Hi! My name is Roxy. I’m a 50-pound female cattle dog mix and am about 2 years old. I love all the humans I meet! I am not fond of the small dogs I live with, so I would prefer to be an only dog or find a home with big dogs like me. 

My foster mommy thinks that I’m too big to be a lap dog, but I disagree! I love to snuggle up in human laps if humans allow me to. I’m not a fan of the cold, so I would like to be inside most of the time. I love squeaky toys and hard chew toys. I love all the humans I’ve met, but I haven’t met young humans yet. I let humans know when I need to go outside to go potty, but I hesitate when they open the door and the cold air rushes in!

My furever home needs to have a fenced backyard because I get very scared and pull humans on the “leash.” I don’t require another dog in my furever home because I like all the attention I can get from humans (hee hee sorry!). I also sleep peacefully in my crate every night and only bark when I get scared. I’ve never met any fluffy cats before so I’m not sure we would get along. I love humans more than anything else in the world, I love being a sweet lap dog, and I love giving and receiving all the attention. I cannot wait until I get to know and love my furever family just as much as my foster family, even if I do have to share some of the attention. Thanks for reading humans! Love, Roxy.

Some of our dogs are obtained from commercial breeders where they spent their lives getting comfort from their canine friends. Others have come from various situations where they are lacking confidence in humans. In turn, most require another companion dog in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog, and do not currently have a dog residing with you, please understand that your home might not be the right fit for many of our dogs.

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.
