Hello. I am Little John Young!! I'm a very special boy who needs lots of patience and trust-building in a very mellow home.

You see, I was locked in a bathroom of a hoarder's home for my first five years of life, and only fed food through the crack at the bottom of the door. I was so scared and lonely! I even had to have 33 rotten teeth removed, so I only have six left.

I am slowly learning to trust humans but I admit that I have a road of recovery ahead of me. I am working on it, though, and I'd love to have you by my side as I get better. My foster parents have said I've improved so much in the last few months! Now I sleep in bed with them at night, love to cuddle, and play in the pool.

I just know that we could love one another. I don't take up much room and I don't shed at all!

My ideal home would be a quiet home with few visitors. Ideally, a single person or two people who are dedicated to me and to my progress. I do fine with other dogs as long as you introduce us slowly. Once I know them, I can walk alongside other dogs like a pro. Now, I hang out with the big dogs in the house all day. I think it's pretty cool! I've come a long way! But... I don't want to play with them and if they are boys I really do not like them that much at all... I pick fights that I can't back up.

I'm leash-trained, crate-trained, and I do love a good ride in the car. I also love to play with my toys and, then, when we're tired, I'd love to sit on your lap and cuddle.

Because kids move so quickly and unpredictably, I really don't want to live in a home with children. I'm ashamed to admit that I am a bite risk, if I'm not handled properly. But it's only because I'm scared of new people. With the start that I had, can you blame me?

But I am a really forgiving little guy. My foster parents have gained my trust, and I sit on their laps, play fetch in the yard, and go for daily walks. I would love to find my forever home with people who will love me as much as I will love them. Do you have a place in your heart for sweet little me?

*John will do best in a home with a doggy door, he LOVES to zip through and do his patrol around the yard!

About Underdog Rescue of Arizona

About Our Rescue Group...

Underdog Rescue of Az is an all volunteer organization dedicated to the rescuing and re-homing of abandoned and/or abused dogs.

We are a foster-based rescue, and do not maintain a physical base of operations. All of our animals are placed with loving, caring safe foster families until they are adopted. We are also an "All Breed" rescue, and do not discriminate based on breed, age, size, etc.

Underdog's mission also includes educating the public on the issue of animal welfare. We strive to promote shelter reform, spay and neuter education and emergency rescue information & assistance.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We attend multiple adoption events throughout the valley during Spring and Fall.
If you are interested in a specific pet, please complete our adoption application found on our website and we can then coordinate a meet and greet.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters will be required to complete our Adoption Application, read and sign our Adopting Policies and Procedures, and participate in a home visit by one of our adoption representatives. Our Adoption Application is located on our website:

We also have a mandatory two-week Foster With Intent to Adopt trial period for all animals in order to be certain the pet is a good fit for your family.

Our standard adoption fee for dogs is $200; puppies are $250.

Non-standard fees do sometimes apply. Puppies younger than six months may have a higher fee. Designer dogs, purebreds, and other toy type breeds may also have higher adoption fees than the standard $200.

We do, however, have discounted fees for dogs that are seniors, a pair of dogs adopted together, or cats. If you are a veteran or an active duty service member, please ask about our partnership with Pets For Patriots.

All Underdog pets are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped prior to adoption.

We are a 501c3 non profit, your donations save lives and are 100% tax deductible.
