The Story of Tina

4-year-old Tina is a Ruff Start newcomer who is undergoing surgery at Granite City today. Upon joining the rescue, her foster bathed her and discovered large mammary masses. Aware of the potential risks associated with such masses, Tina was quickly scheduled for surgery to ensure her well-being.

We don’t know much about Tina’s past, but she was a recent owner surrender who was used for breeding. Tina is beginning to come out of her shell and is learning about the finer things in life, like treats and ear scritches. She’s learning how to be a family pet by observing the other chihuahuas in her foster home. The world is still a big, scary place to her, but she’s learning and growing every day. Overall, Tina is a sweet, gentle soul who deserves to be spoiled rotten and have her little floppy velvet ears petted for the rest of her life.
Tina’s vet bill today, which includes her spay, is expected to be around $400. Please help us with her expenses so she can go on to live a happy life with a new family.
