Hi! My name is Canasta and my foster mom says I am the cutest little scruff she has ever seen. I LOVE my humans and am always looking for loves and pets. I nuzzle into my foster mama's neck and rub against her like a cat. Oh and I love a good neck scratch but who doesn't?  Don't be fooled by my lovey nature though- I am a busy girl who loves to be active. I can be a little bossy with other dogs but foster mom says I am a good listener and take correction well. I like to guard the water bowl from my foster siblings...oops..hehe but I am learning that isn't nice. I am doing amazing with my potty training and run into my crate for bedtime like a champ. I also walk like a dream on a leash and will even potty while on a walk. Like the true terrier I am I excel at being a watchdog. I always alert mom when a rabbit or squirrel is too close to our house- isnt she lucky to be my foster mom? If you're looking for the perfect tiny girl to guard you from bunny rabbits I might be your soulmate!

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.
