Meet the World’s Smallest Dog Tinier Than a Popsicle Stick!

In April 2023, the Guinness World Records declared Pearl, a two-year-old female Chihuahua, the world’s tiniest dog, cementing her status as the world’s smallest four-legged creature.

Pearl, a two-year-old chihuahua, was officially recognized by the Guinness World Records as the world’s smallest dog in April. Pearl was born on September 1, 2020, and measures only 9.14 cm (3.59 in) in height and 12.7 cm (5.0 in), making her shorter than a popsicle and almost the same length as a dollar note. Weighing just 553 g (1.22 lb), Pearl is a true wonder of nature.

It’s worth mentioning that Pearl, the current holder of the world’s smallest dog title by Guinness World Records, is related to Miracle Milly, the former record holder. Both chihuahuas weighed just 28 grams at birth, highlighting how extraordinary their tiny size truly is.

Pearl’s owner Vanesa Semler recently introduced Pearl on the Lo Show Dei Record, an Italian TV show. While interacting with Gerry Scotti, Semler said, “We’re blessed to have her and to have this unique opportunity to break our own record and share with the world this amazing news.”

Pearl’s world record as the smallest dog was verified by taking her height measurements three times at different intervals at the Crystal Creek Animal Hospital in Orlando, in accordance with the guidelines set by Guinness World Records. Pearl’s measurements were taken from the base of her front foot up to the top of the withers in a vertical line. What sets Pearl apart from other chihuahuas is her calm and composed demeanor.

Last May, the Guinness World Records declared Zeus, a two-year-old American Great Dane, the world’s tallest living dog (male). Zeus stands at an impressive height of 3 feet 5.18 inches (1.046 meters) and resides with the Davis family in Bedford, Texas. Brittany Davis adopted Zeus when he was only eight weeks old.
