 . Maebe .  . Maebe .  . Maebe .
  • Beagle
  • Spayed/Neutered
  • Special Needs
Meet Maebe. She was just another discarded, overlooked pup at Animal Services until Dogma came along. This poor pup was pretty nervous and scared when she first came "home" to foster care, but now she is settled and has a bubbly little personality. She is especially enjoying the company of the other pups in the house. Maebe walks great on a leash and loves to run and play in the yard. We estimate her age to be at least 7 months old. She is blind in one eye(which is why we have her listed as "special needs", but she sees just fine out of the other. We suspect her limited vision is a result of an injury sustained as a puppy. Maebe does best with same size or smaller dogs. Large dogs are not really her thing. And while she is just a kid herself, she does not prefer the company of small children. We are looking for a home without little kids. Maebe is looking for an experienced dog owner. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. This little lovely is ready to go! Her adoption fee is $150. Please email info@dogmarescue.org for more information.

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!

Like the dog she came with (Kermit), Twiggy is also heartworm positive and had severe demodex mange (non-contagious) that caused her to lose most of her fur. She has been receiving medicated baths, antibiotics, and lots of love in her foster home. She's a young (3-4 years), 8 lb Chihuahua mix who is ALL legs and LOVES to run!! Her ideal home is one where she can spend a lot of time with her humans and hopefully another dog similar in size and energy (large dogs make her nervous). Twiggy is crate-trained and partially housetrained (she recently learned to use potty pads). Miss Twiggy has been spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and is under treatment for her demodex. She will need to continue her medication for a few more months, but we promise you she's worth the extra effort. Miss Twiggy's adoption donation is $150.

Jackson is 3-4 years old and weighs about 10 lbs. When we got him, he looked like he had been neglected his entire life. He was missing a lot of fur and what fur he had was matted. His nails had never been clipped and he was loaded with fleas. After taking him to our veterinarian (Vets 4 Pets) and giving him a spa day, Jackson is healthy and looking good and feeling great! Even though Jackson was so neglected, he is a very sweet and loving little dog. He has a nice, playful energy, he is great with other dogs and he is even good with cats! Jackson is still in the process of being vetted, but he is microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and of course is on heartworm and flea prevention.

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.
