Meet Hudini!
Houdini loves to snuggle. The moment I sit down he is up on my lap or under the covers. He likes to be scratched and get belly rubs. He likes everyone including my cat. He does need slow introductions to new people, dogs and cats. He tends to bully new people and dogs at first but then settles into a friendly dog. He is also leery of any new situations. He did not like his new sweater and did not want to put it on. If he thinks something new is about to happen he will go and hide. Houdini likes toys and chasing. He will race around the house with his new chew toy. He is very respectful when you are eating and waits patiently for his own food too. Houdini resource guards people. When he is on my lap he doesn’t want anyone to come near us. He likes quiet respectful children. But more than one racing, wrestling or child activity would be too much for him. He is wonderful. He just has a few quirks to work through.

Houdini would do good in a home with older children.  He is unsure of younger children. 

Prior to adoption Hudini will be neutered, vaccinated, health checked, heatworm/lymes tested and microchipped 

Adoption Fee $350

About Happy Tails Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Happy Tails Rescue is a non profit, 501c3, no kill small group of strictly volunteers who are trying to contribute by finding good loving homes for the many homeless animals that are out there. Along with most rescue groups, we all believe there is an enormous problem (not only in the state of Minnesota, but in our country) with pet overpopulation. We would simply like to do our part in trying to resolve this problem.

We could use your help in many areas, including foster care, providing transport for animals, help at fundraising and adoption events and donated pet supplies and financial support. There are many other things to help with, please give us a call or send an email. We'd love to hear from you!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a shelter, we are a network of volunteer foster homes and there are 2 ways you can meet the wonderful dogs we have who are looking for homes.

We generally have dog adoption events on the 2nd Saturday of the month at PETsMART in Richfield (494 and Lyndale) and on the 4th Saturday of the month at PETsMART in Maple Grove (94/Hemlock Ln). However, our schedule will sometimes vary when special events conflict, so please check our website at of time to confirm that the dog you are interested in will be there to meet you.

Many of our cats stay at the Richfield Petsmart and are available for showing anytime that Petsmart is open. Our wonderful friends at the Richfield Petsmart will be happy to assist you with the adoption process.

Our dogs and cats are also available for private showing. Please call us at 612-588-0188 to confirm our adoption event schedule or to arrange a private showing.

Our Adoption Process...

When adopting a pet through us, we ask that you go through a short screening process with one of our volunteers. we consider the adoption of our dogs and cats to caring forever homes to be our primary responsibility. We work very hard to ensure that we are matching our pets with the appropriate home, for both the animals and the adoptive family. All of our dogs and cats are indoor pets and are not to be left outside unattended, or running loose. You will be asked to sign a legal and binding contract upon adoption and in some cases will include Obedience Training.
