Hello, my name is Mitch!  I’m a sweet and silly mini poodle.  I’ve been so busy learning about the good life.  I am still a little skittish but boy-oh-boy, do I love some affection.  I crave attention but I’m still learning people are good. I LOVE it when my people give my scritches and snuggles. I do a little wiggle butt dance in front of foster mom until she gives me some attention. Once I get to know my people – watch out because I have so much love to give! Hopefully my forever family loves some snuggles when we snooze!   

While there are so many new things I’m experiencing, Loud noises and overwhelming commotion are scary to me, so I hope my forever home is able to be patient with me as I explore all there is in this new world. Foster mom says that I am a very brave boy and she is so excited to see me show my silly personality.  I have even started to play with toys – my favorite ones are the crinkly ones! I also like a nylabone and other chew toys. Yum!

Because I’m working on leash training, I don’t necessarily need a fenced yard.  I enjoy walking but will need more practice when the weather warms up.    I am a potty-training super star and am great going outside on a routine - even in the cold weather! I will need more practice in my forever home, but with a good routine I know I will be a success! I’m being crate-trained, so if you share a common wall with a neighbor, be mindful that I sometimes bark when left alone or kenneled. 

I’ve learned so much from the other dog in my foster home and that has helped me learn about all the wonderful things so a home with another dog is required as this is who I will learn from the quickest.  Another social, friendly and confident dog will show me how to trust people and help me get on a routine.

All I need now is a forever family with lots of patience, unconditional love and a spot for sweet little me next to you on the couch.

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.
