 . Squire .  . Squire .
  • Hound
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
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!

  • Black Mouth Cur
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Shawna is a heartbreaker. Shawna is a black-mouth-cur mix and weighs approximately 36 lbs. She is only 3-4 years old and has had litter after litter of puppies before being dumped at the shelter. She also tested heartworm positive (which makes us angry, because heartworms are easy to prevent!). She also shows clear signs that she was abused. Despite everything, Shawna is a total doll baby - she loves to snuggle and gives the sweetest doggie kisses ever!! She is happy to be out of the shelter, and she is receiving lots of TLC in her foster home. She is dog-friendly (she is being fostered with Squire) and great with kids. She is spayed, vaccinated and micro-chipped, and will start heartworm treatment soon. Shawna"/ adoption donation will be $200. She will be available for adoption in a few weeks, but we are taking applications now at www.DogmaRescue.org. Donations toward her heartworm treatment are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated!

  • Chihuahua, Italian Greyhound
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Miss Twiggy is a heartbreaker. She came to us from the county shelter where she ended up as a "stray" after years of extreme neglect. 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. Visit our website at www.DogmaRescue.org to apply to adopt Miss Twiggy!

  • Pit Bull Terrier, Boxer
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
We are horrified to think what might have happened to Atticus if he hadn't been saved. He was found by our friends at Kindness Animal Hospital tied up so tight that he couldn't move. Also, he was found in the same area where Cabela (the dog shot & tied to the railroad tracks) was found and on the same morning she was found. Kindness got Atticus to us at Dogma Pet Rescue and we are excited to offer him a happy future! Atticus is only 6 months old and is very friendly and is doing great with the other dogs in his foster home! Atticus is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, dewormed and on he is on heartworm and flea prevention. Atticus' adoption donation is $125.

  • Catahoula Leopard Dog

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!

 . Jackson .  . Jackson .
  • Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie, Norwich Terrier
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
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. We need to confirm he has been neutered and once this is confirmed or he is neutered, he will be available for adoption. In the meantime, we are taking applications on Jackson. Jackson's adoption donation will be $250. To apply to adopt Jackson, visit www.DogmaRescue.org!

Everybody who meets Mortimer says the same thing - there is something very special about him!

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!! Mindy is sweet and soulful while Kimmie (shown here getting her belly rubbed) is the ham of the two! Both girls will be spayed, microchipped, vaccinated prior to adoption and they are already dewormed and on heartworm and flea prevention. The adoption donation for both girls is $200.

HOW CUTE IS TYSON??? Not only is Tyson adorable, but he has the best personality! Tyson was owned by the same woman since he was 8-weeks old, but recently her mother has been caring for Tyson.

  • Chihuahua
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

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 only weighs 6 pounds. We can't imagine how she survived this existence and we are so glad we got her before anything bad happened to her. Bindi is a little nervous and shy when meeting new people given her past, but she warms up quickly and then she will love you for life! She has a sparkling personality and she is very playful with other small dogs and she is good with cats. We are estimating her age to be 1-2 years old. She is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, heartworm tested (neg) and she is on heartworm and flea prevention. Her adoption fee is $125.

 . Ruby .
 . Ruby .  . Ruby .
  • Yorkshire Terrier Yorkie, Chihuahua
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
Ruby was found in a gated neighborhood where she was apparently dumped. The residents in this neighborhood 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 Ruby time to start trusting her foster parents, but now she is a happy, well-adjusted playful little girl! Ruby follows her foster mom around from room to room, gives kisses, loves being pet and getting belly rubs and sleeps on her foster mom's pillow at night. Walking on a leash in public is still scary to Ruby, but we are practicing and she is making 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 tolerant of other dogs 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 likes playing with other small, young dogs. Ruby also loves to be outside! She will even venture away from her foster mom to explore her foster parent's large backyard. Ruby is only 1-2 years old, she weighs about 7 lbs. Ruby is spayed, microchipped and vaccinated,heartworm tested (neg) and her adoption donation is $200, 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

  • Chihuahua
  • Up-to-date with routine shots
  • Spayed/Neutered
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. 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.
