Hi there! My name is Myrtle. I am 13 years young and weigh about 12 pounds.

I am a BIG sweetie in a little package. Don’t let my age fool you - I act much younger and have many miles left on these paws! I am a friendly gal and a social butterfly. I get excited for walks and like to run so I can feel the breeze blow through my beautiful hair! I like to balance my daily exercise activities with relaxation and cuddling. I can be quite the couch potato and though I am not a huge lap dog, I DO love to snuggle up with my humans. Maybe we can watch Netflix together sometime!

I get along well with other dogs, but would also be content being the only dog in a family. I don't really have teeth and am really nice to other dogs. I like walks in the park and exploring the outdoors. Car rides are so much fun and I am always ready for an adventure!

I sleep well in a dog bed next to my foster mom’s bed and I do well in a gated area when my family is gone for the day. You will come home to no damage and a pup excited to see you! I am potty trained and can even do my business on potty pads if you leave them out with me! I am great with older children and adults. I even know some commands like “go for a walk” and “go in the car.” Yes, I am a genius dog.

A patient family who is looking to give a sweet senior pup a wonderful home is just what I need. A quiet home with little to no steps would be fabulous, unless you want to help me sometimes and carry me up and down them like the queen that I am! After living life in a commercial breeding facility, steps have been a challenge for me. They are just so weird!

I am a bit skittish and frighten by loud noises. I mean, the garbage truck and thunder storms are so scary, am I right?! A lot of my dog friends are scared of thunderstorms, too! I will often pace when I get nervous, but I want you to know that I am trying my best to be brave! I love following my humans around and getting attention and simply want a home to call my own. Especially if there are treats around!! I am a sweet little package waiting to take over your heart (and your couch!). When can we meet?!

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.
