Fall has arrived and I’m ready to fall in love with my forever family.  I’m currently residing with my foster parents and two fur siblings that are just like me (Cav’s).  So I tend to learn from them and sometimes that’s a great thing.  For example, I’m learning to go potty outside (not perfected yet but they’re working on it!) 

I’m a lover of attention and would like nothing more than to be your lap dog!  But I don’t jump on or off the furniture but love for you to lift me up for the love.  We can be binge buddies!

I typically latch on to my person and follow them around.  I’ll follow the other dogs too, just in case they are going to have a treat or play – I don’t want to miss out!

I’m doing great at leash walks (foster mom thinks I walk a tish too close to her but sorry, not sorry).  And I am crate trained.  In fact I even eat in there and when I’m done, I’ll bark to let her know I’d like a refill, but she usually just takes my dish.  Can’t fault me for trying!

Speaking of barking – yeah do that when the other dogs do just to see if we can harmonize.  Haha.  And when you return home, or when foster dad gets home from work, I will sing happy songs in a barking tone.  I won’t be mad if you give me some watermelon, blueberries or green beans for treats either.  I’m healthy that way.

I’m a favorite because of my cuddle skills.  So get your arms and lap ready!  In fact, get my spot on the bed ready because I love to share that with my foster parents too.  Xxxooo, Claire

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 th eir 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.
