Hi, I’m Galaxy! I am about a year old and weigh 14 pounds.

I’m looking for the right family to help me settle in and snuggle down before my first winter in Minnesota. I’m the perfect snuggle buddy and I love belly scratches and spooning on the couch. I'll even roll onto my back for scratches. Adorable.

I’m still very shy and jumpy at loud noises and movements and rides in the car, but I’m getting better and more brave every day. 

I go to a coffee shop and on walks to help me see new places and things and I meet a lot of people who give me all sorts of nice attention. I'm still learning how to be on the leash and know that eventually I'll adjust to it, but I will need some patience for now. 

I'm good with cats, kids, and other dogs and I’m getting used to playing with my first toys. I like my rope toy and chew on it sometimes. I'm interested in this tennis ball thing, though I don't know what it does. Do you know what I do with it? I do like treats, but am not quite ready to take them directly from my foster hoomans yet. 

I’m potty trained and learning new things, like the stay and come commands. Also, how to share toys and people. Sometimes I think it's all supposed to be mine. I just need some dog lessons on that. More importantly, I have learned how awesome it is to go to the dog park! I have so much fun there and play well with the other dogs.

A calm home environment and a family/owner that can help me along the way would be amazing. A little patience, consistency, and love will help me settle right in with you. I can’t wait to meet you and start a new life with my furever famly!


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.

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.
