Story
A portion of my adoption fee has been sponsored by my friends at The Murray Fund. The adoption fee sponsorship credit of $100.00 will be applied during the contract process. Hi! I'm Buddy and I am an owner surrender. I am deaf, but that doesn't stop me from being an amazing boy! From the Foster: Photos and Videos of Buddy: https://photos.app.goo.gl/uvmNj7g9YXB925CU9 Buddy's dream day would start and end with head scritches and belly rubs, followed by a walk to sniff around a quiet neighborhood, fueled by lots of treats. He'd then take a long car ride on the highway, return home to more head scritches and belly rubs, and enjoy chewing on a bone in his bed before a nap. He's used to having a human companion around for most of the day. He does all right for up to 4-5 hours alone, though if there is food accessible to him, he will find it and eat it. He's a loyal guy who will love his people well and do his best to protect you from squirrels, postal carriers, dogs on the TV, and package delivery trucks. He's friendly towards people, and very food motivated. He's a senior dog who knows what he wants and will communicate it. He's had to navigate some health challenges and can be a bit stubborn or crabby about being unable to do what he wants. Buddy would do best as the only pet in a quiet home, with someone who wants a loyal companion for daily walks, and time together. We have yet to make formal introductions to any other dogs or cats, when we encounter them in the neighborhood, he has a big bark and is learning how to be less reactive. Buddy would do best in a house with no shared walls.

Story
I am Tyler. I am from Missouri. From the foster: Tyler (aka Ty or TieDye) is a very sweet, curious, almost one year old puppy! He's from Missouri, has the cutest little beard and a crooked tail that he still wags very happily! He's high energy at times, with the occasional zoomies, but he also snoozes a lot throughout the day, chews on his bone for long stretches, and loves to snuggle in and watch a show. He loves any kind of ball and plays "soccer" with both his foster brothers who are eight and twelve years old, who adore him. He also loves going on walks and does pretty well on a leash. He does fine with slower walks, but also appreciates going faster as well so may do well with a jogger or runner. He is working on not pulling with excitement when he sees other dogs on his walks. He does great in the car and loves riding along to pick up kids or run errands. He wants to be friends with all dogs and humans, including kids. He needs more socialization with other dogs as he approaches them with a mix of curiosity, hesitation, and not knowing what to do. He can be quite vocal and cries when he sees other dogs that he really wants to play with, and is working on sitting and calming down. He plays well with his best neighbor doggy friend, so will likely do so with other dogs as well with continued socialization. Tyler knows and responds well to "sit", "stay", "come" and "leave it". He is house-trained and sleeps well through the night, in bed with his current foster, without needing to go outside. During the day, he does crates well for short amounts of time after some initial hesitation and resistance, and will at times go into his crate on his own when he's super tired. Ty loves to give kisses and can get a bit mouthy when seeking attention, and will need to continue to work on that. He's also working on not jumping on people when he's super excited to see them. He'd do best with family with older considerate kids based on this. He seems to have a bit of a sensitive tummy with new foods, and has done well with a mix of dry and wet dog food (Pedigree as introduced by his first foster) and treats in between meals, including the occasional blueberry. Tyler is a VERY good boy, and such a lovely, active family dog! He's stolen his current foster family's hearts, and they are sure you'll fall in love with him as well once you meet him!

I am Oreo. I am from Arkansas. From the foster: Hi, I am Oreo! I am an amazing puppy and super smart too. My foster family has been working with me and I have learned a lot. I know a ton of tricks that I have learned really fast but I need some better rewards when in distracting areas. Now that it is getting warmer I love walks. My family is working on leash skills with me and I am pretty good at it but still need work. I am doing really well with potty training and barely ever pee in the house as long as I get let out regularly. I am proud to announce that I am crate trained and can last up to 7 hours if needed but prefer it to be shorter, otherwise I have a ton of energy! Toys, especially ropes, are my favorite and I absolutely love to play with other dogs. I can be a pretty lazy puppy sometimes and love to just chill on the couch with my people, too. I love all people, and enjoy being with them all the time. I enjoy playing with them, being next to them when chewing my bones, and being by their side in the kitchen. Hoping I can do some of that in your home too! From his foster: We have learned that Oreo likes to have dog friends in the house with him. While not completely necessary, he loves to play and will be thrilled if there is a dog to play with all the time.

Hi My name is Dawson. I came to rescue from IL. I originally came as possible hospice due to unique needs but after being monitored by our vetting team , they said I was a perfectly happy boy and I though I have some limitations, with proper check ups, I am graduating from Hospice to be a special Adoptable dog. From his foster: Dawson is bottled joy. He is the sweetest baby, perfectly content just to be in your company. He loves to play, and does so gently. He does beautifully with other dogs and kids. He absolutely loves the water! He would do well with a fenced in backyard with lots of turf where he can run around around--he still has some puppy energy to burn off! Dawson is all heart. He is a darling, darling boy, sweet and full of love. He needs a home that can provide him space to run around comfortably, due to his condition. He loves spending time outdoors, but walking on pavement isn't the most comfortable for him, as he tends to walk on his joint. He loves running on turf or a beach and, of course, being in the water. He is quite agile, despite his condition! He also loves the occasional massage or extra scratches, especially in the areas he can't always reach :) From his temp foster: Dawson is an almost-one year old, medium sized dog, who is transitioning from hospice to special needs adoptable! He has scoliosis (a permanent curve in his neck) and a poorly positioned front leg that his crooked neck pushes forward. He uses his "bad leg for balance and walking, but it does make him have a little limp. Dawson runs and plays like crazy. You can hardly tell that he isn't a normal dog! He does pant all the time, sometimes even when sleeping, but this has been worked up by the vet team and found to be normal for him. He loves his dog friends, and has not been around cats or kids but may do fine with them. He does stand on his back legs and rest his front legs on people or furniture, so he may accidentally knock over small children. While he will go in his kennel willingly, he hates to be stuck in there and will bark constantly; he is often left out when we are gone or overnight, and we haven't had any issues so far. No stairs for Dawson- too difficult with his funny leg. Dawson is a complete delight. In the five weeks I have been fostering him, I have seen him learn how to swim, chase butterflies and stop to look at the sky any time there is a bird or a plane overhead. It has been incredible to watch him learn about the world and enjoy it for all its simplicities. He has, in turn, offered unintentional but gentle reminders for me to do the same--be present and enjoy. Dawson has an early wisdom, but also a contagious curiosity that reminds you he's still a puppy. He loves to play; he loves to be around people and other dogs. He enjoys a car ride and a road trip, where he can continue to look out the window and metabolize the world around him. At the end of the day, he is content to be wherever you are. He is a lovely, lovely dog, loyalist and companion and truly already a better person than I will ever be. From the Vet: Hi! I am Dawson and as you can see from my very cute, wonky self, I have some special needs so I will be looking for a special home! At a young age, my spine started growing in a curve pattern and I was later diagnosed with scoliosis. My caretakers at the rescue didn't know for sure what my quality of life would be like or if my condition would worsen over time. As a now 1 year old pup, we can confidently say and I really don't know I am any different. While the scoliosis causes me to get around differently ie. I can't always run as fast or get up stairs as easily as my friends, I am still stable and happy always! Amputation of my front right leg had been discussed as an option just due to the fact that it could have been getting in my way or causing issues since I can't rely on that side as well as I can my left side. Its not as strong and mobile, but its not causing any issues and I do use it to help me stabilize myself at times so that procedure was determined not to be needed. My respiratory rate was a concern in my previous foster home, but they took a good look at my lungs on x-rays and no issues there! My future home should be prepared to accommodate my unique mobility requirements, but really most of all I hope you love lots of kisses and hugs. Those are my favorite! I can't wait to meet you and find my forever home!

Story
Hi! My name is Hope and I am from Minnesota. From the foster: My foster mom tells me everyday that I'm the best girl ever and I try to be humble but I really do think I'm the best! I'm a pretty simple girl and all I really need to be happy is a ball, a bone, my people, and of course my pup cup from Starbucks. I'm pretty much down for whatever from long walks, to going on adventures, to swimming at the lake, hanging at a brewery, to even laying on the couch binging Netflix with you all day if you had a late night out. I like to be outside and active, but I've also learned from my older foster sister that naps are important and she has taught me the art of relaxation. When my foster sister isn't being lazy we love to play tug of war and wrestle. I would love another dog to play with but I also like my solo time. I don't think I would be cool with a cat, they seem too fun to chase. When it comes to people, I love them, but at first I'm a little unsure. I probably will ignore you at first, but I promise that doesn't mean I don't like you! I just like to sniff from afar. Once I realize that you smell pretty good, I love to get belly rubs and cuddle in your lap(yes, I'm still a baby and always will be). When you leave the house, I prefer to hangout in my crate. I like to take naps in there or chew on a bone while you're gone. While I sometimes free roam and don't destroy anything, I get a little sad to see my foster mom go and I feel safer in my crate. I also like sleeping in my crate at night and typically take myself to bed around 8:30. I, of course, won't decline an invitation into the bed though. I am fully potty trained and wait by the door and whine when I need to go out. I also am a genius and love to please my person so training has been a breeze. Did I mention I can even play the piano? I think what really makes me the best girl is my big heart(literally and figuratively, see below), my goofy personality, my funky ears, and my calm nature. I can't wait to take on life's journey with you. You can never have too much Hope. From the Vet: Hi! My name is Hope and I have been in rescue for a while figuring out some stuff in regards to my heart murmur. My initial exam showed mild enlargement of the heart along with the finding of the murmur. After 2 echo cardiograms having been pursued with TBB's cardiology specialty partner the murmur is caused by a residual backflow of blood across my heart vessels. The enlargement of my heart is not clinically significant at this time and the pacemaker of my heart seems to be sending messages appropriately and is keeping things as in sync as they possibly can be. I will not need any medications going forward and am set to be adopted as is with no further cardiology work up needed other than my annual vet visits. My future adopter should be in tune with my baseline as I should always be monitored for increased respiratory rates or labored breathing and seek appropriate care if necessary. I hope to see meet you soon and settle in to my forever home!

I am looking for a foster or forever family! I need a new foster before July 1. Please email fostersupport@thebondbetween.org to sign up to foster! Select the "Apply for Adoption" if you would like to adopt Hi! I'm Buck. I'm from Kentucky. From his foster: Buck is an affectionate loving dog who enjoys belly scratches and gives lots of kisses. He currently lives with a cat and does very well with him. He has interacted with other dogs, but does shy away when they come up to him, slow introductions are best. Buck is getting used to noises since most loud noises do startle him. He thoroughly enjoys his walks on a leash but will require a bit more training as he has a tendency to pull and do circles around you from time to time. He enjoys following us humans around the house to make sure we are not getting into trouble. Buck sleeps in bed every night and does great, although he takes up the entire bed. His favorite thing to do is be outside but beware, he would chase squirrels, rabbits and birds all day if you'd let him. Buck is potty trained and house trained. We are still working with Buck as he is anxious and shy around new things but he has done better and better since the first day.

  Tinsley is a beautiful pup with freckles and beautiful black eyeliner around her eyes. She currently lives with cats and dogs. Tinsley can be slow to warm up to new people and would benefit from a confident dog in the home to help her build confidence. Once she knows you, Tinsley will snuggle on the couch with you, seeking belly rubs like she’s been there her whole life! Tinsley loves the lake, and has slowly learned to retrieve a ball in it. She get so excited when she actually gets it runs for shore like she won the lottery! She thinks kids are cool, but older kids would be safer because Tinsley will slip right out the door if you are not careful; she really loves adventures and thinks she can leave to go exploring whenever she wants. A family that takes her on intentional adventures may be a great fit and help reduce some of her wanderlust… A little back story on how she came to rescue- She and her female canine companion were surrended to a sheter in TX. We don;t know the why, but Tinsly was pregant. She waited long enough in the shelter waiting for a home, that she gave birth to her two male pups.She came to MN a week later with them and raised them in a foster home. They have since been adopted. Now its her turn! ##1749383##

Hey! I am Ed. I am a 4 month old german Sheppard/hound/lab, super mutt mix. I am such a friendly, sweet boy and super good at drop it, leave it and sit when asked. I also know down, out, and go potty, these are my newly learned commands so I sometimes need a hint on what it means. Give me a little time and help and I will learn how to do oh so many things! True to my ancestor Hound roots, I can be quite the talker when I want something and I almost never bark. I LOVE to play with other pups, big and small and also had oh so much fun running and playing with the kids. I love to take walks and I would love to go on adventures with you. When it’s quiet time, my favorite spot is cuddled up next to you. I am doing well with potty training. As smart as I am, I am sure I will have this mastered very soon my.

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.    DOB:  08/08/2018 Requires another dog in home: No Okay with dogs of all sizes: Yes Okay with cats: No, has high prey-drive Okay with children under 12 years old: Older, respectful kids, yes Weight: 58 pounds Requires a fenced yard:  no, but working on leash training Note: dogs must always be leashed whenever outside of a contained area Hello, my name is Ivy. I am a lovely young adult female Lab/Shepherd mix who loves eating all treats (who doesn’t LOL!!), tearing stuffed toys apart, sleeping and hunting squirrels. Foster mom says I am in charge of the backyard activity and do my best to keep the squirrels out of the yard. I would love a fenced in yard to explore, but also love going for walks, so it's not required as long as you promise we can take some short walks each day! As you have probably already figured out, I have a high prey drive, so small kids and cats are not a good fit for me. Ok, truth be told, I don’t “hunt” the kids, just the cats but still, I am not crazy about those quick moving kids.  If they were older and respectful, I think we would be besties! I am very friendly with people, but I am a bit wary of dogs that I meet on my walks. I sometimes growl and bark at the neighbor dog or if something alarms me. However, I do fine with other dogs if there is no barrier between us and I have gotten along with all the dogs who have come to visit my home. My mom fosters other dogs and has friends that visit with dog, and we all get along great. I am crate and potty trained and working on leash training. At times I am a bit loud when on the leash and will yell at other dogs. Although I enjoy pulling on the leash, foster mom is trying to help me learn that she is the leader on our walks not me…she’s so silly, she doesn’t know me at ALL!!! I am super smart girl! I know what to do when mom says “sit,” “stay,” “come,” “outside,” “go potty,” and “off.” Alright, if you REALLY must know, I learned the “off” command because I tend to jump on people when I get excited…I mean c’mon, seriously is it really that bad?? Mom has made it clear, by saying “off” and gently using her knee, that jumping on people is frowned upon in this establishment.  Anyway, mom says that I “must have had training before” because I am the “easiest foster” she’s “ever had” and that’s quite a compliment! But I would really benefit from additional training to continue learning new things like safe leash walking and maybe some tricks! My trip from a Texas shelter to MN was an adventure. When I arrived in MN my friends at Underdog discovered I was heartworm positive and I have finished the treatment and now I just dream of finding a furever home with a patient person who will shower me with unconditional love and will not give up on me. If you are looking for a wonderful companion who can’t wait to snuggle on the couch or bed, then we need to meet. I promise I will love you more than you can imagine!! Love, Ivy.   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. 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. 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.

Welcome Picasso to CCPAL Rescue. He is a 2 year old Lab/Rottie or Shepherd mix. He is 2 years old and weighs about 50 pounds. He is good on a leash and friendly with other dogs. He loves water and loves to play in the hose water when the kennel is being cleaned. He loves his kennel and will stay in it even when the door is open. He met Apple and Serenity while on leash and was not leash reactive. He was all smiles and tails wagging. He is vaccinated and neutered and looking for his forever home. He would be fine as a family pet. We like the children to be 8 or older. The nice thing about an adult dog is their personality is formed and you know what you are getting. He has some skills like kennel training and leash walking. We know he isn’t leash reactive and was friendly when meeting new dogs. He is currently in Texas and can be adopted locally. We can work with one of the wonderful transporters to get him to Washington, Portland (Oregon), Minnesota, Vermont or all along the East Coast. His adoption fee is 300 and transport is 200. Rhode Island and Massachusetts are not states we adopt to because of the regulations imposed by these states. Contact Marlene at 210-867-1769 or email ccpalinquiries@gmail.com if you have questions.

Welcome Cowboy to CCPAL Foster Program. Cowboy is an 6-month old pup. He has an adorable and large head. I call these man dogs because my husband loves them. He weighs about 37 pounds now but we think will be 50 full grown. He is a Lab/Staffie or Pittien or maybe Rottie is our guess. He does know the sit command and is attentive when you are directing him. He has a nice amount of attention and it is not too short but he can hold it while you work with him. He is adorable, affectionate and has the cute wrinkles on his forehead that make him look concerned. He has brown eyes and a little white patch on his chin that look like a milk beard. He is the typical puppy and is energetic, inquisitive and in need of direction. He is willing to learn and takes direction well. He already knows the sit command. He has a lower or shorter coat and not a big shedding dog. He would be great for an active outdoorsy type family. Now he will settle down and his energy is not over the top. It is a good amount of energy for an 8-month old puppy. He is getting his vaccinations and will be neutered soon and ready for his forever home. He is good in car rides, good with cats and decent on a leash. He is fine in a crate and moderately vocal and will use his voice to get attention. He would be fine with children. He is not overly mouthy. We like the children to be 8 or older. He is in Texas and can be adopted locally or we can work with one of the wonderful transporters to get him to Washington, Portland, Minnesota, Vermont or all along the East Coast. His adoption fee is 400 and transport is 200. Rhode Island and Massachusetts are not states we adopt to because of the regulations imposed by these states.

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.          Hey there, I'm Tina! I'm a Lab/Terrier mix, bursting with puppy energy and affection. Whether at home or out exploring, I'm all about spreading joy and wagging tails wherever I go. At home, I'm a playful and loving companion. Sure, I might be a tad shy around big groups, but put me in a room with a few friendly faces, and I'll warm up in no time. Meeting new people and furry friends is one of my favorite pastimes—I'm always up for a good playdate! Now, let's talk about my hobbies. I'm a big fan of outdoor adventures, especially if it involves running around in a fenced yard. But don't worry, I'm just as happy going for walks on my leash. I'm still learning the ropes, but with a little guidance from my four-legged pals, I'm getting the hang of it! When I'm not exploring the great outdoors, you can find me snuggled up with my favorite humans. I love a good scratch behind the ears, a game of tug-of-war, or sinking my teeth into a tasty bone. And let's not forget my love for stuffed animals—anything that squeaks is a winner in my book! Speaking of training, I've been making some serious progress. I've mastered the art of sitting, and I'm eager to learn more. Plus, I'm doing great with my crate training and getting the hang of potty training too! I can’t wait to show you how smart I am when we go to puppy school! So, if you're looking for a sweet, spunky pup to join your family, look no further. I'm Tina, and I can't wait to bring some puppy love into your life! *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! 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 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.  T his 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. 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.

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!
