What is an easy way to cure horrible dog breathe?

My new dog has horrible breath, and I'm not sure what to do about it.

They have these small green colored bones at Wal-Mart that are supposed to cure bad breath. They are minty or something. I have given them to our other dog before, and she ate them. However, my new dog doesn't like bones. The lady I got her from told me she had given her a bone before, but she didn't chew on it, she only licked it a couple of times, and that's it. So, I don't think it would be a good idea to get a whole bag of the expensive bones, if she won't even eat them.

What are some home remedies, or something I could try for her horrible breath?
By the way, she isn't a puppy, so it's not just puppy breath.
