Hi, my name is Jimmy I am 60 pounds of happy! I am a senior, meaning I have experienced in a lot in my life, but have a lot left to give.

My friends at Underdog Rescue all me their true Underdog! I came to MN from a Texas shelter during the deep cold and team Underdog made the commitment to start working on a healthy new me! I spent a few months getting heartworm treatment – which means spending a lot of time in my crate and lounging around the house. I learned how to be a champion napper and really love my crate! Now, all the pesky heartworms are gone and I am ready to find my forever family!

My foster mom is the best and sweet talks to me, she says I am the best senior dog and knows that I love getting pets, leisurely walks, naps, carrots and destroying anything with stuffing. I’m not going to keep it a secret from you – but once I decide I want something watch out. I have been known to counter surf and get into things I shouldn’t and sometimes unexpected. Foster mom says I mostly do it when I am stressed, so would do best with a tidy house and predictable routine. I also need to mention that my vision is slightly impaired so I would do best in a home without small children, or children that are dog savvy when playing with me – sometimes I don’t notice little hands when we are playing with toys together.  

My friends at Underdog have made a few guesses about me while I have been in their care. They are guessing I am about 11 years old and guessed I was a shepherd Texas mutt… but guess what?! My foster mom did a DNA test and I am 50% pit bull and 33% golden retriever. As you would expect with a pit/golden mix, I am eager to please, loves training and am very social. I am calm around other dogs and mostly ignore my feline foster brothers, except when those annoying meow’y cats bite my wagging tail, then I sit down and glare at them! If being happy and wagging my tail is wrong, then I don’t want to be right – cats are so judgmental.

While I love other dogs, I don’t need one in my forever home but would be fine in a home with other animals of any size. I also don’t need a fenced yard as I am leash trained, but I would need to make sure my forever family takes me out regularly for potty time.  Something else you need to know about me. Not only am I a good looking fella, but I also look fabulous in hats! Additionally, I am also a sensitive guy and eager to please so need someone that can commit to positive reinforcement and tell me I am handsome everyday!  

Well, that’s enough about me for now as it is nearly naptime. If you are ready to welcome an amazingly sweet, loving and dog that looks great in hats – then I am your guy!! I am ready to share my life with someone who promises to love me unconditionally! I promise that you will be amazed at all the love I have to give and I can’t wait to meet you! Love, Jimmy

ADOPTION EVENTS:   

Adoption events are updated as the foster home RSVP's to attend. Check back for updates on which events they will be attending. 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. You may wish to consider applying and setting 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:
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. Each animal's behavior is evaluated and we have a sense of its temperament and personality. We look for adopters who will give each animal the wonderful life and permanent home that he or she deserves. 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.
