YETI was born on February 14, 2014 - he is a VALENTINE'S DAY DOG! He is a boxer/pit mix, approximately 50 lbs. He was surrendered to us by his family because they did not have enough time for him. (Sadly, it's a story we hear all too often in rescue.) Yeti is a good boy with a big heart. He has a lot of energy and needs an experienced and active home (camping, hiking and boating would be ideal for him). Yeti's foster mom has been working with him on basic obedience/impulse control (he is eager to please and has already learned sit, stay, down and place commands). Yeti is good with other dogs (he currently lives with 3 other dogs in his foster home). Of course, like all dogs, he needs a proper introduction. Yeti is neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and micro-chipped. His adoption donation is $125 and to apply to adopt Yeti, visit www.dogmarescue.org to complete an application.

Their owner had passed away, and the owner's family, instead of taking them to a shelter or a rescue, just released them into the neighborhood to fend for themselves!! Fortunately, compassionate neighbors found out what happened and were determined to catch them - but it wasn't easy (which is how they got their names)! They came to us very sick with lots of skin conditions, and Bonny (the white and tan Chihuahua) had the bump removed on her eye. They are both completely healthy now with no medical problems and are ready for their Forever Home! Bonny and Clyde are a bonded pair and must be adopted together. They are both very sweet, loving and affectionate. Both are very dog-friendly and good with cats. For such a traumatic experience, they are both the happiest little dogs!

THE STORY OF (Dogmaâs) 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 couldnât 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, Oliverâs 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 Oliverâs adoption donation is $75.
