This is ALINA,


Alina is a sweet, loving mixed breed who had a very rough start to her life. She was saved by a rescue in Tijuana, Mexico where she spent time until a safe, loving, ME experienced foster could be found in the US to manage her. Alina has been doing really well and is now ready for her forever home. Please help this beautiful, loving girl find her forever home so she can know she won’t ever be moved again and is safe and loved. Look at that huge smile and know she is waiting to love you back!!!
