Temperament:  Petey does well with people and dogs but not cats.  Petey does not like being yelled at and will show his teeth when this is done and if pushed he will bite your hand, so sweet talking works best for him.  Due to this we no kids under 12 please.  Petey loves to play fetch.  He loves to drench his person with kisses and takes treats gently.  He would not do well in an apartment setting as he barks for a couple minutes after his person leaves but then settles down.  He wants to be with his person!

Name: Honey Bunny    Breed: Chihuahua/Terrier mix    Age: 10yrs   Weight:  10lbs-ish

Medications needed for upkeep in addition to heartworm/flea prevention:  a specially formulated allergy medication that will cost about $100/month for about 2 yrs.  It is needed to combat her terrible allergy issues (she will literally chew and scratch her skin off when not on meds) and build her immune system back up.   She is currently growing her fur back from extreme skin issues due to the neglect so she will be even prettier soon.  Spayed:  not at this time 

Heartworm status: negative

Crate Trained:  She is not a fan of crates   Potty Trained:  90%  and will use pee pads.  

Grooming: currently sheds skin a lot, not much hair to groom, nails constantly trimmed to prevent injury from constant scratching

Temperament:  She is still in recovery for neglect and medical issues from that neglect but she hopes to be very adoptable soon!  She is super sweet yet very awkward from not knowing much kindness. Good with cats, dogs and people.  

Adoption fee will be $50 to an approved adopter within 1 hr of Gulfport, MS


Geraldine is a teeny tiny 4.6lb 10yr old gal that is very scared at first but opens up after a few days.  I don't really think she knows of the awesomeness that is snuggling as she always acts like I am holding her hostage.  She was found wandering and her people were never located.  She was covered in fleas with a dislocated knee and skin issues resulting from being flea infested.  She is house trained but will go inside if not let out often enough so we are working on pee pad training.  She is heartworm negative and takes no meds.  She will need surgery for her knee that pops out but she can get around on it as of now.  There are no indications that she has ever been spayed.  If we are able to raise the funds we will get her knee surgery and spay done prior to adopting out.  She has been fully vaccinated.  She is good with others as long as they don't get in her face.  That and her being somewhat frail means she will not be adopted out to families with kids under 10 or with families with over amorous pets.

Ginger cats!  Apparently someone told this family of 9 that our property needs cats! 


Age: 6months-2yrs   Litterbox trained: no but cats take to litterboxes very quickly Spayed/Neutered:  Yes

    Vaccinations:  Rabies - adopter would be responsible for any other vaccinations or veterinary needs

Temperament: They are very sweet/funny and playful when they get to know you and I think would make good inside cats if the adopter could give the cat a room to acclimate in for about a week or so.  

Adoption fee for each:  $15 within coastal MS


Name: Patches     Breed: chihuahua/terrier mix,     Age:  6yrs     Weight: 10lbs.  

Medications needed for upkeep in addition to heartworm/flea prevention:  Buspirone for anxiety ($10/month from your veterinarian)  Heartworm status: negative

Crate trained:  yes but he would prefer to not be crated    Potty trained: 80% (will mark around other animals, a belly band can help combat this, feel free to ask ?s)

Temperament: Patches is a sweet and submissive boy who wants nothing more than to snuggle with you after he learns to trust you which could take some time.  After he is comfortable which will take time:  good with women, large dogs he mainly ignores, small males he is NOT good with (he will aggressively fight them), small females he is fine as long as they do not get in his face (this is as long as you don't force interactions and let him be until he is comfortable which will take time).  PLEASE UNDERSTAND He is a VERY timid boy and will need someone with lLOTS of patience and compassion.  He would not be good in an apartment complex due to his insecurity, he would find walking around there terrifying until he got to trust you fully.  He is terrified of men and children. 

His perfect home would be with a female with no other pets or larger non-submissive dogs who is capable of helping him through patience and care.

Precious is 12ish years young and unfortunately spent most of that time stuck in a very small cage in a puppy mill being bred by force - she was bred so many times that her estrogen levels are permanently raised leading to blood cell issues and anemia.  She is hand fearful which is indicative of abuse.  She has hind leg problems and a slipped disk in her back from being kept in tiny cages.
She is very quickly responding to a kind hand though and showing her amazingly funny and sweet side! Due to being a bit "bitey" she is not available for adoption but you can donate to her via PayPal to [email protected] or through this website.

Lucy, 8 yrs young, spaniel mix, 30lbs.  Has PTSD issues from sexual trauma.  She could be available for adoption to someone very understanding of her quirks and issues that is able to give her the love and patience that she requires.  NO KIDS UNDER 10, NO CATS.  She barks a lot.  She needs to be an inside dog.  She will need grooming quarterly.  She is VERY sweet and funny.  She is submissive and very awkward around other dogs.

Zoombie came to us...she walked right up to the front door and asked for help.  She had 6 week old kittens with her, was pregnant again, and had recently been attacked by something that ripped open her mouth and throat yet she would still carry mouthfuls of food to her kittens even though she could barely eat and was terribly skinny herself.  We got her all fixed up and realized she really really hates being inside so being that she stays on site she is now our mouser.  She honestly sucks at it but we don't tell her that. I have seen a field mouse walk right past her.   ;)

She is not available for adoption but lives at UAS.

Thank you so very much for considering to adopt and especially for entertaining the idea of adopting a senior or handi-capable dog or cat - you are already amazing in our book!


Meeting and potential adopting will be considered after we have received your filled out application and gone over everything to ensure that this would be a good thing for you and the pet you're interested in (some aren't good with kids or cats, have certain medical requirements, etc), have spoken to your current or past veterinarian to ensure that you are a good and responsible pet owner.  This process all typically takes a day or two at the most.   Please email us after submitting an application so we can keep an eye out for it.  [email protected]


If all is well then we will schedule a meet and greet with the pet of your choosing.  If that meeting goes well for both of you then you get to bring home your new best friend!  We ask that you allow 2 weeks with your new best friend to determine if this is the best match for you. Due to nerves and previous experiences they may not make the best first impressions but are trying their best.

Adoption Fees:  Typically adoption fees will vary depending on medical expenses that were incurred at their arrival but are usually no more than $100


Please note that if your current/past pets were not up to date on heartworm prevention or if you do not have a fenced in yard (for dogs) you will be declined an adoption.  While you may be an excellent pet owner and have no need for a fenced in yard we have run into too many irresponsible pet owners that allow their pets to free roam, etc and the outcomes have been unfortunate.  Due to this we no longer allow any dog adoptions to homes without fenced in yards unless you are an apartment/condo dweller.  Thank you for your understanding. 

Underdog Animal Society has the right to decline any adoption for any reason and without explanation.
