Shorty is a 3-year-old, 6-pound white poodle mix available for adoption from Operation Kindness. He’s an adorable little guy who’s somewhat shy on first meeting new people, but he quickly responds to affection. Shorty is good with other small dogs and has a quiet, gentle demeanor. He’s a super-sweet fellow who’s ready for a new home for the New Year. Shorty is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and on heartworm preventive.
