Redford is a case that is near and dear to our hearts. Redford and his two siblings were rescued and transported to MN, however shortly after arriving in foster care Redford escaped his foster home and spent 4 weeks fending for himself in the wild. We never gave up hope for him and eventually he was recovered. He has been in our care for over 9 months now, trying to teach him how to trust people, and how to “be a dog”. Redford has come a long way, but still has a very long way to go.  For this reason he requires a special kind of home. The perfect home for him would be someone who has experience rehabilitating shy/scared dogs. He requires another dog in the home, as well as a 6 foot physical fenced in yard. (Apartments/Condos/Townhomes and homes outside of the 60 mile radius will not be considered at this time) Redford is an extreme flight risk and will need someone dedicated to giving him time, patience, love, and acceptance. Redford would do best in an adults only home. Redford is not currently potty trained, but will use a potty pad approximately 70% of the time.  Redford is available for a meeting by approved application only. Due to the special nature around his behavior and circumstances, Redford will not be attending regular 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.



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.
