Hi! My name is Bianca and my foster mom says I’m super sweet and well behaved, and beautiful of course! I already know all kinds of commands, including sit, stay, ball, potty, lay down, walk, dog park, kennel, and treats! I do great at dog parks and I used to go to doggy day care regularly to be social and burn energy. I love to be challenged and I am a quick learner! I am housebroken. I will come right away when you call me whether or not you have treats. I also go in my kennel immediately and never make a peep!

I would love to have a home with other social dogs to play with, but no dogs would be ok so long as you’re willing to walk and play with me instead. I currently live in a home with two other dogs, an elderly Chihuahua and a hyper pitbull, and I love them both. I am really nice and gentle with little dogs and listen to them if they don’t want to play with me. My foster pitbull sister was so excited to meet me that I was a little afraid of her at first, but after a couple of days we became the best of friends and would play all day long if our foster parents didn’t have to go to work. Check out the videos showing how nicely I play! My foster family also has a crazy loud parrot who makes a lot of noise, but he also throws food so he’s ok I guess. I’m very respectful of his cage.

I was adopted once before when I was 4 months old and they were my family for two years. I really really loved them and they loved me. Unfortunately, the cats didn’t like me so much and my family had to make a difficult decision. There weren't any other dogs to play with so I just thought maybe the cats could be my friends instead. My previous family said the cats were too stressed and I was too playful and strong for my new baby sister. They decided I would do better in a home with other dogs to play with to burn off some energy. I wouldn’t mind living with cats or kids again and having a canine companion would be best.  

Have I told you how much I love people? My foster mom says I’m the first dog she’s ever met who truly smiles. If you talk to me I’m just so happy that I smile and my eyes squint up as I wag my tail vigorously for you!

Playtime is for daytime and nighttime is for cuddles. I might be big compared with my foster brother, but I love to cuddle and I can curl myself into a tiny ball so that I will fit on your lap! I love to be to petted and cuddled and I REALLY love belly rubs! I love, love, love people!! I will follow loyally beside you wherever you go.

I LOVE toys! I love to play, and will gladly play with you. My foster mom has yet to find a toy I won’t play with! I will play fetch for as long as you will play with me and when you’re done I’ll just come sit by your side hoping for some love. One of my other favorite things are walks! I go right to the door and wait for you to put my leash on. I do get excited when I see a squirrel or bunny and want to chase after it, but I’m working really hard on listening when the people tell me not to.

I’m a very gentle soul so sometimes things startle me, like fireworks or loud noises, but I will trust you to keep me safe and recover quickly. I’m a little bit shy of new people when I first meet them, but as soon as I’m comfortable I’ll try to steal a kiss. It doesn’t take long!

I would love to lay by you on the couch (or sit quietly on my bed if you’d prefer), next to you in bed, give you kisses and follow you anywhere. Do you have room in your heart for a sweet, gentle lady like me?

About Ruff Start Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Who We Are & How We Do It

We are a small, but mighty, Non Profit 501c3 Rescue. We are a No-Kill dog and cat rescue organization in Central Minnesota. Our rescue is composed solely of volunteers who love animals. We rescue stray, neglected, abandoned, and surrendered dogs and cats and work very hard to place them in new loving homes.

This group is comprised ENTIRELY of volunteers who work full-time doing something that pays the mortgage. We do the rescue stuff (which is our true passion) after work and on the weekends. So if your phone calls or emails are not answered by a live person right away, it’s probably because we are at work and will call you as soon as we can!

By Choice

We do not have a shelter. We are of the belief that a home environment is far more desirable than a shelter or kennel. So, we rely exclusively on homes like yours in which to place our pets until they find their forever home!

We work exclusively with a foster-care program where our pet lives with you, and we pay for or provide everything. A home environment is always the most desirable and with the endless supply of animals needing homes, we just never have enough lined up. Sometimes the foster lasts a week, sometimes several months. A dog or cat will do far better adjusting when they are sitting by your chair or next to you while you are on the computer than stashed in a noisy kennel somewhere surrounded by sick and barking dogs.

We Can't Take Every Surrendered Pet
Because we don’t have a shelter, we can only take a new animal IF we have a vacant foster home for the pet to live while we seek a new forever home for him. OR, if you agree to hang onto the pet while we help them find a new home. Sadly, we are not able to assist every animal that crosses our path. There are just too many dogs & cats out there who need help. But, we DO have an extensive list of people looking for specific dogs and cats - so if you can hang onto your pet for a little longer, we might be able to assist you in placing them. No promises, but we promise to do our very best to help you find your pet their new forever home!

Come Meet Our Pets...

All of our animals are in foster homes. If you would like to meet a foster animal, please fill out an application on our website:! We also have our animals available at adoption events at local Petsmarts! (Monticello, Maple Grove, and Coon Rapids).

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption process we go through is to have the potential adopter fill out an application on our website: There is then a background check done on the potentional adopter and if they pass the background check and home visits we set up a home visit! If the home visit passes, the adopter can then adopt the animal they're looking at after meeting them.

There is an adoption fee. This fee depends on the vetting that the animal has already needed. If the animal is too young and has not yet been spayed or neutered, you are required to sign a contract and agree to have them spayed or neutered.
Adoption fees range from $200 - $300
