Reviews

“Underhound Railroad was exceptional during our entire rescue adoption process. The foster home was wonderful and we were able to get all our questions answered. They went above and beyond to help is find the right rescue to add to our existing family and our current rescue dog. They made sure our home was safe and secure so that when we decided, we were all sure it was the right choice for us. We rescued our girl in December and couldn’t be happier! Thank you for your help adding an amazing new member to our home!”

“Penny (now our “little one”, Piccola) came to us after two weeks with her wonderful foster parents. It was a whirlwind romance–we fell for that adorable little pit face the moment we saw her. We don’t want to think too much about what Piccola went through before Underhound Railroad rescued her, took care of her, and brought her our way, but we plan to do everything to make the rest of her life as wonderful as possible. Thank you for stepping in when Piccola needed it! You’re organization is outstanding to work with and doing something exceptional.”

“We adopted our dog four years ago through Underhound Railroad. I was able to learn a lot about her from her foster and we were able to see that this dog would be a good match for us. Underhound volunteers take wonderful care of the dogs and pups they bring up from the south to save them from euthanasia. And that includes providing lots of love and patience as well as physical care. I wouldn’t hesitate to adopt another dog from Underhound Railroad.”

– Maryann

“I’ve adopted two wonderful dogs through this agency. They’ve been two of the best companions that I could ever ask for. The volunteers were always a delight to speak with and always putting the best interest of the dog before anything else.”

– Ryan

“Excellent, caring, ethical and well directed rescue. I have fostered dogs for them, evaluated dogs on their behalf in shelters and assisted with pulling those dogs for the rescue, and even adopted one of the dogs I fostered. Highly recommend.”

– Samantha

“Underhound Railroad helped to bring us a wonderful little pup after my husband and I suddenly and unexpectedly lost one of our precious fur babies. Everyone involved worked to hard and quickly to make sure all of the potential adopters and fosters were matched with the perfect Underhound. Our dog has been such a joy for us and if ever we find ourselves looking for another furbaby… Underhound Railroad is going to be the first place we look!”

Thank you everyone who had applied to adopt Ivy, Hugo, Crane and Cyrus. We are so excited to have so many families wanting to adopt a new fur companion. We now are no longer accepting applications as already received applications are being processed to find the best homes for this family. Don't forget mama Quinn will be looking for her furever home shortly. ... See MoreSee Less

Simply put, Levi is a dream. Levi is a young 1 year old retriever lab mix ready to find his furever family. He’s sweet, affectionate, and highly intelligent. He wants to be your best friend and will reward your love and affection ten-fold. Levi learns commands quickly when rewarded with praise and positive reinforcement. He rarely barks and loves to please. In two short weeks, he now sits on command, comes when he is called, knows his name, stops when told “No”, is leash & harness trained, is 99% housetrained, and is growing more and more comfortable in his crate. Levi is playful and would love nothing better for you to roll around on the floor with him, but he can quickly become excitable. Levi is learning not to jump on people and not to “mouth” you (put your hand, arm, leg into his mouth and hold you gently with his teeth). He loves our Caviler King Charles and cat and just wishes they would play with him. Small children and loud/barking dogs give him a lot of anxiety. He will need further gentle socialization to different people, dogs, and environments (it was clear that he had never been to a park before). Someone who could be home a lot with him to further build upon the trust and training he’s showing would be essential. Levi’s transformation from a terrified shelter dog who couldn’t even walk – to this handsome, loving boy has been amazing - and so rewarding to watch! If you’re looking for that “hidden gem” of a rescue dog – fill out your application soon at www.underhoundrailroad.org! We know that Levi won’t last long! ... See MoreSee Less

Oh Rosco, you are so handsome. What I wouldn't give to have a houseful of hound dogs. I hope you find a loving home. <3

As a hound, is he big on baying/howling/barking. My husband says that’s a disqualifier and we want the best home for him of course 🙂

Happy to tails to Goldie Hawn who has been adopted! She is now a mini me. Here is a message from her furever mom.

"Life has changed a bit at the Hopkins. Goldie Hawn, now named Poppy, arrived last Saturday from North Carolina as a “foster” pup. It took about half an hour for us to decide she was a keeper. We made it official this morning. Daisy, a former Underhound herself, if not thrilled initially, now thinks it’s a pretty good idea too. What better project to get us through the winter?"

Happy tails, Poppy!

Gizmo and his amazing ears are looking for their furever home! Gizmo is a young 4 month old border collie mix and is the most perfect puppy you could ask for, and that isn't an exaggeration. He is almost 100% house trained, he sleeps quietly in his crate at night, he LOVES dogs and cats, and he is great with all kids and adults. Gizmo is a little shy with people at first but blossoms around other dogs and looks to them for guidance, affection, and play. He does the cutest puppy jumps and tap dances and loves to play tug of war. He is super well behaved and quite the snuggler once he trusts you. He loves going for his daily 2 mile walk but will need continued leash training as he likes to zig zag with his nose in the air. He naps every car ride, curled up and quiet. Gizmo loves to play and wrestle, but isn't wild and crazy and doesn't require lots of exercise. At only 18lbs right now he is going to be the perfect size for all dog lovers. You really won't find a better dog to make a part of your family! ... See MoreSee Less
