayed, microchipped and vaccinated on March 29 and then she will be available for adoption. Her adoption donation will be $250 and to apply to adopt Ruby, go to www.DogmaRescue.org or email Amy@DogmaRescue.org with any questions. Homes with children will not be considered because of Ruby's nervousness, nor would she be a fun dog for kids. BE SURE TO CHECK OUT RUBY'S ALBUM ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE: DOGMA PET RESCUE

SSF (Single Scruffy Female) SEEKING LONG TERM FOREVER HOME - EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Meet DeDe! DeDe is an 8-10 month old JRT mix who had given a lot of people a run for their money!! We at Dogma saw DeDe as a sweet young girl who had never been shown any boundaries or taught any manners and, like Lindsay Lohan, thought the world caved to her every whim and desire! DeDe has learned with her experienced foster parents and their dogs that the people are in charge, not her. DeDe is a Jack through and through, stubborn and smart, and if you have had a challenging Jack and know how to handle her, DeDe is the BEST DOG EVER!! DeDe has picked up on corrections faster than most dogs, she is extremely smart and eager to please, she just needs the right people to show her the ropes and she may ... with the right owners ... be the best dog ever. (We absolutely love DeDe). DeDe came from Hillsborough County Animal Services and she is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, and she was treated for a minor skin condition which has healed completely. She is also on heartworm and flea prevention.

Buddy was a stray dog who picked the right house to hide under! Once he was coaxed out, his foster mom realized that he was a diamond in the rough.

He is housebroken, has excellent house manners and walks very well on a leash. He is a little shy around other dogs, but loves other nice, laid back dogs like he is.
