    Default The tiny puppy set to be the world's smallest dog

    He is a third of the size of an average guinea pig, and weighs in at just a few ounces - but this tiny puppy could be a big deal when it comes to world records.
    The miniscule chihuahua-Jack Russell cross - appropriately named Tom Thumb by its owners - is a serious contender for the title of being the smallest dog on the planet.
    Little Tom was born just three weeks ago as part of a surprise litter to mum Spice, a chihuahua.


    Tom Thumb

    Owners Susan and Archie Thomson were delighted when he and his brothers and sister were born at the family's West Dunbartonshire home.
    His siblings are three times the size of the tiny dog, who can fit inside a teacup and cannot reach his mum to feed when she is standing up.
    And he is unlikely to get much bigger - with some previous experience of rearing puppies through their early weeks, the couple are convinced that Tom is almost fully grown now.
    Care development officer Mr Thomson, 54, said: 'In the past 10 years we've had six chihuahua litters and I've been involved with other breeds for most of my life - but I've never seen a dog this small.
    'He's perfectly proportioned but absolutely miniscule.
    'Judging by the size of his paws and head I'd be surprised if he grew much bigger than an inch or two more.
    'He's a great wee dog and Susan's convinced he's a record breaker.'


    Tom Thumb

    With his tan-and-black markings, Tom Thumb measures less than four inches from the tip of his nose to the end of his tail and only weighs about three ounces.
    He was born last month as part of a five-dog litter - although, sadly, one of Tom's brothers has died since then.
    And the Thomsons thought it might also be touch-and-go for Tom Thumb, because he was so small - but he has proved them wrong.
    For although Tom's siblings tower above him, he has plenty of fighting spirit to make sure he gets his fair share at feeding time.
    Care worker Mrs Thomson, 51, added: 'He’s the first in there at feeding time and doesn’t let the bigger ones bully him.
    'In fact, when Spice stands up, Tom Thumb goes with her because his suck is so strong.'
    No-one was available for comment at Guinness World Records yesterday, but their website records the smallest living dog in the world as Heaven Sent Brandy, a four-year-old chihuahua from Florida in the USA, who is six inches long.
    That means Tom Thumb is seriously in the running to challenge for the title - juts as long as he doesn't get too much bigger.

    blech, chihuahuas.. horrible rat dog things. Some queermo had one in the elevator, and as soon as i stepped in it started snapping and barking its head off the whole ride down.

    Its owner explained that it loses its shit on anybody it doesn't know. What a pleasant animal.

    Why the fuck would anybody want one of those things

    So cute... but I'd hate to have a dog that small... I'd always be afraid of squishing it.

    Cause that's not how they all are. If you have one that's treated like a normal dog and socialized, they're nice little dogs. If a dog acts like a retard with people it's usually just channeling its' owner.

    Cute. But I'd be afraid of stepping on the lil bugger.

    My dog takes bigger shits than the size of this dog.

    He is cute but he wouldn't last two minutes in my house. Someone would step on him for sure.

    He's cute, but count me in on the people who would be afraid to step on him.
