Sawyer is a smarty! He learns commands easily and is motivated by positive re-enforcement. He is house trained, crate trained and leash trained. He is a high energy boy who loves to go for car rides especially if it is to the park to play fetch or somewhere to go for a hike or a run.

Sawyer suffers from anxiety. However, he has worked with a trainer in the past to help moderate this. His family moved to a smaller home without a yard which he needs in order to run around and burn off his energy. An active life and larger yard will also help alleviate his anxiety. Sawyer does great with cats. He has no issues with other dogs at doggy daycare, but every so often when his anxiety kicks in, he gets a little aggressive with his dog sister. Are you looking for an active partner? Meet Sawyer!

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.
