When his owner shouts “Heel!” Ducky the dog has little choice but to take things literally. At just over ankle height, the three-year-old short-coat chihuahua from Boston in the U.S. has just been named the smallest living dog in the world by Guinness World Records.At only 4.9in tall, Ducky weighs less than 1lb 6oz. His head is the size of a large strawberry. “He is such a funny little guy,” says his owner Lisa Messier, who bought him for £2,500 when he was 13 months old. “He doesn’t go out for walks, but if you want to go out, you can just put him in your bag.”
Chihuahuas are the smallest dogs in the world – in fact, the only “natural” toy breed. Other small pups are the result of breeding down larger breeds. Celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Madonna are well-known fans of chihuahuas. Ducky succeeds Danka Kordak, a 5.4in chihuahua from Slovakia, in the record books.
