  Why should you choose to adopt a dog from Underdog ResQ out of the many animal shelters and rescue organizations in the area? First of all, we have great dogs! Second of all, we promise to try our best to make this an enjoyable process. All applications will be responded to promptly, (within 48 hours). Last but not least, adopting a dog that has been in a foster home allows us to tell you more about them. We are able to see how your new dog will adjust to being in a home environment, whether they are truly housebroken, how they respond to commands, where they like to sleep, their eating habits, their favorite toys, whether or not he is good with strangers that come to the home and much more.

Below are pictures and profiles of our available dogs for adoption. We will do our best to keep this page updated. The dogs that are adopted will graduate and be moved to the success stories page.

Please make sure to read the adoption standards before applying for a dog. Complete that adoption application online or print out the pdf application and mail it.

Marty's Story
Meet Marty!

Weighing in at 11.4 pounds this little Chihuahua Mix has proven to be a perfect little senior dog (about 9 years of age) despite his history of being found as a stray and never being claimed by his owners. Since we have had him in foster care, he has shown us that he is housebroken and doesn’t need to be crated. Along with being trustworthy, he walks well on a leash and loves car rides.

His current foster home includes multiple dogs that are larger than him so he would do well in a permanent home with dogs. We don’t know if cats are a good match. Because of his age we’d guess older dog savvy kids might be a good match. We will let you know if we see him with kids in the near future.

Along with being up to date with general vet care, you won’t have to worry about his teeth for at least a year. He recently had a dental with some extractions.

They don’t come any cuter than this little chihuahua mix so if you are interested in Marty, visit our website and fill out an application and read about our adoption process. http://underdogresq.org/AdoptionCenter/AdoptionProcess.asp.

 Common misconceptions
 before adopting a dog:
1. We’re getting Rex for the kids - they will do all the work.

Maybe for the first week or so, but most kids will slack off soon enough and the responsibility will fall on your laps. You are considered to be the owner because you are over the age of 21. If your kids do not walk Rex, then it is up to you that it gets done. As much as we talk to our kids about responsibility and as much as they agree to care for your new dog, we all know that sooner or later most kids will lose interest or get tired.

If you can positively answer these questions and concerns, then you may be ready to adopt Rex.
