Hello, my name is Mac. I am a ruggedly handsome adult male Pug who may be a bit timid and shy, but I allow people to pick me up and snuggle me whenever they want! Hint, hint!! For the most part, I’m a pretty low-key type of guy but I have my playful side too and will start running around to play chase with people or other dogs! I also like to chew on hard toys, pretend nibble on my people, and take nice long naps!

I have dry eyes that may require ongoing eye drops but that doesn’t hinder my zest for life! I am a very sweet boy who is coming out of my shell more and more each day. Foster mom is helping me learn about leash walks, but I do stop often…maybe exercise just isn’t my thing but mom hasn’t given up on me! I love exploring the house and backyard; following foster mom everywhere in the hopes that she’ll stop and realize that whatever she’s doing is NOT more important than giving me lots of love and affection…I’m just sayin’!! Anyway, I am crate trained but I will voice my discontent if I am left alone, and potty training is still a work in progress. I was recently neutered so foster mom and I both are hoping that will help alleviate my tendency to mark. I live with two small children and two small dogs with whom I get along well, I have not however, met any cats but I think I’d be ok with them since I’m so docile!

I know that foster mom is going to be very sad when I leave but she knows that my biggest dream is a furever home with an unconditionally loving family who promises to NEVER give up on me! Will YOU please be my new family because I cannot wait to begin my new life!! Love, Mac

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.
