What you need to know about me: I am 2 years old and pretty much half of my life I have been living in a shelter. I am very anxious about my living arrangements (and who wouldn't be?) as a result, I am initially shy and concerned when meeting new people, but I quickly regain my trust as long as you have a little bit of patience with me!

I prefer to be the only animal in the house, I like my humans all to myself! Below you will see my DNA test results, very interesting but mostly I am just a very nice dog! I am also one of the smartest dogs at the shelter I am told! I obey all the commands in....wait for it...... spanish, english german and french! My kennel routine is outstanding, as are my leash manners. I love to please my humans and will impress you with my sit, down, and shaking your hand! 

Pick me, pick me!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

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.

Go meet their 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.
