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 Morty, the charming Maltese on the lookout for my forever home. Let me give you the scoop on what makes me special. At 7 pounds and 7 years young, I may be small, but my personality is mighty. I'm friendly, curious, and playful—always up for a good time! Despite my luxating knees, I don't let it slow me down. With a little extra care and some glucosamine, I'm ready to tackle life head-on. I'm a social butterfly who loves making new friends, whether they're furry or not. Playing with other dogs and even cats? Count me in! Squeaky toys are my jam, and I'll happily gather them in my favorite bed for a play session. Plus, I'm a foodie at heart—I'll devour treats, fruits, and peanut butter like there's no tomorrow. While I may not be a fan of the kiddos under 12, I'm still working on mastering the art of potty training. I'm a quick learner, though, and with a little patience and consistency, I'll get there in no time. At night, I sleep quietly in my kennel, but I might get a bit chatty when I hear someone stirring in the morning. Now, about those stairs—I'm still getting the hang of them. I prefer homes with minimal stairs to spare my precious knees, but don't worry, I don't mind being carried. And if you lay out a trail of rugs on those slippery floors, I'll be forever grateful, especially in the kitchen where I love to supervise meal prep. In a nutshell, I'm cute, snuggly, and full of personality. I adore cuddling on the couch and striking my best playboy pose when you want to scoop me up. So, if you're ready to open your heart and home to a furry friend like me, let's make it happen! *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.  Hey there, lovely humans! I'm Mellie, the delightful 6-pound Maltese on a mission to fill your life with love and joy. I am really hoping to find a furever family that will help me come out of my shell and help me with my anxiety.  Here's the latest scoop on all the wonderful things happening in my world: I've been busy spreading love at my foster home, and I must say, I'm thriving! Bedtime is my favorite, and I've earned the title of "bed bug." Lately, I've started showing that I can be playful and have been engaging in some furry fun with both dogs and cats. Guess what? I've discovered a newfound love for soft foods and treats. Yum! I'm becoming less anxious and not pacing in circles as much as I settle into my foster home. As we all are, I'm a work in progress. Loud noises and overwhelming commotion can make me a bit uneasy, but hey, who doesn't have their quirks? Potty training is a team effort, and I'm giving it my all and will need to practice more in my furever home. Accidents? They happen, but I'm getting the hang of things. I'm all about that furry companionship, so another doggy friend in my furever home is a must for me. A fenced yard is also required for my safety. Barking isn't my thing, but I'll chime in occasionally in the crate or when a stranger is around. Cats? I'm respectful, maybe a little too eager to play, but I take my cues seriously. Timid, loving, and mellow – that's me in a nutshell. My flowing hair is a testament to the beauty growing within and around me. If you're home more often and looking for a laid-back, low-energy companion, I'm your girl. Cuddles, playtime, and companionship – I've got it all to offer. Ready to make me a part of your heart and home? *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.

Please fill out an adoption application found at haydudeequine.org Gabriella (Gabby) - You are the bridge between what was and what will be, my pathway to a new life! The name Gabriella often is associated with someone that is calm, strong and independent, a homebody and trustworthy. Yep, I'd say that kinda fits me real well! Affectionately dubbed Miss Gabbers or Gabby, I am a shy sweet gal that is looking for my fur-ever home. It may take a tad bit for me to acclimate and show off my happy side but once I do then you'll get the privilege to see my butt wiggles and happy hops! I enjoy long naps and snuggles with the other foster pups AND tummy rubs are a favorite once I get comfortable with you. At 2 years and around 30lbs I'm well out of that puppy destructive stage...BUT I does love destroying Amazon packages and cardboard is my enemy!! Not a chance that any evil boxes will sneak past me. :) Other then boxes, I'm pretty chill about life, just enjoying my spot with lots of sunbeams to take my naps! I does loves the other foster pups and am totally in love with the cat. A home with other 4 legged siblings for me to feel comfortable and take my cues from would be most beneficial for me. I am house and crate trained. I love my crate and with the door left open will use it for naps. I would do best in a quiet home with my person either retired or that works from home where I can get lots of one on one TLC. With a patient family that will give me the time and space I need along with some gentle words and kind pets, I will show my true beautiful nature. If you're looking for a low maintenance companion that enjoys the quiet life, I just may be a perfect companion to complete your family!!
