Hi – my name is Gibbs and I’ve been told that my breed – German Short-haired Pointer – doesn’t come into rescue as often as other breeds.  So, I promise not to disappoint!

If you don’t know much about my breed, please read up on it.  We are very smart, active, shed and have the ideal nose for hunting things.  I’d be great at obstacle or obedience training.   I enjoy playing fetch and I have a stuffed bear that I am BFF’s with. I adore my humans and will follow you everywhere.  I sleep on my dog bed all night right next to yours, just in case you need me. 

I’m good with kids, other dogs and am also kennel and potty trained.  I know basic commands for “sit” and “kennel”.  I go for walks almost every day and do well but if I catch a scent, you should know I might pull you to hurry up and get there.  So maybe no kids should walk me until we know they won’t drop my leash when I am searching for a squirrel.  No cats please, as I have a high prey drive.

I can be an only dog as long as you are home most of the time. I would appreciate an active family that will spend time with me. For a smart dog, having adequate mental and physical stimulation is important. If we went to training together I know that I will be a great student and we could learn so many things together!

 I will look outside and see a squirrel or a rabbit and bark, so be mindful if you’re on a Zoom call!  Despite wanting to chase critters and having prey drive, my people said that I didn’t do well with loud noises so I wouldn’t be the right fit if you are looking for a hunting companion.

All I need now is a forever family that is ready to go on adventures together!

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.
