Mooshu is one of the most adorable senior Pekingese around!  He is about 13 years old and 14 pounds.  Mooshu is such a happy little man most of the time and is constantly making his foster family smile. He loves meal time and playing with his stuffed toys.

Mooshu is good with other dogs and cats as long as they aren't interested in him.  If he lives with other animal, it will need to understand that he doesn't want to interact with other animals at all and likes his quiet little space.    

Mooshu is a very chill dude. He would do best in a calm home without children as he does not like a lot of action in his environment.  He is potty trained, crate trained and leash trained.  

He would make a great office pet as he is very calm, quite and relaxed in most situations.  Mooshu prefers to rest on the floor or in a dog bed however, on

very rare occasion he will ask to come up on the couch for a little bit.

Mooshu would do best with an owner with dog experience since he occasionally will get crabby about people coming into his space and being picked up.  We are working on this behavior and he is getting better with a strong pack leader.  He is so adorable and sweet, we can't wait for him to find his perfect forever home!!



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.
