Don’t mind me but I’m a little bit nervous and afraid.   I’m not sure of things, as there have been so many changes in my little life.  I’m really sweet but although I’ve made some strides in my foster home, I have a long way to go and will need someone who can provide me with lots of love and patience. 

Because of my trepidation, I have been watching from the back of my kennel and need a loving guide to come out.  My foster mom has wrapped me in a blanket and talks to be to reassure me that I’ll be ok, all the while she pets me.  I’m don’t enjoy being picked up yet, so please be patient. 

I’m on the smaller side for a Boston, so foster mom puts my canned food with some yogurt on a plate and slides it into my kennel to eat because I’m too afraid to come out.  I won’t even take a treat yet even though I might want to eat it.  But please keep trying because I’m just wanting to know I’m safe and loved.  I’ll come around (on “my” timeframe).

I don’t know what toys are for yet either.  Until I have enough confidence to come out and be brave.  So while I observe in here, would you be so kind to give me lots of blankets?  They give me comfort.

You might need to physically carry me outside to go potty because I don’t know what you want when a leash is on me and makes me afraid all over again.  So I’ll need a fenced yard so I can go to the bathroom on my own and so I don’t run off.

I’m also hoping (and needing) you have another confident dog at home to show me what being a dog is.  I’m good with women and kids but men make me nervous also.  Well, if I’m honest, life makes me nervous. 

What my biggest hope is, is to have a someone with lots of love, time and patience to watch me grow and blossom into the wonderful dog I’m destined to be.   

**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.
