Hi I'm Papi!  I'm a tiny little guy at just 3.5 lbs.  I might be little but I've been showing my foster mama that there's a big personality in me.  I'm working on being brave right now and I am bravest with my doggie friends.  When with them my beautiful tail wags and I prance around and smile and I'll even give my foster mama a little sass.  When there's a little barrier between us like an xpen I even kiss her fingers!  Since my doggie friends make be feel more relaxed I do ask that my forever home have one for me to learn how I can continue finding my true self.  I prefer small dogs that don't jump all over me and give me a bit of space.  I'm doing well with being held and I'm content cuddling into my foster mamas lap.  I've heard her say I'm a natural lap dog.  I think that's a good thing.  Anyway, I'm learning about things like potty and kennel training.  I'm doing pretty well on both.  I don't like that cold snow stuff outside so I tend to do my business as quick as I can do I can get back inside.  I haven't tried leash walking yet but I know one day I'll be the cutest thing ever walking by your side in the sunshine living my best life.  I just need a little patience and someone to love me as I blossom into the fine young man my foster mama sees in me.

I’m a growing puppy and I have not yet had a lot of experience with crates, kids or cats and I might bark if something alarms me, but I really love to learn and hoping for a family who will take me to a basic obedience class to continue to help me build confidence and dog skills. Ideally my forever home would need to be home during the day to help me with my potty training and not leave me for breaks longer than 3 - 4 hours. If you are looking for a best friend, please fill out the puppy application. The more info you include on the application the better so I can find a good match for my forever home. Get your toy box ready!

**Obedience classes are required when adopting this puppy from Underdog Rescue. Many of our puppies have a mama who was not properly socialized before coming to Underdog Rescue. Since coming to Underdog, this puppy has been in a socialized and loving home, but that needs to be continued with its Adopters.  Training classes teach puppies the ins and outs of being a pet while creating a bond with their new Adopter.  Obedience classes are key to creating a relationship with your puppy while having it be a happy and successful member of society.   Proof of Obedience Class registration is required for this puppy before adoptions can be finalized.  If you would like some suggestions, we would be happy to send some trainers who have experience with Underdog Rescue, but a Basic Obedience class in your area should work!

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.  

This puppy requires an application fee. This fee must be paid within 24 hours or your application will be considered void.  We will not review or contact applicants that have not completed the payment portion.

Puppy Applications will be responded to within 5 business days, after receipt of the application fee.  Please understand that paying the fee does not guarantee you will be approved to adopt the puppy. Our goal is place puppies in homes that are suited for their individual needs. You may be willing and able to provide a great home, but if it doesn’t meet the specific needs of the puppy, we will not approve your application.

We accept applications for puppies until we have a candidate that meets all of the requirements needed for the specific puppy and they have been contacted to review the adoption process as well as agree to all of the terms to move forward.
