The Guinness world record for the smallest dog living, in terms of height, was set by a long-haired, female Chihuahua called Boo Boo, who measured 10.16 cm (4 in) tall on 12 May 2007 and is owned by Lana Elswick of Raceland, Kentucky, United States.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the smallest dog in terms of length, set by Heaven Sent Brandy, a female chihuahua who measured 15.2 cm (6 in) from the nose to the tip of the tail. Brandy lives with her owner, Paulette Keller in Largo, Florida, USA.
The 3-month-old pooch lives in Puerto Rico with her owner Vanesa Semler, and weighs less than a pound (she's 5.99 oz., to be exact).
And while she may look a bit ratlike to some, Milly's a midget compared to the average New York rat, which is around 10 inches long and 9-12 ounces.
