Story
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.    Hi, my name is Rory! I figure if you’ve read my breed and age, you’re still here because you realize that think I’m adorable.  Perhaps you thought, ‘OH, a poodle mix!” Well, I’m here to tell you that not only am I that, but I’m a mini one.  Because who really needs all that big dog type of pet.  Sure, they’re just as cute but I won’t take up as much space and all that “extra” dog stuff is over rated.  I’ve been having so much fun learning all the dog things now that I’m in a foster home.  I’ve been practicing to be the best one for my forever pad.  I’m an adult too, so there isn’t all that nonsense that comes with puppies.  I like to spend my time with YOU and play with my little Lamb Chop toys.  When you want to give me something special, I do love some bones to chew on, treat puzzles and soft treats. You’ll soon discover that I’m your new best friend.  I’ll follow you to the moon and back.  While other dogs are nice, I prefer you.  Every minute.  Every day.  So much so that if you put me in the kennel when you’re home, I’ll tell you in my outside voice how disgruntled I am about it.  But if you’re not home, then I’ll be ok.  I’m still working on potty training but am pretty good about it if you keep me on a good schedule.  I find it hard to go when we are out walking, so I do wish to have a fenced yard.  I’m not a fan of the cold weather so if that’s the case, you might need encouragement.  I am an escape artist if I see an opening in the fence so be sure to check it well and often. I even know what “sit, come, down, kennel, go potty and outside” mean.  I bet you the puppies don’t know that. And I love a good car ride. But not as well as I love snuggling and having your undivided attention. Ready for some adventures? So am I!! I can’t wait to meet you! *Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Each dog receives basic grooming when coming into rescue, but for some dogs they have not received grooming attention until recently and grooming may be required shortly after adoption.  This will be at the adopters expense, so we encourage you to research the breed and be prepared for grooming expenses. Underdog cannot guarantee hypoallergenic or non shedding qualities of any dogs in our rescue. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.     ***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.

Story
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.  Keep checking back for upcoming events I will be attending!       Hey there, I'm Griffin! I may be small, but I've got a big personality packed into this tiny frame. I'm always curious about the world around me and love meeting new people. My tail wags a mile a minute when I see someone new to snuggle up to! When I'm not busy making new friends, you can usually find me curled up in a cozy spot, preferably being held like a baby. Yep, I'm a total snuggle bug! I also enjoy playing with toys, especially empty water bottles and anything that makes a fun crinkly noise. Oh, and don't forget my trusty rope and nylon bone—I love a good game of tug-of-war! Although I don't need a fenced yard, I do love hanging out with other dogs. I'm friendly with pups of all shapes and sizes, so I'm sure to make fast friends when we go for walks around the neighborhood. Potty training is a work in progress and I will need more practice in my forever home. Sure, I might bark at unexpected noises now and then, but I promise it's just because I'm trying to protect my loved ones. And speaking of love, I've got plenty of it to share with my forever family. Whether you're having a good day or a bad one, just seeing me prance around will surely bring a smile to your face. I can't wait to be your loyal companion and make memories together! *I’m a growing puppy and I have not yet had a lot of experience with crates, kids or cats and I might bark if something alarms me, but I really love to learn and hoping for a family who will take me to a basic obedience class to continue to help me build confidence and dog skills. Ideally my forever home would need to be home during the day to help me with my potty training and not leave me for breaks longer than 3 - 4 hours. If you are looking for a best friend, please fill out the puppy application. The more info you include on the application the better so I can find a good match for my forever home. Get your toy box ready! **Obedience classes are required when adopting this puppy from Underdog Rescue. Many of our puppies have a mama who was not properly socialized before coming to Underdog Rescue. Since coming to Underdog, this puppy has been in a socialized and loving home, but that needs to be continued with its Adopters. Training classes teach puppies the ins and outs of being a pet while creating a bond with their new Adopter. Obedience classes are key to creating a relationship with your puppy while having it be a happy and successful member of society. Proof of Obedience Class registration is required for this puppy before adoptions can be finalized. If you would like some suggestions, we would be happy to send some trainers who have experience with Underdog Rescue, but a Basic Obedience class in your area should work! P lease note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders. Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Each dog receives basic grooming when coming into rescue, but for some dogs they have not received grooming attention until recently and grooming may be required shortly after adoption. This will be at the adopter’s expense, so we encourage you to research the breed and be prepared for grooming expenses. Underdog cannot guarantee hypoallergenic or non-shedding qualities of any dogs in our rescue. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit. Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.   This puppy requires an application fee. This fee must be paid within 24 hours or your application will be considered void.  We will not review or contact applicants that have not completed the payment portion. Puppy Applications will be responded to within 5 business days, after receipt of the application fee.  Please understand that paying the fee does not guarantee you will be approved to adopt the puppy. Our goal is place puppies in homes that are suited for their individual needs. You may be willing and able to provide a great home, but if it doesn’t meet the specific needs of the puppy, we will not approve your application. We accept applications for puppies until we have a candidate that meets all of the requirements needed for the specific puppy and they have been contacted to review the adoption process as well as agree to all of the terms to move forward. ***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.

Story
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.  I’m on the hunt for a very special loving home who is willing to work diligently with my confidence.  I’m extremely shy and am much braver on the outside than I am on the inside.  I love my kennel as I use it as my safe space.  When I feel nervous or unsure, I retreat there and hide. I’m very, very sweet and still learning all about receiving love and affection and I do like it!  I do enjoy hanging out with people but I also have a mischievous side when I think you’re not looking.  Away from home is hard for me.  I am so nervous and freeze with anxiety.  I will bolt if I get the chance.  So I will need a fenced yard as even leashes are new.  I am 99% potty training when on a schedule and am clearly crate trained, since that’s where I feel the most safe.  But I do know some commands like “sit, outside, go potty.” If you say “in” by my kennel, that’s when I know you want me to get inside.  So I’m super smart!  I would love to have another confident dog in my forever home to help me learn how to be a dog and teach me all the things.  You’ll find me to be loving, gentle, shy, sweet and absolutely precious.  But if you are patient enough to help me over my anxieties, I promise to reward you with all the love and affection you expect from a dog . *Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared.  Each dog receives basic grooming when coming into rescue, but for some dogs they have not received grooming attention until recently and grooming may be required shortly after adoption.  This will be at the adopters expense, so we encourage you to research the breed and be prepared for grooming expenses .   Underdog cannot guarantee hypoallergenic or non shedding qualities of any dogs in our rescue.   Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans.

Story
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.  Hi I'm  Candycorn !  I'm a beautiful lady who came into rescue with some secret cargo in my tummy.  I was a good mama and raised my babies and sent them all on to new homes.  Now it's my turn!  With new people and in new places I'll admit I get nervous and I either find a safe corner to hide in or I'll possibly bark.  At home with my foster mama where I'm familiar with things I'm a completely different dog.  I have the bestest happy smile, my tail doesn't stop wagging and I get the cutest dance and zoomies.  I gently jump against my fosters mamas leg so she can give me hugs and kisses.  Sometimes I kiss back!  When she stops I gently put my paw on her arm so she knows I want more.  I also love when she gives me chin and cheek scratches and I should probably mention tummy rubs are great too.     I get along great with all dogs and like to chase and wrestle when they're my friends.  I would do best having a doggie sibling in my new home so they can help me learn the routine in my new home and help me be more confident.     At home I am learning to walk on leash.  It's going great since I trust my foster mom.  It's fun jumping around in the grass and feeling the sun shine down on my face and the wind in my fur.  I haven't pottied on leash yet for her, but I do know that I should do all my business a fenced area so I do request one in my home.   I am kennel trained and I never potty in it.  I'm too smart for that!  I'm usually quiet in it too.  I know it's a safe spot when I need it too, though I prefer to be out hanging around my mom's feet instead.  When she's working I'm usually laying under her desk close to her in case she needs me.  You get treats there and pets haha!   I really like toys!  The soft ones are my favorite to chew on. I never had toys before rescue. I don't always like to share them, but I've learned mom will trade me for them and she'll gently play tug of war with me.     I haven't met any kids yet, but I think I'd be ok with older respectful kids who would be kind and gentle with me.  Fast movement and loud noises are overwhelming and I don't want to get scared and have to run and hide.  A quiet home where I can be a spoiled princess would be awesome.     Come and meet me and I promise you'll find that with a little time to learn that I'm safe and can trust you with my heart that you'll find a loving and loyal family member in me that will love you unconditionally! Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared.  Each dog receives basic grooming when coming into rescue, but for some dogs they have not received grooming attention until recently and grooming may be required shortly after adoption.  This will be at the adopters expense, so we encourage you to research the breed and be prepared for grooming expenses .   Underdog cannot guarantee hypoallergenic or non shedding qualities of any dogs in our rescue.   Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans.

Story
Braxton is a 7 year old Golden Retriever who traveled from Arkansas to Minnesota with a transport of 60+ dogs. Braxton was a breeder release, likely acting as a sire for litter after litter of puppies. He has now been neutered and is ready for retirement! Braxton came to our home at the end of January. On arrival, Braxton was very shut down and did not seem to have much socialization or interaction with humans.  It took Braxton about a month to start getting comfortable around our home. He can still be timid and startles easily at fast movements but he now follows us and our dogs around the house and has even been able to negotiate a flight of stairs on his own! Braxton is making slow but steady progress but will likely need an abundance of patience as he transitions into his future home.  Braxton arrived at No Dogs Left Behind very overweight, weighing 90 lbs at intake but is down to 75-80 lbs. The vet hopes Braxton can get to about 70 lbs.  Braxton is hoping to shed the extra pounds by summer so he can be beach-ready. He is now able to walk for two miles around the neighborhood and has shown no reactivity to other dogs. Braxton isn’t much of a puller but does frighten easily and will try to flee so a strong handler is a must as this big guy builds his confidence in new environments. In the yard, Braxton loves to roll around in the grass and chew on sticks, especially charred logs from the fire ring. He still hasn’t figured out fetch but he will sneak away with balls that the other dogs miss. Braxton is most playful when chasing a flirt pole and pounces around like a big puppy! Braxton is comfortable with the two female dogs in his foster home but does not understand how to play. He does like to watch as these two go nuts chasing balls and their frisbee. Braxton would do well in a home with a confident dog that can show him the ropes and teach him how to “dog.”  Braxton has done excellent with potty training on a schedule and has had no accidents since coming to his foster home. He is generally a quiet dog but now will occasionally bark excitedly at the door when we get home from work. Braxton sleeps on the floor of his foster parents’ bedroom and sleeps through the night without issue. Braxton sleeps at least 20 hours a day but this low-energy pup would still benefit from consistent exercise to support him getting to his ideal body weight.  Braxton is a sweet guy. He isn’t your typical ‘loves everyone’ golden retriever but we are confident that in time this lovable pup would make an excellent addition to your family.   Adoption fee includes: Full veterinary exam, Alter, Dental, Prepaid microchip, Dewormed, Rabies vaccine (if age appropriate), Distemper combo vaccine(s) appropriate to age, Bordetella vaccine, 4DX (over 6 months of age), Flea/tick and heartworm preventative while in rescue. Adoption fee: $450.00 Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.April 14, 2024, 9:06 pm

Story
Hello, my name is Bounty, I am better known as Bo to my foster family. I’m a Golden Retriever born 10/22/23. I have the softest most beautiful colored fur and adorable endearing eyes! I have endured through so much in my short life! When I first got here, it was discovered that at some point when I was very young, I broke my hip and it had healed poorly. Because of that, I had to have a pretty big surgery to my hip which I have been healing from for the last several weeks.  I have done great and bounced back wonderfully, but because of this, it has the potential to cause me to have future issues with my hips that my adoptive family will need to be aware of.  I have the sweetest, most submissive personality. My most favorite thing in life is to be with my people. I want to be right next to you, touching you, or in your lap at all times and will follow you around everywhere. I am the best cuddler you have ever met!  When I first came, I was so scared and shy and would not do stairs at all, but have come out of my shell so much and put that in my past.  Even after my surgery, I now go up and down the steps like a pro, but will hop up them with my back legs together like a bunny.  We are working on that with my foster family as they help me to regain the muscle strength in my back hips.  My foster family has a dog that has really shown me the ropes of what dog life should be like, he has made me so comfortable and we have become the best of friends.  My future family should have a well adjusted friendly dog for me to bond with and be my new best friend.  I am great in my kennel and will go in there willingly. Right now I go into my kennel during the day when my foster family is at work, but they have been leaving me out for short times when they run errands and I have done just fine.  I sleep in the bedroom with my family at night and sometimes they let me sleep on the bed. I do sleep quietly all night long until it is time to get up in the morning.  I am completely potty trained and have not had any accidents in weeks.  I will go to the door to let you know when I have to go outside. I love to gather things around the house such as the toys, bones, laundry, shoes, or kitchen towels.  I will not chew them, I just like to carry them around and will put them in my dog bed and lay with them.  It is adorable!  I am eager to please and listen to commands well, my recall is amazing and I am very good at coming when I am called.  You could also say that I am a pretty laid back guy, most times you can find me laying around enjoying the soft bed, blankets, or couch.  I do also like to chew on toys or bones and keep myself pretty occupied doing that from time to time as well.  I also love to lay and roll around in the grass and when there was snow, that was fun to roll around in too! I am fabulous on the leash and have been going for lots of walks and I love them. I get so much attention and pets from everyone that we pass, it is so fun.  I do love car rides and am the best passenger.   I seem to love all animals and people and have such a gentle, easy going personality.  If you think I would fit in perfectly with your family, I would love to meet you!

Story
"Daisy Requiers Another Confident Dog In the Home" Hello, I'm Daisy, a pup with quite a story to tell. My life began on a vast breeding farm, where the world was an endless cycle of sameness, the heavy chain around my neck a constant reminder of my purpose: to bring new puppies into the world for the farmer. It was a monotonous existence, but it was all I knew. Then, everything changed. Humans came and took me away from the only life I had ever known, and suddenly, I was thrust into a world full of terrifying new experiences. Living inside a house was a concept as alien to me as the moon. The sounds were so different – the scrape of chairs on hardwood floors sent shivers down my spine. I had never really interacted with humans before, and now they were everywhere, wanting to be close, to touch me. They were kind, but kindness was a language I was only just beginning to understand. I was always on alert, ready to bolt to safety at any moment. The floors were a patchwork of textures, some hard and slick, others soft and yielding, and I found it all very disconcerting. Leashes were another source of fear; they had only ever been used to control me harshly, so I despised them. Under the dining table, I discovered a sanctuary, a place where the world couldn't reach me, and it became my haven. Slowly, I'm learning to trust these new humans. They offer me treats, little tokens of a kindness I'm still trying to comprehend. But trust is a journey, and I'm taking it one cautious step at a time. They speak of a 'forever family,' a concept that fills me with both hope and apprehension. A family where I might finally learn what it means to feel safe and loved. Could you be the one to show me this beautiful new world? Could you be my forever family?     Dear Prospective Adopter, Daisy is a resilient soul who has been under our care for some time now. Daisy's journey has been one of quiet strength and gradual healing. She came to us with a heart full of fear, a spirit wary of the world around her. She spent 24/7 beneath our dining table, the only place she felt secure. Yet, through patience and gentle coaxing, we've seen glimmers of trust begin to emerge. Our approach has been one of small, consistent steps. We began by shifting her food and water, inch by inch, further into the room, encouraging her to venture out from her safe haven. High-value treats, like savory bacon, were scattered just beyond her reach, a tempting trail leading her to new ground. We tread lightly in her presence, our movements deliberate and unhurried, always mindful of her sensitivity. As we sit by her side, our voices soft, Daisy has started to accept our company. She shows a preference for the nurturing presence of women, though with time, she's learning that men too can offer kindness. Recently, she's discovered the comfort of a gentle touch, allowing slow, tender pets that speak of growing confidence. Daisy's needs are simple yet profound. She asks for a home where patience is abundant, where the echoes of her past traumas can fade into distant memories. A family with a calm presence, experienced in the language of dogs, would be her ideal sanctuary. A fenced yard would provide her the freedom to explore without the fear and chain that once bound her. Another confident dog, who could help teach her the ropes of being a dog.  While Daisy's road to becoming a cuddly companion may be long, the rewards promise to be immeasurable. To witness her transformation, to be the guiding light in her world of shadows, is a chance to forge a bond of extraordinary depth. We are prepared to foster her for as long as she needs, but should a very special forever home beckon—a home willing to embrace her as she is and dedicate themselves to her growth—we are ready to step aside to allow another family to write Daisy’s next chapter of recovery together. We hold onto hope for Daisy's future, a future filled with love and security. Perhaps, in reading this, you feel a stir within your heart, a call to be part of her story. Could you be the one to unlock the full potential of her gentle spirit? With hope, Daisy's Foster Family ##1891244##

Story
Hi, I’m Mak, a purebred golden retriever, and a bit of a goofball. I forget my size and will try to climb in your lap. I love belly rubs. My foster mom says I’m a very handsome boy and very sweet. I love attention from humans! I am an active boy who would love to have another medium to large dog to wrestle with and learn ‘big dog’ manners from as I can get excited and jumpy. I’d also love my Forever family to be active as I am an energetic boy. I love affection and toys. I kennel up like a champ and I’m a good boy! Could you be the one that will treat me like one of the family and shower me with love?   ##2005831##

Story
Buddy is a wonderful Happy Go Lucky Giant Puppy! He loves all people and other dogs and craves love and attention. Buddy was surrendered to a shelter when his owner fell sick. We believe the previous owner did not have much time to work with Buddy. While Buddy has a great disposition he needs some guidance , structure and manners! Buddy is a playful energetic pup who is looking for a family that will match his energy. He loves walks, runs and playing with other dogs. He will need a family willing to work with him and be consistent helping to teach him some manners. He has only been in rescue a week but is learning quickly how to behave and we are confident with more time and commitment he will only continue to learn to grow. While Buddy loves people and other dogs, his one fault being a little too much. Buddy loves to jump and hump as an outlet for his excitement. He can also get so excited he becomes a bit mouthy so for this reason would do best with families with either no children or older children. These two behaviors have improved so much in just one week, he is a very smart dog. A playmate that matches his playstyle and loves to play would be wonderful for Buddy as he is a great playmate, both respectful and submissive. If his adoptive family does not have another dog in the home that is certainly ok but it will be very important Buddy has a family who is willing to spend the time working with and exercising him!
