Hello, I’m Hunter, a dapper and quiet adult male German/Australian Shepherd mix who is the sweetest pup in the neighborhood. Not only am I not picky about my treats but I will do anything to get one (hint, hint) and have been known to show off my best puppy-dog eyes in the hopes that my people with share some of their scrumptious goodies with me. Now, as much as I love treats, I love nothing more than being with my people wherever they go!! Sure, I enjoy playing with stuffed toys, but love and affection is what REALLY gets my tail waggin’! Everything from pets, belly rubs, head scratches, and cuddles are like magical elixirs that transform my whole day!! In fact, I melt into a puddle of joy when I’m showered with my human’s love! Yes, I may weigh 55 pounds but it’s 55 pounds of pure, nonjudgmental, unconditional love that in no way stops me from climbing right up into my person’s lap for a nice long snooze or to watch some TV! Food I am currently thriving on is Nature’s Logic Distinction.

When I’m not cuddling, I enjoy going on leashed walks with my family and exploring this beautiful world. From the park to the lake shore, every new sight and smell fills me with excitement!  My foster mom is happy to report I am doing an excellent job with exclusively going potty outside.             I am still working on learning commands like “sit”, “stay”, & “come”, but I’m a smart, well-mannered boy who is not only kennel/crate trained but I’m eager to learn more! Oh yeah, I almost forgot…remember when I said I’m the “sweetest pup in the neighborhood? Well, it’s totally true! I am a popular social butterfly who is a master of making friends! I’m good with kids, always respectful of cats, and great with dogs of all sizes. The truth is, I believe that life is all about spreading joy and happiness, and I’ve found that my friendly ‘woofs’ seem to make everyone feel welcome to enter my circle. 

There you have it, I'm Hunter, the tail-waggin’, affection-loving, treat-adoring, adventure-seeking, friendship-making expert who is simply looking for patience and unconditional love from a fur-ever family that promises to NEVER give up on me! I assure that I’m worth it and both of our lives will be SO much better if we share them together so let’s get started!! Love, Hunter

*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. Each dog receives basic grooming when coming into rescue, but for some dogs they have not received grooming attention until recently and grooming may be required shortly after adoption.  This will be at the adopters expense, so we encourage you to research the breed and be prepared for grooming expenses.  Underdog cannot guarantee hypoallergenic or non shedding qualities of any dogs in our rescue.  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.
