  The success stories are our favorite part. Each dog that is placed on this page lets us know that we are doing our jobs. Each dog that is placed on this page makes room for yet another dog to go into a foster home.

Below are some of the success stories of dogs that have been adopted through Underdog ResQ. We ask each adoption family to keep in touch and send photos of their new companions with their new families.

Name:  Pippin
Breed:  Chihuahua Mix
Age:  estimated 3 years
Sex:  Male

Pippin's Success Story
What a treasure Pippin the Pup is turning into. He is something of a worm as he has wormed himself into my heart. He is loving and playful and loves to be touched and touch in return. I am pretty certain that he is both Chihuahua and Italian Greyhound mix. His birthday was 12-9-2010 so he is just turning three years old.

I took him to the groomers and he was extremely well behaved and needed just a basic cleaning and toe nail clip. Then I took him to the Vet for a general check up. He melted the hearts of all of the assistants and even impressed the Vet himself. They all loved the way he prances when he walks. Most "runway models" could take a lesson from him in the way he walks placing one front foot in front of the other giving him that prancing sway to his gate! Heart, lungs, skin, muscle tone and all were in excellent shape and, other than a minor eye infection (being treated with antibiotic drops) he gets a clean bill of health. Apparently, he was fed "junk" according to the Vet. Too much wet and not enough dry food so he has a bit of tartar build up and will be getting a tooth cleaning soon. I have shifted him to mostly dry kibble and tartar control chew sticks in place of canned wet food and he is thriving well on it.

He is very much a warm companion and well worth my time, money and...mostly...love.

He was a foster that I just couldn't let go of! Although we will continue fostering and caring for our other animals, he is definitely mine and I am his.

Fostering and adopting is very worthwhile and everyone who really wants a great pet should do it that way. What a waste it would have been to have such a wonderful friend lost to euthanasia just because someone threw him away!

He is also great with the grandkids, friends and family. He is gradually getting over the shaking fear he had with each new change and acclimates well now.

I am very grateful to Underdog ResQ that he came to me. We will be together for many years too come.

We knew Teddy would be popular because of his breed, size and personality and he was! But, his foster parents couldn't let go of him and invited him to be a permanent part of the family along with their 1 years old Lab. Teddy was adopted in March of 2013 shortly after he was admitted.

Name:  Isis
Breed:  Pit Bull
Age:  2 years
Sex:  Female

Isis's Success Story
A note from Isis' foster mom:

Isis is a beautiful blue brindle female of about 2 years old that was "rescued" from her owner as part of a cruelty case. While her puppies we kept and offered up for adoption, she was handed over to a shelter with an "euthanasia" request. Fortunate for Isis this shelter saw the beauty this little girl possessed! They evaluated her, deemed her very much adoptable and reached out to local rescues to see if anyone could save her. Underdog Resq stepped up and rescued this pretty girl. For a little over 3 months Isis lived with me as my foster dog. Here she had a foster feline sister and two foster canine brothers. From the moment Isis got in my car when I picked her up to take her home, I knew she was a special dog. She was so mellow and just kind of went with the flow of life. Isis was an awesome big sister to her two little canine brothers and she never really cared about her feline sister. She was a pleasure to have! After what had seemed like quite some time, Isis finally got an application, one that seemed to be THE perfect application.... I was hopeful! Doing home visits is always a little nerving... I never know what to expect, who to expect.... as I entered the home of Amanda and Todd, I couldn't help but smile and feel 100% comfortable, I kept repeating to myself "this family is awesome". Within a couple days, Isis was on her way to her new home!! There she lives with her new Mommy and Daddy, Grandparents (which I'm sure spoil her) feline sister and big brother Loki. One of the fantastic outcomes of this adoption, is not only did Isis find her forever home, but I found some forever friends. It's true treat to be able to keep in touch with Amanda (her Mom). Amanda said something to me a week or two after she adopted Isis, she said "I can't imagine our life without her"... that is the greatest thing an adoptive parent has ever said to me.... how rewarding!!

A note from Isis' new Mommy, Amanda:

"Just wanted to let everybody at Underdog Resq know how awesome Isis is doing! We've had her a little over a month now, and she has adjusted to everything perfectly! Her and her brother Loki have become inseparable! Her new favorite thing to do is lay on top of him. We've gone on adventures to multiple pet stores, and tons of trail walks! We even brought her to a Pitbull Awareness event in Sanford, ME a couple weekends ago.

We have also started some off leash training in our yard and she's picking up on all the commands pretty fast! She has quite a few commands down already; "sit" "stay" "lay down" "no begging" "on your bed"..well we're still working on the "on your bed", she likes our bed more than hers! Isis has been the perfect addition to our family, her and Loki tire each other out everyday running around our yard, and cuddle up together every night. She wants to do nothing more than give kisses and lay in our laps the second we sit down. We couldn't have asked for a better pup!"

Name:  Cora
Breed:  pit bull mix
Age:  Est. DOB 5/11/11
Sex:  Female

Cora's Success Story
Cora was born with 7 other brothers and sisters in May of 2011 into a city shelter. Underdog ResQ stepped in to help by putting all 7 puppies into secure and loving foster homes. She thrived in her foster home, but really needed a home of her very own to grow up into the confident and sweet dog she is today.

Cora found her home in an awesome family who loves her a great deal and continues to teach her to be an ambassador of her breed. She shares her life with two adorable twin human sisters who teach her patience and love.

Here is a recent picture and a note from her family.

Just thought I would send another picture your way and let you know that

Cora is doing wonderful. We love her so much. She is so loving and

caring. She and the girls are best friends. She loves to snuggle and

she enjoys going on 3.5 mile walks with Jason every day. She is very

active and loves her daily schedule. Hope all is well! Take care.

Name:  Bruno
Breed:  Pit Bull Mix
Age:  Est. DOB 5/11/11
Sex:  Male

Bruno's Success Story
Bruno is one of 8 pit bulls from a litter that Underdog ResQ admitted to help get them out of a cage and into a home. He was adopted 3 months later at the age of 5 months. Bruno is very friendly and well socialized with people, kids, and other animals, such as dogs and cats. He loves to play and is very well trained. His new home, as of 9/30/11, is with a lovely young couple, whom have recently purchased their first home. They have a wonderful home with a nice big yard, beautiful deck, and easy access to the park areas. Each of his new owners has previously owned dogs and is very dedicated to their new addition, Bruno. Like most true pet lovers, Bruno has become one of the family in this case. His success in finding a good home will always be remembered

 Common misconceptions
 before adopting a dog:
2. I have a back yard so I don't have to walk Rex every day.

Wrong! Being let out in the backyard does not supply Rex with enough exercise. He needs to go on a nice long walk with you (on the leash) where he'll get plenty of exercise and be able to socialize with other dogs and people.

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