As indicated by the Guinness Book of World Records, the world’s most tiny living dog lives in Puerto Rico. The smallest Chihuahua in the world is called Milly.
Guinness judges as of late gave the title “World’s Smallest Dog” to a little dark-colored and tan Chihuahua named Milly. At right around 2 years of age, Milly, or “Supernatural occurrence Milly” as her proprietor, Vanesa Semler, calls her, is just 3.8 inches tall and just weighs about a pound.
In correlation, Guinness’ Tallest Dog in the World is a Great Dane named Zeus, who stands 44 inches tall.
“Individuals are astonished when they see her since she is so little,” Semler discloses to NBC News of Milly. “What’s more, she has a major character. Individuals love her.”
At the point when Milly was conceived in December 2011, she was so little she must be taken care of through an eyedropper at regular intervals. Like a little dog, Milly rested in a doll den beside Semler’s bed so her concerned proprietor could monitor her regularly.
Regardless of her uncommonly little size, Milly’s mark is presumably her well-known camera present. At whatever point a photographic artist snaps an image of the elfin Chi, she sticks her tongue out. That’s the smallest Chihuahua in the world for you!

Milly, the World’s Smallest Dog

Angel, a Tiny Yorkie
Angel, a 5-week-old Yorkshire Terrier pup from Alliston, Ontario, is not yet eligible for the “World’s Smallest Dog” award since the judges only consider dogs who are 1 year or older. However, Angel weighs only 0.36 pounds, making her a potential contender for the title in the future. Angel’s veterinarian, Dr. Tashfeen Abbasi, has never seen a puppy as small as her in his 16 years of practice.
Smallest dogs, often called “teacup” dogs, can suffer from serious and dangerous health issues. While some breeders intentionally breed these small dogs, others, like Angel’s owner, Kim Passero, do it accidentally. Whatever the case, the health and well-being of these tiny dogs should always be a top priority.
