Hello, my name is Jericho and I am a work in progress. I am a young and usually quiet adult male Terrier mix who is fearful of many things, but working really hard to overcome those fears and my reaction. I will quiver when I have the leash on, and I need some personal space until we learn how to interact. When I get worried, I sometimes fear-bite/nip but when you think about it…doesn’t that kind of make sense?? I mean, if YOU were faced with something that terrified you, I highly doubt you would sit back and do nothing. I am quite positive that you too, would have some sort of reaction and since I can’t speak…biting/nipping is really my only way to communicate my fears. Anyway, I am trying diligently to overcome these fears and have even enlisted the help of a personal trainer so between them and my foster parents I am coming along nicely. I even stayed with my trainer for a few days and mom and dad said that when I came back home, I was SO different and much less afraid! YAY ME!!! So, you can see that I truly am trying extremely hard and although it has been very tough, I’m not giving up!! I have made HUGE progress, but I will need a family who is respectful of my boundaries and WILL continue my training once I get to my new home. 

While that all might sounds overwhelming - I promise with calm leadership that I will do my best to be your buddy. I love to share snacks with my foster mom - if she is eating an apple, I like to gently rest my paws on her knee and give her adorable puppy eyes and she can't help but share with me! We like having a little snack time everyday together. It gives us an opportunity to talk about our day and have some quiet time. 

I have not met any cats, but I LOVE to wrestle, play, do zoomies, and run, run, run with other doggies. In fact, I will need some playmates and a fenced yard at my new home so I can get some good exercise since the leash is a no-go for me right now. Foster mom says I have so much potential and is excited to see me make leash progress with the trainer.  Truth is, not only am I in heaven when I’m playing with my canine buddies, but I also hope they will help me overcome some of my fears. When I’m not playing, I enjoy napping on foster dad, cuddling on the couch, asking for/getting pets, and eating ice cubes! I will even come running when I hear the ice machine! Hee, hee!! I don’t mind meeting new people, but I do keep my distance from them. I am potty and crate trained but mom and dad rarely put me in the kennel anymore because A). I am not a destructive boy, and B). I need to be with people so I can learn to trust them.

All I really want out of life is to be unconditionally loved and NEVER given up on. I truly don’t think that’s too much to ask do you!?! I didn’t think so. If you are looking for an amazing cuddle companion who will be your best friend for life, then I would LOVE for YOU to be my furever family! We can continue my training together and make unforgettable memories that will last a lifetime! Love, Jericho

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.

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.



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 if you have further questions.



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  and fill out a foster application.



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.
