Please check back for upcoming events I will be attending!
Hi! My name is Demetrius and I’m a 7-year-old, 12 lb Shih Tzu.
I’m a total lover! I love my people so much that I would be perfectly content just being held by them constantly. I like to have a quick sprint around the house a couple of times during the day to get my energy out, then I’m right back to snuggling. I am just learning about balls and toys and am realizing just how fun they can be! I’m also learning how to walk on a leash. It’s a new experience for me but I know I’ll get the hang of it eventually!
I am potty trained and crate trained. I usually will whine for a little bit when I first go into my crate because I would rather be held by my people. After a couple of minutes though, I just am so tired and comfy in there that I fall right to sleep! Thunderstorms are scary to me and make me so anxious… Having a thunder shirt in my forever home would be helpful to keep me comfortable during storms.
If you’re looking for a charming and loving pal, I’m your guy! My foster mom says I’m a dream companion and will make my new family so happy!!!
Many of our dogs are rescued from commercial breeders where they spent their lives getting comfort from their canine friends. In turn, most require another companion dog in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog, and do not currently have a dog residing with you, please understand that your home might not be the right fit for many of our dogs.

Please understand that all of our pets are in foster homes and sometimes "life" happens and the foster family cannot make it to their scheduled adoption event. If you are traveling from a far distance to meet a specific animal, please email us to confirm attendance.
To fill out an online adoption application please visit our website www.underdogrescuemn.com/adoption-applications Note: In most circumstances Underdog Rescue will only adopt within 60 miles of Minneapolis, MN. All of our foster animals can be seen by appointment with an approved adoption application. Contact us at 952-929-0777 or email us at email@example.com for more information.
All of our animals are fostered in individual homes or doggie daycare facilities. While they are in our care, they are part of our families and given lots of love. We work on training, crate-training and socialization prior to adoption. Each animal's behavior is evaluated and we have a sense of its temperament and personality. We look for adopters who will give each animal the wonderful life and permanent home that he or she deserves. If you have an interest and ability to be a foster home, please visit our website www.underdogrescuemn.com/foster-applications and fill out a foster application.
Nutrition is vital to the rehabilitation and life-long health of our pets. All of our foster animals are fed a premium diet such as NutriSource, Canidae, Orijen, Nature's Variety, Fromm, Pure Vita, Stella and Chewy's, Primal, or balanced raw diet. All adopters are required to continue providing premium diets for the life of the animal.
