Chunk is a darling Chihuahua. He is almost 3 years old and 9 pounds. 





He is great with other dogs and learning each day that humans can be trusted.  He is still nervous and will need time to come out of his shell, but he's showing lots of interest in his people.  It's very cute when he peeks around the corner to keep an eye on his foster family.  He does relax once he gets used to being held, and his forever family will need to continue working on touch therapy with him. 





He will need another dog in his forever home to help him continue to learn to trust humans.  He has only been around smaller dogs and having one around his size in his furever home would be best for him.  He's also starting to show interest in treats and has realized bully sticks are the best!





He is trained to go to the bathroom outside and can also use a potty pad inside if needed.  He isn't crate trained or leash trained yet.  For that reason and because he's still nervous a fenced in yard is required for him.  He only barks when alarmed and has the cutest little grunt you've ever heard. 





He is a sweet natured little boy who is so excited to find his forever home. He hopes it is with you!  



 




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:  




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.



 





ADOPTION PROCEDURE:



The first step in our process is to complete an online adoption application on our website:



http://www.underdogrescuemn.com/adoptionprocess/

 


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 http://www.underdogrescuemn.com/contact-us/ if you have further questions.


 





FOSTER CARE:





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 

www.underdogrescuemn.com/foster-applications

 and fill out a foster application.



 





NUTRITION:





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.
