Hello, my name is Lala, I am a beautiful adult Mini Doodle who is very timid and scared of almost everything from commotion, loud noises like thunderstorms, fast and/or unexpected movements, getting surprised, stairs, and even being outside, but I am desperate for love and gentle affection!

I have never picked up a toy, but I love eating, gnawing on bully sticks, being slowly caressed, and I am head-over-heels in love with my 2 feline foster sibs. I have only been away from home a few times because my body freezes whenever foster mom puts a collar and harness on me, so my new yard will need to be fenced to ensure I stay safe. Truth is, I’m scared to be outside so mom always needs to carry me in and out. I have slowly become more comfortable walking on the floors, but stairs are still a no-go!

Underneath all this fear and anxiety is an incredibly sweet girl with a HUGE heart that’s overflowing with love! All I need now is a fur-ever family with whom I can share it all. My perfect family will be an extremely patient one who not only promises to love me unconditionally and NEVER give up on me but will also allow me the time, space, understanding, and encouragement to overcome my fears. I promise I’m worth it and if YOU rescue me, I assure you that I will rescue you right back!! Love, Lala

**Grooming - this dog's coat may have been neglected before arriving at Underdog and it can sometimes take months to get their coat healthy as poodles and poodle mixes require daily brushing.  Grooming appointments occur every 3 months and cost on average of $150 per appointment. Adopters should be prepared for such expenses. Underdog Rescue cannot guarantee the non-shedding or hypoallergenic qualities of this dog.

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:   

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.

 

ADOPTION PROCEDURE:

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 http://www.underdogrescuemn.com/contact-us/ if you have further questions.

 

FOSTER CARE:

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  www.underdogrescuemn.com/foster-applications  and fill out a foster application.

 

NUTRITION:

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.
