Guinness Book's 'World's Smallest Dog' awarded to rescued Jersey pooch

Guinness Book's 'World's Smallest Dog' awarded to rescued Jersey pooch

A tiny New Jersey canine is standing tall today, having been named the “world’s smallest working dog” by the Guinness Book of World Records.

3-year-old mini Yorkshire terrier Lucy, owned by Sally Leone Montufar of Absecon, is just six inches long, 5.7 inches high and weighs a mere 2.5 pounds, but is living proof that good things come in small packages.

Just ask those she has visited in hospitals, schools and nursing homes through the group Leashes of Love in Cherry Hill.

“I call her small but mighty,” Montufar told the New York Post. “She’s got a sweet personality.”

Lucy was homeless just two years ago when she was brought to the pet boutique Montufar used to run in Historic Smithville with several other dogs that were on their way to an animal shelter. The visitor was hoping someone would agree to take them. Montufar fell in love with Lucy.
