  • Dachshund, Miniature Pinscher
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Underbite? Check! Stubby lil legs? Check! Ridiculous name? CHECK! We have ourselves a Dogma dog! The Mighty Thor! came from such a nice family who sadly couldn't continue to take care of him. Thor was very loved by his family and he is good with other dogs and was raised with kids and he is very good with kids! Thor had never met a cat before coming to Dogma and it is going well (although as you can see the kitty is three times Thor's size!) The Mighty Thor! weighs just over 5 lbs and he is about a year old. Our guess is he is a mini-dachshund mixed with min pin or chihuahua. Whatever he is, he is adorable with an outgoing personality! Thor will be neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and tested prior to adoption and his adoption donation is $200. Visit www.DogmaRescue.org to apply to adopt The Mighty Thor! or email Amy@DogmaRescue.org with questions.

  • Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler)
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Arugula and Alfalfa, The Salad Sisters, are MINI-cattle dog mixes! They are only 30 lbs each! They were dumped at Hillsborough County Animal Services and thank goodness found their way to Dogma! The sisters are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. A bonded pair is where one dog is dependent upon the other for comfort and leadership. One of The Salad Sisters is dependent upon the other to show her "all is well." Not only are Arugula and Alfalfa bonded, but they also love each other dearly. We would never dream of splitting them up. The sisters are 6-years old and they are housebroken. They are also dog-friendly. The Salad Sisters are quiet, mellow and very low-key dogs. They are very loving and affectionate with their foster mom. They are identical in personality except that one is more confident. They are currently undergoing treatment for heartworms and once the treatment is complete, they will be heartworm free and they are in excellent health! They are both spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and on flea prevention and their adoption donation for both girls is $200. To apply to adopt The Salad Sisters, visit www.DogmaRescue.org and email questions to Info@DogmaRescue.org.

  • Plott Hound

Plott hounds are a Dogma favorite so she is named after one of our favorite literary characters! When we saw this young lady-dog at Hernando County Animal Services while we were picking up another dog, we could not leave her behind! Scout is like her namesake - a little bit of a tomboy, loves playing with the other dogs and is very smart! She is even good with cats. She is a puppy who needs to learn basic manners, but she is housebroken and crate trained and a quick learner! Scout is one of the most dog-friendly dogs we've ever seen and for her to be happiest, Scout's Forever Home needs to have another nice dog. We don't know what Scout's background was, but we think a man must have been mean to her. She is a little nervous around men but warms up over a little time and patience. Scout is about 9 months old and weighs about 35-40 lbs. She is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and is on heartworm and flea prevention. Scout's adoption donation is $150 and to apply to adopt Scout, visit www.DogmaRescue.org!

Bindi was found living in a mobile home park in the middle of nowhere. No one wanted her there so she had to fend for herself. This poor little girl would even walk up to the nearby highway where she was seen by the lady who rescued her. Bindi weighs a whopping 6 pounds, she would have never made it on her own. Now that Bindi is with Dogma she is back on track and looking for her forever home. She is very playful with other similar size dogs. We are estimating her age to be 1-2 years old. She will be spayed, vaccinated and microchipped prior to her adoption. Her adoption fee is $150. Bindi is available to a home without small children.

SSF (Single Scruffy Female) SEEKING EXPERIENCED FOREVER HOME! 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 that the people are in charge, not her, and she is so smart and eager to please that she learned corrections very quickly! DeDe is VERY playful and dog-friendly! She does very well with all sizes and ages of dogs and DeDe would make an excellent second dog. DeDe is also very respectful of her foster parent's cat. After DeDe is done playing, she is a cuddle-but and lives for belly rubs! DeDe came from Hillsborough County Animal Services and she is just 1-year old and weighs 12-15 lbs.

 . Ruby .  . Ruby .  . Ruby .
  • Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
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

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.

Rhett was born into the worst kind of life for a dog. He was a puppy mill dog. He had no socialization at all and when we first got him, he was terrified of everything. Thanks to his very special foster mom, Rhett was nurtured and learned how to trust. Rhett has come out of his shell, and now Rhett is a very loving little boy, sweet, affectionate boy! Rhett is the ultimate lap dog and loves cuddling. He is very good with the other little dogs in his foster home and would do very well with another dog or as an only dog. He is a wonderful little dog who has been through a lot in his life. Most dogs like Rhett don't get a second chance and we are so glad we were there for Rhett! While his foster mom loves him, we all have the same dream for Rhett: A Forever Home. We care for and treat our foster dogs like they are our own, but what we really want them to have is a family of their own, with people who can give them so much more attention than we can. Rhett is about 3-years old and only weighs 5 lbs. He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested and is on heartworm and flea prevention.

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.
