A165104 This is Tina. Tina needs a home. When Tina falls in love, she falls hard. Real hard. Crazy hard. She falls for her person so hard that it has caused Tina to have close to 10 adoptive and foster homes in the last 90 days, and we''re determined to make the next placement her last. This 11 pound, 1 year old Terrier/Dachshund Mix loves those that she loves with all of her heart. She loves so much and so intensely that sharing her people with others puts her in a grumpy state that doesn''t always sit well with those on the receiving end of her grumpiness. We recognize that this is something that needs to change for Tina, and we are hoping to find her a home that is willing to work with her on this issue, because the `loving` Tina is just so darn wonderful - we are willing to try. The `good` Tina is playful, gets along okay with cats and dogs that recognize that she''s top dog, is an amazing kisser, loves to sit in your lap and snuggle and is VERY eager to please. `Grumpy` Tina is protective of her person and can be snappy and demanding. Because of this, we want to be sure that Tina gets along with EVERYBODY in the household (dog and people alike) prior to going home with you (as this has been the problem in the previous homes she was in) and want her to meet everybody first for a few visits before leaving. Just a few playdates at the shelter are required before you have an obsessed superfan forever, and who doesn''t want that?

Please contact our Foster Coordinator at fosterpets@talgov.com or stop by the shelter to learn more about Tina!

Act quickly to adopt TINA. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
