Hi! My name is Vela. 

I am an energetic, spunky and silly pup. My curiosity guides to me all sorts of explorations and often my silly antics makes everyone laugh.  

I adore humans. I LOVE to snuggle and am very loyal. I am even more loyal if you give me banana or cheese. Yum! Bones are also yummy and I could chew on them all day. 

When I am not searching for morsels of food or snuggling with my hoomans, I love playing outside. Outside is my favorite! Oh, and did I mention how smart I am!? I am so, so smart. I learned how to sit on command in less than one day and I also know all the down, stay, kennel, wait, and leave it commands! I'm working hard on walking well on a leash and use a gentle leader to help with my pulling. I just have so much to explore that I am a very enthusiastic walker.

Some side notes about me: I am awesome at letting my family cut my nails and don't resistance too much. Overall, I am quiet and only really bark in the yard.

I can't wait to meet my new family and explore with them! I hope you're my new family!

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.
