Puerto Rico Holds the Record for the World’s Smallest Dog


Guinness World Records has announced that the world’s smallest dog, at least when it comes to height, lives in Puerto Rico.

The brown Chihuahua named Miracle Milly is shorter than a soup can, standing at 3.8 inches (9.65 centimeters) tall when measured from backbone to paw.  She is nearly 2 years old and known for repeatedly sticking out her tiny tongue.

Milly dethroned Boo Boo, a long-haired Chihuahua from Kentucky that stands 4 inches (10.16 centimeters) tall. Guinness also has a second category for world’s smallest dog when measured by length. That title is held by Heaven Sent Brandy, a Chihuahua in Largo, Florida, that measures 6 inches (15.24 centimeters) long.  Guinness officials made the announcement Thursday.
