People magazine's "World's Cutest Rescue Dog" calls southeastern Wisconsin home.

The 12-year-old Maltese was saved from a puppy mill where she spent the first six years of her life. 

It isn't the first time Lamb Chop as been recognized, either.

"Lamb Chop is actually a two-time winner. She won Milwaukee magazine's cutest dog in the June/July issue and she also won People magazine's cutest rescue dog this past week," said Christin Schumbert, Lamp Chop's owner.

Schumbert and Lamb Chop also work with a non-profit that is looking to stop puppy mills.
