  • Catahoula Leopard Dog
  • Up-to-date with routine shots

Stewie first came to us at Dogma Pet Rescue when he was a baby and he had been run over by a car. We got him the best veterinary care and paid to have his leg surgically repaired by an orthopedic veterinarian. In June 2016, Stewie had to come back to Dogma through no fault of his own. Unfortunately, the leg that had been repaired had developed some issues, and our veterinarians decided it was best to have it amputated. The good thing is that Stewie has not noticed and it certainly has not slowed him down! Stewie is a party animal and LOVES playing with other dogs! He is an ideal dog for a "dog neighborhood" or a dog beach! Stewie is also such a sweetheart and so loving!! Stewie is now about 1 year old and he is a MINI-CATAHOULA MIX! He only weighs about 30 LBS!! He is neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, heartworm tested (neg) and he is on heartworm and flea prevention.

Betty White came to us from Hillsborough County Animal Services where she had been picked up as a stray. It was clear to us that she had suffered many, many years of neglect as she had one of the worst skin infections we had ever seen. She was actually suffering from several different skin infections!

It took months, the best veterinary care and a lot of medications, but her skin infections finally cleared and as she got better, her appetite improved and she put on weight! She was finally healthy enough to be spayed and she is now able to be adopted to her Forever Home! Her foster parents have LOVED getting to know Betty White and see her transform from a sad, sick dog to a healthy, happy, playful little girl! Betty While LOVES TOYS! She carries around stuffed animals and chews on antlers and she loves snuggling with her foster parents! Ms. White is also very social and loves going on outings to outdoor plays and to dog-friendly restaurants. She likes older, low-key dogs and would do well in a home with a dog like this or as an only dog. Betty White is about 7 years old and weighs about 10 lbs.

  • Chihuahua

  • 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.
