Can you imagine a smaller dog than me? Meysi the the tiny terrier weighs the same as a hamster despite being three months old

A tiny terrier - the same size as a coke can - is vying to be declared the world's smallest dog.
Little Meysi is 7cm tall, 12cm long and weighs just 0.55lb (250g) – only slightly heavier than a hamster.


The dog, three months old, is not expected to become much bigger - when Meysi was born she was a miniscule 0.01lb (45g).

Voila: Anna Pohl holding the little terrier on her outstretched hand - Meysi easily fits on

Despite her minuscule frame, she is described as a small dog with a big personality.

'Meysi is not afraid of strangers and is always ready for play,” said owner Anna Pohl, 35.

'She plays with lots of energy – lots more than is suitable for such a tiny body.

'She has a typical terrier's character and is brave. She is also fleet-footed and fast.'

Peek-a-boo! Meysi poking her head round the corner of a roll of toilet paper on the floor

Meysi was so small at birth that Anna, of Jarocin, Poland, mistook her for a piece of placenta.

She was about to drop her in the bin but then realised it was a ‘tiny living doggie’.

Anna, who works in a beauty salon for pets, spent almost every hour over the next few days battling to keep Meysi alive.

The minuscule puppy was unable to get milk from her mother because her four siblings – which weighed three times more – kept barging her out of the away.

Scary encounter: Meysi has an encounter with a cuddly bear toy sitting on the rug - it's bigger than she is!

Her weight dropped to 40g and the situation was critical until Anna decided to try feeding her with a syringe.

It worked and three months later, Meysi is ‘strong and healthy’.

She is still too small to play with her brothers and sisters and instead interacts with Anna, her husband Tomasz, son Dawid, 17, and daughter Angelika, 10.

She particularly likes Angelika and loves to 'chew and lick her nose'.

No problems: Pohl says Meysi is healthy despite her little frame and weight and wants her to win the title of World's Smallest Dog

However, the family have to be very wary where they walk and sit to avoid crushing her.

Anna says there is nothing genetically wrong with Meysi and wants her crowned as the World's Smallest Dog.

She has contacted Guinness World Records but they have said Meysi can only be officially registered once she is 12 months old.

The current record holder is Boo Hoo, a Chihuahua from Kentucky, USA, who is 4ins tall and has held the record since 2007.

Unlike MayRay, Meysi doesn't fall over every 5 seconds.

I'm happy that the dog has a good home, but this really shouldn't be bred. I can just imagine the puppy mills being done in a cardboard box.

odds are fairly good it's a result of a mill breeding.

i have a small dog too, she's over 1 year old and still fits in a coffee cup. understandably she's very cautious around her surroundings because of her size, she's always alert unlike my other regular sized dogs, the ironic thing is that her brother is atleast 7 times her size and he was born only approx 30 mins before her.

Not a small dog person. My dog is 110 pounds. But this dog is adorable, I hope it lives a long life and not have medical problems.
