Wrangler is a sweet 22-pound pup who is extremely timid and frightens easily. He needs a very patient and loving family who will understand his fears and allow him to learn and grow at his own pace. He is very smart and loves squeaky toys and treats. (He'd be a great candidate for agility training!)  He is very loving and bonds deeply with his caregiver.

Wrangler requires a secure, 6 ft. fenced yard so he can run and play safely. He has made amazing progress since coming into rescue and is learning to be curious, rather than afraid of things that are new to him. His crate is his safe place. He will go there and watch when he's fist getting used to something or someone, but his curiosity gets the better of him and he eventually comes out to explore.  He will need continued exposure to all sorts of new things so he can continue to gain confidence. He LOVES other dogs and needs one in his forever home to help him feel safe.  He loves to snuggle and will sleep in bed with you, if you'll let him (Shhh, don't tell him he's not a lap dog). 


If Wrangler sounds like he might be a good fit for your family, come and meet him. You'll see he's worth the trip.  You'll never find a dog who can love you better than Wrangler!

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.
