Tina, the 3-year-old Dachshund is a little more active than her pal Rubio. She is dog friendly and would fit into most homes, especially if there is an active person she can play with.

“This is what our Second Chance Program is all about when it comes to opening doors to homes that might not otherwise be possible and also supporting those local communities in their drive for change. We make the biggest difference when we all work together," Lamb continued.
