The Shortest Living Dog is Only 3.5 Inches Tall!

Meet Pearl, the world's shortest dog!

Meet Pearl, the world’s shortest dog! She’s a two-year-old chihuahua that’s shorter than a popsicle stick and only about as long as a dollar bill! The pocket-sized pup is the new official holder of the Guinness World Record for shortest dog alive. She was born in Orlando, Florida and is actually related to the previous record holder, Milly, who had the same owner. Pearl’s owner says she is a bit of a diva. She enjoys eating high-quality food like chicken and salmon and loves “dressing up.”
