Hello, my name is Gregor. I am an incredibly handsome young adult male Poodle with the most beautiful big brown eyes anyone has EVER seen, and they will totally melt your heart! I am calm and sweet but VERY shy and startle easily especially with loud noises and commotion, I will even run away if I know foster mom is going to pick me up. Ya know when people say “He’s really stand-offish until you get to know him”. Well, that’s me to a T! I am a shy guy period, and it takes quite a while for me to trust people and let my true personality show. I know this makes it difficult to make a quick connection with me but it’s who I am! Maybe YOU’RE like me, and you understand where I’m coming from. I guess I’m just one of those loner type because even at the dog park, I may go say hello to another dog but then I’m right back to sniffing and exploring. 

Anyway, I am a docile boy who has yet to meet any kids or cats, but I am good with other like-sized dogs. I will need a confident and social companion at my new home who will not only help me feel comfortable enough to come out of my shell! I am crate and leash trained, and I LOVE going outside so much that I get super excited when I know it’s potty time, I even know what “go potty” means. Thankfully foster mom takes me out every 2-3 hours and when I’m done outside, I love zooming up and down the hallway. By the way, did I mention that I am a dog park aficionado? Oh, I didn’t…well I am. In fact, the quickest way to my heart is a nice long walk or a visit to the dog park…better yet how ‘bout a nice long walk TO the dog park! Hee, hee!!! I love the dog park because I can be off leash to roam freely and explore therefore, a fenced yard at my new home would be AMAZING!!! I am not picky when it comes to treats and although I don’t ‘play’ with toys per se, I do love to stockpile them by my bed. What I DON’T like are car rides, they make me so nervous my body trembles and I drool.  I know, it’s not attractive but there’s nothing I can do about it. Hee, hee!!

I really am a total sweetheart who is slowly but surely getting braver every day. All I need now is a calm, quiet fur-ever home with a patient family who will not only love me unconditionally but who is committed to helping me reach my full potential by talking to me calmly and allowing me my space. I assure you that I will NEVER give up on my people and I simply expect the same in return. Honestly, I don’t think that’s too much to ask, do you? After all, Rome wasn’t built in a day nor are amazing relationships let alone in a single meeting am I right!?! So, if you will give me a chance and welcome me into your life, I promise that in time, I will love you more than you could EVER imagine!! Love, Gregor

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.
