The World’s Smallest Dog?
I can think of a few things smaller than this puppy, but not much… including an iPhone. This is a picture of a Dachshund mix that is named Beyoncé, and she happens to be at a rescue shelter in El Dorado County, in northern California. The story goes that when she was born, she could fit in a spoon. Two weeks later, she’s the size of a cell phone.
Beyoncé came from a litter of five puppies, however she was born without a heartbeat. The extremely awesome vets were able to get her going with very small chest compressions and even mouth-to-mouth. Vets say in a few weeks, she’ll be healthy enough to be adopted. In the meantime, in an attempt to see if she is indeed the worlds smallest dog, the shelter submitted an application to the Guinness World Records. The current record for the world’s smallest dog is a Chihuahua who is tiny at just four inches tall. Beyoncé is currently even smaller than the current record.
