Story
Hi! My name is Ripp and I bet you are wondering what an adorable puppy like me is doing up for adoption. I came to The Bond Between at only 6 months with some concerns for back leg weakness and a heart murmur. Recently I was diagnosed with fibrotic myopathy which means my muscles do not heal properly and become dense making it difficult for them to contract and do their job of moving when I want them to. There is no medical intervention to treat this so I am just learning to get around without full use of my back legs. However, since coming to rescue I've built up a lot of muscle with regular exercise and at home leg stretches so I am getting around, jumping into vehicles, and climbing stairs like any other puppy my age. The vet also noticed a heart murmur but the cardiologist says it's nothing to be concerned about. None of these things slow me down in the slightest, I am pain free and absolutely digging life! Speaking of digging did I mention how much I love digging in the mud? I am the happiest puppy in the world but I am most happy when I am causing chaos. I chase leaves, balls, squirrels and I even do a very good job of keeping up with my foster brothers. My foster mom thinks I don't even know I'm any different than any other dog. I am a pure bred German Shepherd which means I am high energy and very smart so I will need a family that can keep up with me and work on training to keep my mind busy. I am also very loveable, and loyal I give kisses and love cuddling after a busy day of chewing bones and playing. I am sometimes very clumsy and always very goofy, I do a lot of talking to my people and other dogs, I love when I get attention and I know a few cute head tilts and whines will get me a lot of "awws and attention from people. I am completely potty and crate trained but am working on leash manners and to not be so mouthy when I'm playing or bored. I get along great with other dogs and considering my age I would likely adapt nicely to other small animals in the home. I am 75lbs and still working on putting on weight and will definitely be a large dog when I'm all grown up. I may require a little extra work and commitment someday but I promise to pay you back with love in spades. Accepting applications for my new best friend today! Medical Bio: "I would love for my furever family to know a bit more about my medical history! I do have fibrotic myopathy, but at this time my mobility hasn't been getting any worse and I manage as best I can. Management of this with pain meds if they were ever necessary could be an option for me at some point in the future. I was also diagnosed with a heart condition called a ventricular septal defect which is essentially a hole in my heart and an associate heart murmur. Don't worry, they say it's really small and the cardiology specialist says they "don't ever expect this to be a concern for Ripp" Score. My adopters should know it may be recommended to have my heart checked annually for an echocardiogram for monitoring. Grain inclusive diets will be recommended for me and if a home cooked diet is preferred, a board certified veterinary nutritionist should be consulted."

Story
Hi, my name is Dora. I am from a local MN shelter. Dora is a sweet and bold girl! She is curious, playful, and enjoys a day full of adventure (unless it has to do with water, she's still exploring if she loves it or not)! She loves to be with her human friends! She does well with our resident dog (she has not been introduced to other dogs yet, but slow intros would be best for her). She is curious about our cat and with continued positive interactions, she could do well. She is vocal when she is nervous and she does not like her kennel (when in it, she does bark a lot). She is a puppy and will benefit from continuous positivie training with behavior but with positive reinforcments, she will do well. She is working on her potty training and doing really well! She will stand by the door to let us know when its time to go out. She knows sit and working on shake. Dora is the absolute best girl who will follow you on any adventure. She loves to please and is food motivated. She loves to play fetch and loves to run in our fenced in yard! From the Vet: My foster noticed I was drinking more water than normal so we mentioned it to the vet when I got spayed. Good news is that my labs all cam back normal so there was no indication of underlying disease. I will likely need between 2-6 cups per day depending on activity level, however if I am drinking more than this it may be an indication that I am needing more mental enrichment in my environment to avoid this. My furever family should know about this so they can monitor it and consult a primary vet at their cost after adoption should any issues arise related to this behavior. Can't wait to meet you!

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Thank you for stopping by to see me!  Please fill out an application to set up  a private meeting.  Please apply online to schedule a one-on-one meeting with me - https://underdogrescuemn.com/canine-adoption-application/ DOB: Approximately 5/23/16 Requires another dog in home: Yes, needs another large social dog Okay with dogs of all sizes: Yes Okay with cats: Unknown Okay with children under 12 years old: Unknown weigh: 63 pounds Requires a fenced yard: Yes Note: dogs must always be leashed whenever outside of a contained area Hello, my name is Ellen. I am a gorgeous, sweet, and very kind albeit shy adult female German Shepherd. Truth be told, I am afraid of pretty much everything in this enormous world from commotion to loud noises like thunderstorms so a fenced yard is a must. Additionally, I am looking for a VERY special fur-ever family who is lovingly patient and will NEVER give up on me! I have not met any cats or kids, but I am good with other dogs and will need another large dog who will help me feel comfortable and secure! I don’t play much but I’m a smart girl who knows what “go potty” means and I’m potty & leash trained. As for the kennel/crate, foster mom doesn’t put me in that cave because I am an amazingly good girl who simply lays in her bedroom, she can even shut the door if she wants to because I feel safe in there. I am very slowly learning what it’s like to feel safe and loved. In fact, I have become comfortable enough with foster mom that I greet her in the morning by putting my head right next to hers while I patiently await lovingly gentle head scratches! Hint, hint! By the way, I also love butt scratches and ear rubs! Just sayin’! Hee, hee!! Anyway, I really am an incredibly sweet girl who tries SO hard to be brave. All I need now is a calm fur-ever home. Sure, I may not ever be that girl that greets you at the door or gives you kisses but I assure you that I have an enormous heart that is brimming with unconditional love and I long to share with YOU!! All I ask is that you give unconditional love in return and allow me the time, space, and patience I need to become comfortable and learn to trust in my own time! I promise that I’m worth it and in time, I will love you more than all the pebbles of sand on the planet! Love, Ellen *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. ***Be sure to check your spam/junk folder as sometimes our emails end up there***  Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.If you have other questions about me you can email Underdog Rescue at <inquiries@underdogrescuemn.com> ADOPTION EVENTS:      Adoption events are updated at the top of each dogs animals' as their foster home signs up. Check back for updates on which events they will be attending. If an event is not listed within their bio above, the animal is not planning to attend.  Please understand that all of our pets are in volunteer 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 understand we cannot guarantee event attendance. We recommend filling out an application and we will set up a private appointment. Private appointments are only scheduled after an application is submitted and approved. ADOPTION PROCEDURE: The first step in our process is to complete an online adoption application on our website: http://www.underdogrescuemn.com/adoptionprocess/   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 http://www.underdogrescuemn.com/contact-us/ if you have further questions. FOSTER CARE: 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, but each bio is written by the foster as they see them, in their home. Each animal's behavior is evaluated and we have a sense of its temperament and personality, but it cannot be guaranteed. We look for adopters who will give each animal the wonderful life and permanent home that he or she deserves in time and with patience.  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: 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.
