Hello, my name is Dolly. I am an incredibly beautiful adult female Havanese who is very timid and shy. I am a beautiful girl with the softest coat, just waiting to feel comfortable so I can show you my sweet personality.

I need to be adopted with my friend Cosmo. He is a happy friend that has shown me how to trust people and be comfortable in my surroundings. We are a package deal and hope you can find it in your heart to keep us together.

I am a very timid girl that doesn’t mind spending time in my bed or a comfy spot watching what is going on in the house. I am fearful of loud noises like commotion and thunderstorms. I’m also very leery of men, children, being touched, picked up or having people near me. I guess it’s fair to say that I’m suspicious of people in general. I have not met any cats, but I do however enjoy spending time with other small doggies like me.

We are doing great going outside on a routine, but I have not had a lot of experience with that leash thing so my new home will need to have a fenced yard to keep me safe.

It seems there is only one thing missing from my life right now and that is the furever home that I so richly deserve with a patient family who promises to love me unconditionally, not give up on me and who will help me learn to trust. Love, Dolly

  *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 at the top of each dogs animals' as their foster home signs up. Check back for updates on which events they will be attending. If an event is not listed within their bio above, the animal is not planning to attend.  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. We recommend filling out an application and we will set 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, but each bio is written by the foster as they see them, in their home. Each animal's behavior is evaluated and we have a sense of its temperament and personality, but it cannot be guaranteed. We look for adopters who will give each animal the wonderful life and permanent home that he or she deserves in time and with patience.  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.
