Hello, my name is Pecan. I am a beautiful and sweet adult female Pomeranian. I have a luxating patella in my left knee and possible arthritis in my right knee. In addition to continued monitoring I will not only need to be lifted on/off furniture but will need to keep my girlish figure in check with some regular low-impact exercise and a healthy diet. 

Anyway, I voice my displeasure if left alone or something alarms me; I don’t like commotion/loud noises like squeaky doors, vehicles driving down the street, or silverware clanking on dishes; and I get nervous in new places or around new people. However, despite my fears and knee issues, I am a cheerful, bouncing, bundle of energy who loves life!! My favorite activities include chewing on Himalayan yak sticks; finding my food in snuffle mats/food puzzles; prancing around with stolen socks (hee, hee); eating treats like cooked salmon, boiled chicken, cheese, Greek yogurt, and hotdogs; getting groomed; and following foster mom everywhere in the hopes she’ll hold me like a baby and give me belly rubs or simply let me snuggle in her lap! Truth is that mom finds it impossible to resist my adorableness especially when I wave my little hand for more tummy rubs! Hee, hee!!

I have not met any kids and due to my small size, I don’t think they’re a good fit for me, but I do enjoy playing with dog-savvy cats who won’t scratch or attack me, and other like-sized dogs. In fact, I need to have a doggie companion at my new home and since I don’t have much leash experience, a fenced yard would be great too! I am a smart little lady who knows what “sit” means and I’m working on “down” and “come”. I am also working on potty training, and I do well if I am on a consistent schedule. Luckily mom works from home and takes me out every few hours. That said, I do still dribble a bit if I’m excited and I ‘mark’ when exploring new rooms in the house or in a new place. Additionally, I go potty in my kennel/crate if I’m in there for more than a few hours. Therefore, I think it’s safe to say that my ideal fur-ever family will be home with me most of the time. Oh yeah, I almost forgot… although I will sleep in my kennel, I prefer to sleep in the bed with my human…I’m just sayin’!!

All I need now is the fur-ever home I SO richly deserve, with a patient family who will love me unconditionally and NEVER give up on me! I really am the sweetest girl ever and I would love to spend the rest of my life with YOU!! Love, Pecan

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.
