Hello, my name is Felicity and I am a pretty, sweet and timid female shih tzu. I am a very polite girl and working on being brave with the people in my foster home.

My favorite things to do are to be with my pack – this includes the other dogs in the house and my foster people. I like to follow my foster mom when she goes out to the yard. I do enjoy being outside in the yard with the other dogs laying in the sun and following them around. I am quick about going out to the yard to do my business – I am great at following the other dogs in and out. We are working hard on a routine so foster mom calls me a work-in-progress for potty training. I am not leash trained so will need a fenced yard in my forever home.

When we are inside, I like chilling near the other dogs and following foster mom around. She might do something exciting and I am learning so many new things and don’t want to miss out. Recently I started letting foster mom hold me like she does with the other dogs. When it is dinner time I get excited and bark – I really like meal time and am such a happy girl!

We are working on so many new things and them most helpful thing has been having another dog in my foster home to show me the ropes and help me get on a routine. Another dog will be great for my confidence, and I know I am good at follow-the-leader.

Anyway, foster mom says I am such a sweetheart and is very proud of me for learning new things and learning how to become a dog. She says I am the cutest little girl when I am excited and crawl on my tummy to greet her. I really wants nothing more than to find a patient and unconditionally forever family who is looking for an amazing companion! Love, Felicity

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.
