Pet of the Month: Tiny Beyonce

by Lauren Verini

You may already know this month’s Pet of the Month; it’s the World’s Smallest Puppy Tiny Beyonce who made headlines when she was born on March 8, 2012. At first the doctors at The Grace Foundation didn’t think this tiny puppy was going to make it, but she was a survivor and hence was named Tiny Beyonce. Now that she has grown a little bit bigger, Tiny Beyonce uses her celebrity status to help other puppies in need through The Grace Foundation’s S.N.A.P. (Spray, Neuter, Adopt, Protect) program. Learn more and donate to the S.N.A.P. program through Tiny Beyonce’s Facebook, Tiny Beyonce .

Funny Story: When I was really little my human mom Beth Decaprio used to keep me in her shirt, close to her heart, to help keep me warm. During an interview I finally popped my head out and the camera crew was very relieved to figure out what the extra lump was in Beth’s shirt!
