I am Dolly and I am new to our rescue. I am about 9 months old and such a pint-sized sweetie. I've got the best of the Shih Tzu world - I love to give kisses and cuddle. And I have the spunk and fun personality of a Chihuahua - attention is one of my favorite things and I love to be spoiled. A family or individual is home a lot would be ideal for me. And one with children 10 years old or older.
I follow the the lead of other dogs and will need one in my furever home to thrive. Another mellow dog would be best! And if you have cats, that's fine by me ! I have a lot of love to give and though I am a little shy of strangers, I do bond with and look up to my humans.
Exploring the yard is a lot of fun and I am so excited to have my own yard some day! If you don't have one, let's make sure to get outside every day and have adventures together. I recently learned how to walk well on a leash and love going on walks with the guidance of my foster brother. Toys, treats, car rides and naps are incredible. Play with a toy. Eat a treat. Go on a car adventure. Take a nap. Now, that's what I call a good day!
I am working on potty training and mostly go outside on a schedule. I am still a puppy and am doing my best to learn fast! Sometimes I bark when I hear noises or see a squirrel, but overall I am a quiet gal. Let's see what else am I missing...? Oh, yeah! I need eye drops twice a day in my left eye due to dryness.
As you can see, I am quite the gem and ready to add a little sparkle to your home!

Many of our dogs are rescued from commercial breeders where they spent their lives getting comfort from their canine friends. In turn, most require another companion dog in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a particular dog, and do not currently have a dog residing with you, please understand that your home might not be the right fit for many of our dogs.

Please understand that all of our pets are in 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 email us to confirm attendance.

To fill out an online adoption application please visit 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 952-929-0777 or email us at for more information.

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.
