Hi, I am Mr. Randolph. I am about 11 years old and 7 pounds. If you look up the definition of what a cutie is, you will find my name there! 

When I see my foster family, I like to dance around and wag my tail! I am adjusting to life in a home and learning about the joys of human touch. I am cautious when getting pets or picked up at first, but I do enjoy attention and being loved once I am in your arms. If you pet me behind the ears or rub my back, we will be best friends. We also will be best friends if you sing to me! My foster family sings to me and the daughter sings me a specific little llama song she learned when she was little. Isn't that the cutest!?

I am one happy boy and love to be outside and takes naps in the sun. This warmer weather is the best! Playing in leaf piles is fun and playing chase with the other dog is a lot of fun, too! 

I like to sleep in my dog bed or be wrapped in a blanket. You can wrap me up like a little burrito and I will fall asleep in your arms. I do well sleeping in the human bed or kennel if needed and I am pretty quiet. I really only occasionally bark at some noises or sometimes when I'm left alone. 

My potty training is coming along and I have started to scratch the door when I need to go outside. We are also working on leash training and it's also coming along. Our focus is me meeting people and getting comfortable being picked up and approached. It gets better every day! That's because I am a brave little man. 

Once you meet me, you will fall in love! I am a cutie pants who is ready to blossom into the dog I am meant to be. Do you want to help me blossom?! 



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.
