Hello, my name is Meyli! I am a beautiful, very curious, and playful young adult female Shar Pei who loves to keep my family laughing with all my silly antics! Hee, hee!! I have started showing some interest in toys and like to collect them. I also enjoy a good couch snooze, occasionally running zoomies, napping, exploring a fenced yard and going on car rides with mom to work. I am a very sweet and funny girl who is getting more comfortable with home life every day and I love meeting people especially when treats and pets are involved! Hee, hee!! Sometimes I can be a little reserved when meeting new people, but don’t worry, I know we will be friends soon.

The food that I am thriving on is Nature’s Logic. I think I might have allergies or something because I have itchy skin so, although I love eating all kinds of treats, I need to make sure I’m eating quality food/treats. I also need frequent baths with special shampoo and may possibly need some supplements.

I should mention that I bark if something alarms me or if I’m left alone for too long, and I don’t like a lot of traffic noise. Hopefully my new home is in a quiet neighborhood because I walk ok on the leash if it’s quiet AND I have my fur sibs with me, but I do NOT do well in busy areas and I’m by myself. My people are working with me on some quirks – I am not the biggest fan of walking by parked cars or mailboxes – some of these things are new to me and I just don’t know what to think! We are also working hard on walking through doors – I get a little worried so we will need to keep practicing in my forever home. We are working on leash training and I like to pull and explore everything so I’m kind of a meanderer. Hee, hee!! When we go on walks with another dog I do great and understand “going forward” so having another dog in my forever home is important so I can keep gaining confidence.

I love playing with other dogs and need to have a playmate at my new home. That said, I am a bit of a klutz and sometimes forget how big I am so smaller dogs (or kids) might not appreciate my playful exuberance…I’m just sayin’! Hee, hee!! I also meet a cat when I was visiting someone and would likely be fine with a dog savvy cat in my forever home. Anyway, I do my business outside and although I usually sleep with foster mom, I’m ok in the kennel/crate if I’m near mom’s bed or my doggie companion is nearby.

I am such a lovingly sweet girl and all I need now is YOU…a patient, Shar Pei-savvy fur-ever family who will love me unconditionally and NEVER give up on me! I promise that I will love you bigger than the sky and I assure you that we will make the most amazing memories together! Lots of kisses, Meyli

*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.
