Story
You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website. Meet Homie! This awesome pup is all about agreeability and silliness. With the kindest eyes that sparkle with joy, he’s a sight to behold. And let’s not forget about his squishy cuddliness that just adds to his charm. Homie is a calm and composed companion. He’s eager to please and always ready to bring a smile to your face. Homie is a dog who should fit into this adoptive home with ease. He’s adaptable and ready to find happiness wherever he lands. If you’re looking for a companion who’s just a bundle of joy, Homie could be the perfect fit. His sparkling eyes and playful nature are sure to brighten up your day every day! Homie is from Texas.  One big thing you should know is they are heartworm positive - but please don’t let that scare you away from adopting them! After they undergo treatment for their condition they will be completely healthy again, and heartworm is not a contagious disease. Because they need treatment, they are available exclusively through Ruff Start’s Foster to Adopt (FTA) program. Click here to learn more about this program. They will get heartworm treatment at one of Ruff Start’s partner veterinary clinics in St. Cloud, so their foster will need to be comfortable getting them to and from the appointments. Treatment will consist of three injections: the first will be roughly 30 days after they enter rescue. Then, the second and third injections will happen 30 days after the first. When they are undergoing treatment, they should be on activity ‘restrictions’ which just means they should relax in their crate or cuddle with you.   Click here to learn more about heartworm disease, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. If you are interested in getting to know this animal better, please fill out an adoption application. An adoption application is the best way to show your interest in an animal and is not a binding contract. To learn more about Ruff Start’s adoption process and the care our foster animals receive, please visit our How to Adopt page. If you are unable to adopt but want to help this animal and others in our care, you can   donate   to support the medical and veterinary needs of all Ruff Start Rescue animals.     Visit this organization's web site to see any additional information available about this pet.June 21, 2024, 5:00 pm

Story
Hi, my name is Bella!  The first thing you should know is that I will follow MY human everywhere. If sit down, I will sit right beside you and cuddle any chance I get. Oh, and I like to help keep the house clean- I'm told this is one of my best features. For example, if we’re outside and the ground is wet when we come inside, I will wait for you to dry off my paws before I go walking through the house. I also spend the nights in my kennel and not complain. In the mornings sometimes you’ll hear me like a tiny alarm clock waking you up, but I’m not very loud. I also know that the first thing we do is go outside. But this is where I have a little bit of trouble because, although I know to use potty pads in the house if I have to go, I don't aways remind my foster mom to take me outside... except in the mornings! My foster mom does this really weird crazy dance outside when I actually do go potty and it makes me laugh. I love being outside when the weather is nice, especially when it means going for walks with my human. I really just want to be with you and when I'm out in the yard without structure, I get a little too caught up with all the things around me. My foster mom says I bark at the wind. Together, we are working on that and I am trying really hard to bark less. If we go for a walk, though, I’m much more focused and I enjoy seeing all the things there is to see, plus it's great bonding time!  This is Bella‘s Foster mom and I would recommend that Bella be the single dog in a household. She is currently fostered with my resident dog and she shows no interest in socializing. Bella will play by herself with her own toys, but does not engage with my dog at all and tells her to go away if she tries to come around to play. She also prefers a quieter household with no children. It does seem that some sudden movements still spook her which does cause her to snap at you a little bit. The potty training has been coming along a little slow, but she is progressing very well. She was obviously trained in her previous life to use potty pads so I think going outside is just a new experience. She does great in her kennel and sleeps through the night or if you prefer, she is a great bed partner as well. All in all, it has been really fun having Bella here. She has the softest fur and most beautiful big brown eyes and just wants to be with you any chance she gets. When she gets that burst of energy and she wants to play, she will grab her toy and just run through the house like a little mad woman and you can’t stop laughing. She truly is a little spitfire ##2008779##

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.  Want to meet me? I will be at Nautical Bowls (5013 Ewing Ave S Minneapolis, MN 55410) for an Adoption Event on Saturday, June 22nd 11:00 am-12:30 pm. Please email inquiries@underdogrescuemn.com for questions regarding the dogs.   Hello, my name is Charleston! I am a dashing, calm, and very sweet senior male Shih Tzu who loves to sit on foster mom’s lap while she works. I’m not really into toys but I enjoy watching TV, sleeping in bed with mom at night, and I LOVE to eat food and treats, especially popcorn… YUUUMMM! Oh yea, I’m quite the dancer too! It’s true, in fact, I think my moves are better than Fred Astaire’s and I like to show off my dancing prowess whenever I want a treat or to be lifted onto the couch. By the way, I also did great at the groomer but then who doesn’t want to look all spiffy am I right!?! Anyway, I do not like being left alone and I hate the kennel/crate! As a matter of fact, I will bark in either of those situations so hopefully my new family will be home with me (and doesn’t have shared walls!). I am, however, good about doing my business outside on a schedule; I do well with the leash; and I’m great with kids, cats, and other small dogs like me. All I need now is YOU…a patient, unconditionally loving fur-ever family that will NEVER give up on me. I’m a patient guy with a wonderful soul and a heart that is brimming with love that I want to share with you! I really hope you’ll be my new family…I assure you that life will be MUCH better if we share it together! Love, Charleston *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.

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 Derby! I'm a 4-year-old female Shih-Tzu, weighing in at a perfect 15 pounds. I'm the epitome of calm and laid-back, and I absolutely love to snuggle up with my favorite blankets at home. Once I get to know you and trust you, I'll be your little shadow, happily following you around wherever you go. I am timid and shy when approached, but getting braver everyday. One of my absolute favorite things in the world is food—it's the quickest way to my heart! I'm doing great with potty and crate training – a little treat bribery helps! I do have a few fears. Thunderstorms, loud noises, children, and overwhelming commotion can make me quite anxious. Because of this, I'm not good with children under 12 years old and would do best in a calm, quiet home. We are working on leash training, but because I am fearful it would be nice to have a fenced yard as I need more practice with my outdoor explorations. I don't need to be placed in a home with another dog, but if there is another dog, I prefer smaller ones. Most importantly, I need my humans to be home most of the time because I thrive on companionship. I'm extremely sweet and lovable. Though I might be skittish at first, once I trust you, I'll show you just how loving and affectionate I can be. If you're looking for a calm, food-loving, snuggly companion who will adore you endlessly, I'm your girl!
