The Guinness Book of World Records named Pearl, a two-year-old chihuahua, as the tiniest dog in the entire world earlier this month. Pearl is 9.14 cm (3.59 in) tall and 12.7 cm (5.0 in) long. She was born on September 1, 2020. She is so shorter than a popsicle and nearly as long as a dollar bill. She only weighs 553 g. (1.22 lb).
It's important to know that Miracle Milly, a chihuahua who formerly held the record for being the tiniest dog in the world, is related to Pearl. Pearl was born weighing only 28 grams, just like Milly.
Vanesa Semler, Pearl's owner, recently gave Pearl her television debut on the Italian programme Lo Show Dei Record. "We're blessed to have her and to have this special opportunity to break our own record and share with the world this amazing news," Semler said in conversation with Gerry Scotti.
At the Crystal Creek Animal Hospital in Orlando, Pearl's height was measured three times at various intervals to confirm her record. According to Guinness World Records specifications, the Pearl's measures were taken in a vertical line from the ball of her front foot to the top of the withers. Unlike other chihuahuas, Pearl has a peaceful disposition, which is what makes her unique.
