This Adorable Pug May Be the Smallest in the World


In January, Joanne Astley’s pug Ruby gave birth to a litter of four puppies and one of them turned out to be a bit different from the others. Pip weighs about 1 lb. and is less than 4 inches tall, making her owner think that she could be the smallest pug in the world. “She must be Britain’s smallest pug – if not the smallest pug in the world,” Astley told Daily Mail. After she was born, Pip ended up surviving numerous cases of pneumonia caused by her cleft palate, but vets say that she is completely healthy and that her size is not having a harmful effect on her.

According to Guinness World Records, the smallest living dog is a female Chihuahua named Lily, who is only 3.8 inches tall. In terms of length, chihuahua Heaven Sent Brandy is the world’s smallest, measuring a mere 6 inches from nose to tail. Now that she is four months old, Pip is half the size of a normal pug, so only time will tell if she is able to measure up when it comes to world records. For right now, the adorable pup seems to enjoy being safely carried around in her owner’s handbag, especially since people tend to admire her petite stature. “People stop and stare – they can’t believe she’s real, they all think she’s a toy,” explained Astley.

R.I.P. Giant George: World’s Tallest Dog dies

Doggone it! According to an Arizona Daily Star article published on Oct. 18,2013, the World’s Tallest Dog has died. Giant George, the larger than life, one-of-a-kind dog, passed away last evening on Oct. 17, 2013.

According to his official Facebook page (and yes, he has one):

“It is with a heavy heart that we announce Giant George died last night. George passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones; one month before his eighth birthday. We appreciate the love and support you have given Giant George over the last several years. We look forward to honoring his spirit by continuing his charitable works.”

Giant George

It’s hard to believe the blue Great Dane who grew to 43 inches tall from paw to shoulders, measured over seven feet from nose to tail and tipped the scale at a whopping 245 pounds, was actually the runt of the litter when he was born! But the “little” guy touched the hearts of Dave and Christie Nasser who ended up adopting him when he was about 7 weeks old.

Of course they had no idea George would one day become the World’s Tallest Dog. Eating 110 pounds of food each month, no ordinary dog house would ever do for George. No sir! He slept in his own queen-size bed. Life was not to “ruff” for gorgeous George.

His amazing “feet” didn’t go unnoticed, either. In fact, the record-holding canine didn’t have just one title – he had two. In 2010, Guinness World Records named George the Tallest Dog Ever and World’s Tallest Dog. It just goes to show you, sometimes size really does matter! For more information on this beloved dog’s amazing “tail,” please read his story, Giant George: Life With the World’s Biggest Dog.

George was born on Nov. 17, 2005 and passed away nearly eight years later. R.I.P, gentle giant.
