Underdogs Rock! Rescue

We are a small Portland, Oregon based 501c3 organization rescuing dogs from the over crowded shelters in Southern California, Alabama, and Hawaii. We foster the dogs until they are healthy and help them find their forever homes! Contact us at [email protected] work directly with Rescue Groups in Southern California to rescue dogs who are on their last days in the high-kill shelters. Because our dogs are in Foster Homes we get to know the dogs personalities and needs. As we know the dogs well and how they do in a home environment, we do a great job in matching families with the right dog, and the right family for the dog!

Meet Chewy

Chewy, 2-3 years old, cannot tell us what his life was like before rescue, but it doesn’t appear that is was the easiest of times for him. In spite of whatever he has been through he is a shining star. When they say the best things in life come in small packages we are sure they meant this slight 8 pound love. Chewy isn't your ordinary boy; he's a social butterfly, wagging tails and making friends wherever he goes. Cuddling is his specialty - if there were awards for it, Chewy would be the champion! His adorable face will melt your heart with cuteness overload. He’s easy to please as nothing makes him happier than being held close, snuggling up in your arms. While he could settle into a home with or without other small sized dogs or even with cats, people are really his focus. He thrives on human companionship and would be happy to become a semi-permanent fixture on your lap if you were ok with that. And, this guy is totally cool with wearing doggy duds! Chewy is the SWEETEST boy and deserves all the love in the world, which he will gratefully return right back at you. To see about a meet with him please complete an online Underdogs Rock Rescue adoption application at  https://underdogsrock.org/adoption-application  Chewy is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and preventative, and will be microchipped. He is being fostered in SW Portland.  His adoption fee is $280 Underdogs are not held for or shipped outside of the Portland metro area. Meets and home checks are part of the adoption process. Everyone in an applicant’s household must be able to meet at the foster’s location.
