Tina's Story

Tina was found on a rainy night that changed her life forever. The rescuer first on the scene saw a wet dog lying limp in the middle of the road, then to realize that she got hit mercilessly by a car. The driver didn’t bother to stop and check up on her. In fact, the driver must have ran over her and just speed off with no remorse or compassion. Tina must have laid there for ages without anyone to help her. Her life was hanging by the tread before the rescuers got her proper treatment. Her severe injury to her hind legs turned her into a special needs dog. However, she doesn’t let tragedy stop her from being happy, playful and open to all that life has to offer.

She is a miracle to be alive and a bundle of joy waiting for the most special family who will love her for the way she is and all the more that she could be under your love and care
— Tina's Rescuer

Get to Know Tina

Tina will be a little hesitant upon meeting strangers. With some time, her shyness will go away and she will warm up to you quickly. She is friendly with other dogs, she wants to play and chase just like others. She is also kind towards human. We noticed after some rehabilitation that she does have some limited movement in her hind legs that can lift her up the floor a bit, but not significant.
