Holy cow!  My life is brand new and I LOVE it!  Now my last mission to accomplish is to find my furever home, and let me tell you … I’m quite the catch! While I am an amazing and good boy, I haven’t grasped what the traditional toys are for yet, as I’m having too much fun making  my own along the way.  For example, I like to play hockey with my water dish.  Pretty clever, right?!  In the past few weeks, I'm gaining interest on those squeaky things, so we can keep having fun while I learn!

I’m a social guy who loves people, dogs and new things – I’m not really bothered by much. I’ll follow you around the house, just in case you need a super hero. I enjoy going for walks (where of course, I meet new people and pets) and heck, I’ll even spy on the neighbor through the fence.  You know, maybe they want to come see me and pet me – hee hee! 

I enjoy the outdoors – sitting in the sun, walking (I might need better skills here but let’s GO!) and supervising the block.  Foster mom told someone: “He’s the perfect example of typical male Frenchie personality – sweet and loving but curious with a dash of sassafras!”  I’m not sure I agree with that assessment.  All I was doing was telling her to “hurry up” with my dinner. 

I’m really close with my potty training – so keep me on a good schedule and I know I will be a success! I can use a leash for potty so no need for a fence in my forever home.  And if you promise to be home most of the time, I can be an only dog.

I do admit that I will bark during the day when I’m in a kennel by myself – not if you put me with another dog though. I’m just too social to be solo. I will bark if I am separated from my people in that kennel thing, but foster mom now puts me in a gated off area in the kitchen and that solved that! I like to be out an about, what can I say!? I keep it clean in there, so foster mom says this is a good compromise for us both! I sleep by myself in the kennel all night near my person just to throw a twist in my patterns. 

Here’s a summation from my foster: “Bolt is just a super dog.  Calm, confident and just wants to be with his person.  I can’t say enough good things about him.  He’s been an easy and lovable addition to the household.  Even my 9-year old female Frenchie likes him and she’s tough to please!”

All I need now is a furever family of my very own! I can’t wait to meet you!

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.  

Bulldogs are a member of the Brachycephalic breed and therefore have a host of health issues that may arise.  Because these dogs are new into our rescue, health issues in the future may arise that we are not aware of.  Some of these issues are allergies, eye issues, yeast infections, interdigital cysts, slipped disks in their back, breathing problems, among a host of others that can occur at any time or when seasons change. While breed experience is not required, we encourage you to thoroughly research the breed and its financial, medical, and environmental needs to be sure the breed is a good fit for you and your family.  It is estimated that the average bulldog owner spends $2,000 per year on medical needs.     In addition to normal pre adoption surgeries, Bolt also had surgery on his nares and soft palate to improve the quality of his breathing. This is reflected within his adoption fee.

Bulldogs are one of the most expensive dogs to own, maintain, and rescue and our adoption fees reflect such expenses.  The application process for bulldogs usually moves quite quickly as they are a popular breed, so we ask that adopters do research and be prepared for adoption at the time you submit your application.  They are happy, goofy, playful characters and we are excited you are taking the first steps into rescuing one!  

This dog 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. Bulldog 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 bulldog. Our goal is place bulldogs 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 bulldog, we will not approve your application.

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.
