Posted Breed: Shar Pei (short coat). Thank you for stopping by to see me! Please check below to see what upcoming adoption events I will be attending or apply here for a private meeting. If you have other questions about me you can email Underdog Rescue at <underdogrescue@petml.com> ***Be sure to check your spam/junk folder as sometimes our emails end up there*** Meet Walrus! Walrus is a 2 year old purebred Shar Pei. Walrus is a special needs pup. He has suffered from chronic regurgitation for a long time. He spent two days at the University of Minnesota and while there he was diagnosed with Idiopathic Mega Esophagus. Mega Esophagus is a life long, incurable disorder which is characterized by decreased movement and distention of the esophagus. As a result food does not pass from the mouth to the stomach appropriately and can sit in the esophagus or be regurgitated. Pets with Mega Esophagus are at greater risk for developing Pneumonia since food and liquids sitting in the Esophagus or being regurgitated can be accidentally inhaled into the lungs. However, Walrus is the rare exception, as he does not seem prone to aspiration Pneumonia and has not had to deal with it at all. The good news is this disorder can be managed but it does take dedication. Walrus's disorder had previously gone undiagnosed and unmanaged. As a result, he was underweight with a very unhealthy hair coat and would regurgitate dozens of times a day, and all through the night. Since he has been in our care, he sleeps peacefully through the night and only regurgitates about 1 time during the day. In all other ways he is a healthy, happy pup! His disorder is simply congenital in nature. Walrus's care includes two meals every day, three would be ideal. During and immediately after he must be kept in a vertical position so food can travel through his esophagus to his stomach with the help of gravity. He must remain in a vertical position after ingesting anything for at least 15 minutes. The use of a Bailey Chair can make this routine MUCH easier! Luckily, Walrus has his very own chair, which will go with him when he is adopted! The food we have found to work best is Nutrisource Grain Free canned food, mixed with a cup of water. Dogs with ME should not be fed dry kibble or raw food diets. Additionally, they should never be given water, except while restricted to his chair. Luckily, he has little need for water, as he gets so much moisture in his diet. Even though he lives with 3 other dogs, he ignores their water bowl, almost entirely. While Walrus's care does involve extra work, anyone who meets him can see he is infinitely worth it! He is a lovely little guy with an amazing disposition. He loves people and gets along well with other dogs. His ideal home would be with someone who has first hand experience with ME, as it can become very serious if not properly managed and comes with extra responsibility. We are open minded though as we just want to find the very best forever home for him! As his foster mom, I had no experience with ME and it was a real learning curve! Another possible home would be with someone simply willing to keep up what we have been doing as well as continue to do further research, in case there are additional ways Walrus can be helped! Things to also consider: do you travel often? Finding a qualified pet sitter to give the care needed for a dog with ME can be a challenge. His diet costs about $100 a month. Walrus gets along with other dogs he meets. However, he should not live with another male dog his age who challenges his place in the world. He gets along perfectly we our old Lab and our middle aged Shih Tzu- both are males. However, we have a Pointing Griffon, (60 pound dog) male who is the same age as Walrus and they are known to butt heads. Walrus is fine with cats who fully ignore him but he should not be trusted with a cat who engages with him or runs from him. Dogs with ME can live long, happy and healthy lives, as long as the proper care is given. There is also a lot of helpful information found online in this topic, as well as a very informative Yahoo group for owners of ME dogs. Walrus also needs a fenced yard, or someone committed to ALWAYS going out with him. He is totally housebroken and sleeps through the night at the foot of his foster's bed. (p.s. We have nicknamed him Peeps and he knows that as his name, more so than Walrus). Let us know if you would like to meet this sweet guy!!!

More About Chinese Shar-Pei Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

I’m a happy, playful little girl who loves to snuggle with my people! I’ve also been known to sit on my furry foster sisters, because I’m used to being in tight quarters with other dogs and it feels good. They don’t mind! My greatest trick is the funny stretch-kick I do with my back legs. It’s pretty adorable. I’m a healthy girl who loves to chew on raw bones or bully sticks and prance around the yard like a 2 year old! I’m really getting the hang of potty training, too. You have to be patient to catch me, but I’m getting braver. Once I trust you, I’m in love with you to the moon and back. I'm a happy girl who LOVES to snuggle, so can I be your fur-ever buddy??

He is about 11 years old and 14 pounds. Mooshu is such a sweet little happy man. He is good with other dogs outside the home as long as they aren't too in his face but needs to be an only pet in his forever home. 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 LOVES to play with his favorite stuffed toys. He would make a great office pet as he is very calm, quite and relaxed in most situations. Mooshu would do best with an owner with dog experience since he occasionally will get crabby about people coming into his space. 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!!

If you have other questions about me you can email Underdog Rescue at <underdogrescue@petml.com> ***Be sure to check your spam/junk folder as sometimes our emails end up there*** DIRTY DOG SPA Friday, May 5th from 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm 14722 Pennock Ave, Apple Valley MN – http://www.thedirtydogspa.com/ BENTLEY’S PET STUFF EDINA Friday, May 19th from 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm 7433 France Ave S, Edina MN – www.petstuff.com Hello, my name is Queso and I am a cute Chihuahua. I am 7 years old and weigh 8 pounds. Life in a home is new to me and I am learning so much! I am coming out of my shell every day and am doing my best to be a brave little Chihuahua. Some days I go to work with my foster mom and other days I stay at home up to 9 hours in a gated area. My foster parents leave me potty pads that I use when they are gone and I am also learning how to go potty outside. I know I will master it eventually! My favorite thing to do is to eat, chew on raw bones and sleep! At meal time, I will wiggle my whole body. I am a champion wiggle butt. Did I mention that I LOVE to eat?! I sleep in bed near my foster mom and will lie on the couch with her. Eventually, I hope to muster enough courage to start cuddling! These are a few of the things I enjoy. J I am still quite nervous around people and do best when folks approach me slowly. As I adjust to my new life, I would prefer to live in a home without children. I would LOVE (and require) another dog companion though, and a small one would be even better! They can teach me how to be brave and that people are fun and loving. And I will teach them how to wiggle. I live with some pups right now and enjoy being their little shadow! And guess what?! I don’t even mind cats. I am a sweet little pup and simply want to learn about all the joys of life. I would love to learn about them with you if you have space for me in your heart! Whaddya say!? 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: Please understand that all of our pets are in 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 email us to confirm attendance. ADOPTION PROCEDURE: The first step in our process is to complete an online adoption application on our website: http://www.underdogrescuemn.com/adoptionprocess/ 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 http://www.underdogrescuemn.com/contact-us/ if you have further questions. FOSTER CARE: 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 www.underdogrescuemn.com/foster-applications and fill out a foster application. NUTRITION: 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. YOU CAN HELP: Not able to foster or adopt right now? Please consider sponsoring an Underdog.

I am a 6-year-old Labrador Retriever that weighs 52 lbs. I come from a rough and scary background that has shaped me into who I am today. I’m looking for a patient forever family that can continue to shape me into the confident and brave dog that I long to be. I am a very shy girl and am mostly scared of everything. Until finding my foster home, I had never experienced the things that most dogs experience even as a young puppy. I’m just starting to get used to being around people that are nice to me. I get very nervous when meeting new people and just want to run away because I’m not sure of how they will treat me. It turns out that most people tend to be very nice. I have a very nice foster family that is teaching me what it’s like to feel love from humans. I adore the man in my foster family and like to follow him around. I really enjoy to snuggle with him to take a nap. I haven’t snuggled with anyone else yet, but I think I’ll get brave enough to try it eventually. In my foster home, I sleep in the basement. I have slept in my crate a few times but am more comfortable on my couch where it’s quiet and safe downstairs. My foster family has tried to introduce me to toys, but I don’t care much for them. I am still trying to learn how to tell my family that I need to go outside to potty. I have had a few accidents in the house because I couldn’t find a way to tell them that I needed to go potty. Outside can be a scary place with all the sounds though. Loud noises make me jump, especially when I’m outside. In my forever home, I will need another dog to show me how to become the confident family dog that I so desire to be. With the right family that understands my needs and past, I know I will continue to be rehabilitated and have a new life to shape who I am for the better!

I am about 9 years old and weigh 85 pounds. I’m a lovable girl who seeks a forever home where I am wanted and loved. I can be very entertaining and love my squeaky toys. I also enjoy rolling in the grass and am friendly with the people I’ve met so far on my journey. As far as my eating and exercise habits, I do best on a regular schedule. I love mealtime and have had to learn some manners. I even can sit before they give me my food! I can do the shake command as well! As long as you have some treats for me :) I am potty trained and do best when taken out regularly and immediately after meals. I let my family know when I need to go to the bathroom and only have accidents if my family doesn't take me out when I let them know, often by getting on your lap or gently mouthing your arm. Such a silly girl! I can turn into a bouncing puppy on any day and love walks! I am a sniffer and take smells very seriously. I can get a little mesmerized by things that catch my eye since the outside world is all new to me. I wish I could be a detective, I would be a very good one! I think I would like to live in a home something like this: An owner who can be a strong pack leader who also has a calm and confident disposition and can handle a large breed dog. Previous ownership with rottweiler or mastiff breeds would be beneficial! No small household pets, since I have somewhat of a prey drive. I prefer an adult only household. Children move fast and sometimes startle me. I would love a quiet and calm home environment. I hope for a neighborhood which has parks and nature paths to explore. I simply am looking for a pack to join and want your love and affection. Once you gain my adoration and respect, I will be such a wonderful companion and addition to your household.

I would like a home that has a doggie friend in it so I can continue to learn about dog life and have my own snuggle buddy. I also like to chase my canine friends. It's a lot of fun. I have mastered the art of potty training and do awesome on a schedule. Aren't I a little gem?! I am looking for a very special family who can take care of me.
