World's Smallest Dog?

This Chihuahua, measuring only 4 inches tall and 18 ounces, is likely to be the world's smallest dog. The dog's owner, Jenny Gomes, says that Dancer will likely be named the world's smallest living dog in the Guiness Book of World Records.

Even if Dancer outsizes another dog and misses the cut, he still has my vote for world's cutest small dog. Link [Orlando Sentinel] via Spluch

Surely it's more like 8 inches tall (have a look at the picture, 4 inches on that tape goes from the middle of the front leg up to the eyeball).

It's probably 4 inches from its belly to the middle of its back.

Still tiny, though.

I call BS on "4 inches tall." Unless that tape measure is incorrect, that puppy is much taller than that at the withers, and possibly double that to the top of the head.

Of course, the perspective in the photo might be totally an optical illusion, in which case you can disregard all of the above.

I was at a airport a few years back and saw 2 of he smallest dogs I have ever seen, I think they were terriers but cant remember for sure. the owners did say they were called tsp and tablespoon terriers I believe. has anyone heard of these types of dogs? If you can help me out that would be wonderful.

You know sad part about these pint sized pups is they are bred to be so small because people think they are "CUTE"! Your wanting a dog so tiny makes people breed runts ( the poor sickly dogs that have to be hand fed just to live) and lable them as "Tea Cup" (NO SUCH BREED)! What the breeders fail to tell you is most of these dogs have major health issues costing thousands a year in vet bills. Yet they sell these dogs for twice the price. Its "CUTE" it's also inhumane and creating a very unhealthy trend!
