Hello, my name is Flynn. I am a very sweet albeit shy senior male Australian Shepherd who likes to steal toys and sneak them into my kennel. Now, full disclosure…I have no idea what I’m supposed to do with them, but they keep me warm and make good kennel companions! Hee, hee!! I also love snacks like peanut butter, eggs, apples, and popcorn…but none of that microwave stuff…real popcorn!! Hee, hee!!

I have not met any cats or kids and I am fearful of commotion, sudden movements, and people in general, so I don’t think young kids are a good fit for me. I also do not like loud noises like thunderstorms, vacuums/carpet cleaners, or sudden sounds from outside and I will holler if something startles me. I have very limited experience with larger dogs, but I am protective of my resident fur sib. In fact, when foster mom picks him up to put him on the furniture, I must run over to ensure he’s safe! Hopefully my new home will have a companion for me and a fenced yard where we can safely frolic and explore. I could use more leash experience, but I know what “outside” and “go potty” mean and I’m potty trained when on a schedule. Oh yeah, I almost forgot…foster mom not only allows me to sleep in the bed with her, but she appreciates my adorable warning signs if I hear something and the gentle way I wake her up if I need to go outside. Honestly, there are no words to describe my adorable noises, but they crack her up and making my people smile is my goal in life!

All I need in my now is a patient fur-ever family who will love me unconditionally and NEVER give up on me. If you’ll welcome me into your life, I promise I will love you to the moon and back. Once I feel safe and become acclimated to my surroundings, I really am the sweetest boy EVER…seriously, foster mom’s seen it! Hee, hee!! Love, Flynn

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.
