Norbert gets a spring in his step every time he sees the opportunity to put a smile on someone’s face.

While the pocket-sized 7-year-old Chihuahua, Cairn terrier and Lhasa Apso mix may weigh in at only three pounds, he sure has a huge heart with tons of love to give.

In fact, his mommy, author Julie Steines — who is married to Home and Family star Mark Steines (thanks to Norbert’s introduction while making an appearance on the show!) —likes to call him the “magical little creature” because of his ability to instantly light up a life, particularly at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, where he has been coined the tiniest therapy dog out of more than 100 enrolled in the hospital’s Amerman Family Foundation Dog Therapy Program.
