  • 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

  • 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

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.
