Hi I'm Stephen!  I'm a handsome young boy who is friendly as can be.  I'm pretty sure that everyone wants to be my best friend and honestly why wouldn't they want to be?  I'm generally pretty chill.  I do adore attention!  The head scratches, body rubs and belly rubs are just the best.  I do sometimes forget my manners though and will gently jump up for a hug.   My foster mama just hugs me back and gives me kisses which I will return.  I enjoy walks outside and feeling the wind in my hair and the sun on my face.  I'm always a good boy when I'm getting brushed and never complain.  I'm not super food motivated, but I'll gently take a treat if I want it.  I prefer praise for being a good boy!  I'm good I'm my kennel though I sometimes give a few barks when I want out.  Generally I lay down and nap in it though.  So far I've been great about potty training with no accidents.  I'm good with all size dogs too from giants to littles.  If you have a doggie friend for me great, but I'd be just as happy being your spoiled only dog.  I know you won't be able to resist my charms when we meet!

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.
