My name is Aster, and I am looking for my forever home.  I am an adult Boxer and I weigh about 56 pounds.  I understand that’s a bit too lean for a girl my size, so I’m working on gaining about 10 pounds.  I’m not your typical bouncy Boxer.  All I knew before coming to my foster home, was how to be a good mama.  I’m a bit timid when it comes to all the new things I’m experiencing.  I really don’t like riding in the car, but I have learned how to walk down the stairs!  I am learning so much about being in a house - I am a potty training champion and doing great on a routine  and haven’t had any accidents in the house.  I am willing to go potty on a leash and I am good at walking on a leash too, so my forever home doesn’t require a fenced in yard as long as we get enough exercise on our walks.

 

Foster Mom isn’t sure how I will react to cats because I haven’t met any while I have been living here.  I do love the company of other dogs and they really help show me confidence and how to be a dog.  I feel safe in my crate, so I spend a lot of time in there.  I have a fluffy lamb toy I like to keep by my side when I am relaxing or sleeping.  And I really like to sleep in front of the mirror….  who knew?  I came into Underdog with some allergy symptoms which are clearing up nicely, but my forever family should just know we still need to clear some of that up. With good food and some vet care, things are improving greatly - which is fantastic!

 

So far, I haven’t barked at all and I mostly keep to myself.  But I want you to know that when I do open up, I want to be by your side and hug and kiss you all day.  I just need a forever home where my people will be very patient as I learn all that this big new world has to offer and learn to trust you.  

 

I think I’m going to love you,  Aster

 

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.
