Pet-of-weekMeet Francine, an adorable tiny Terrier mix that was transferred from a nearby city shelter. She comes to Operation Kindness with all her litter mates. This is a wild bunch of pups that love attention and love playing with each other and their toys. They’re full of energy but are social and loving. If you’re looking for a small-breed puppy, come meet this family. They all currently weigh about 3 pounds, and each one will fit comfortably in your hand.  They will steal your heart!
