Hello, my name is Choco Taco. I am an adorable and loving adult male Havanese who is one happy, playfully goofy, and funny guy! I have not met any cats or kids, but I am great with people and other dogs. In fact, I really hope to have a canine playmate at my new home who will keep me company, so I don’t get a case of the lonley’s! Hee, hee!! 

Anyway, I have no real interest in toys, but I have other favorite activities like exploring outside, going on leashed walks, rolling around on my back, relaxing with my thoughts, sleeping on the bed with my people and other dogs, eating food and treats, and being held and getting loves from my people!!!  I do not like, and I will voice my discontent if I am left alone. BARK BARK! I mean I am a VERY important part of the family, and I should be with everyone else…not to mention that I always like to be amid all the goings on around me!! Hee, hee!! I am a super smart boy too who is always eager to please! For example, I am crate trained and although I enjoy eating in there, I prefer to be out with the rest of the family once my dinner is complete. I also know my name and will “come” when mom calls me; I know how to navigate UP the stairs but recently mastered going DOWN them …both inside AND out (I am clearly a prodigy); I can jump on/off the furniture; I even know what “up” and “off” mean.  We are working on other commands right now, including "sit" and "stand".

I am such an amazingly loving little guy who is simply looking for a furever family who will show me patience, understanding, TONS of unconditional love and most importantly, will NEVER give up on me!! Are you ready to share your love and life with me because I am more than ready to share mine with YOU!!! Love, Choco Taco

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.
