Hello, my name is Lola. I am a gorgeous adult female Shih Tzu who has sort of a goofy, clumsy, and unsure way about me. In addition to being part of the group, I enjoy playing with flat, floppy, crinkle toys, chewing on bully sticks, and eating beef cheeks. Though I’m still apprehensive, I have started trying new things like being petted and sleeping on a pad. I haven’t yet made it to the bed, but I just keep telling myself… “In due time Lola…in due time!” Hee hee!

I may still be a bit jumpy, but I am also one of those girls who is not afraid to speak up when I have something to say! I have not met any kids or cats and I am working hard at learning about the leash, crate and how to do my business outside. Thankfully foster mom is wonderfully patient, and she knows that these things take time, consistency, and loving encouragement. As long as my new family understands this too, I know will master all of it in no time! My new home will need to have a fenced yard to help keep me safe and a companion who will be able to not only keep me company but show me the ropes.

Well, that’s enough about me for now. I’m going to go nap on my pad and dream about the furever home I will hopefully have with YOU! Love, Lola

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 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.
