Hi! My name is Irma and I’m just a sweet corgi gal looking for someone that will give me snuggles and lots of love. In return, I promise to protect you from strangers with a bark or two and bring you countless smiles! I’m a very relaxed and calm girl around the house, but I do like to alert you if there is something exciting going on outside. I love napping, getting pets, chewing on bones, and playing with any dog pals around!

I would love having another dog buddy to show me the ropes as I am a little shy. And having a social and friendly dog in my forever home will give me confidence and help me get on a routine. I haven’t met any cats, but I’m sure I’d do okay with them, too. I’ve made canine friends of all sizes, but I think I’d do best with someone about my size. I’ve had some of them try to cross my boundaries, but I’ve let them know, with just a little bark, that I don’t appreciate it. I’ve never gotten angry, though. I prefer to be goofy and silly, doing whatever I can to make you smile.

I’ve been learning lots of new things, including “come” and the word for “outside." Best of all, though, have you ever heard of this thing called “snuggling?” I’m just learning about it and I’ve found I REALLY like it! I love to snuggle with you or just be near you. I’m not too clingy though and I enjoy going to my crate whenever I need to nap by myself or when it’s time to sleep for the night. I like going outside to do my business, except when it’s raining, or snowing, or I’m tired -then I make my foster mom carry me out – hee hee! She says it’s not too hard because I’m a petite girl, weighing only 20 lbs. I really enjoy my foster’s fenced in yard, so if you have one of those, that’d be great!

I’m looking for a calm place to relax, as sometimes loud noises and lots of commotion make me nervous. So if you think you’re the person to give me a calm place to get to know you, I’ll show you all the love in the world. Are you that person? Then why don’t you reach out to Underdog so we can figure out if we’d be a good fit.

Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.

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.
