Tiny Puppy Beyonce May Be World’s Smallest Dog

Last Friday was National Puppy Day and coincidentally, a very tiny puppy was revealed to the internet world.

SFGate put out an article telling the tale of Beyonce, a tiny puppy who was born on March 8th. She is the puppy of a stray mama dog who was rescued by the Grace Foundation of Northern California and barely survived being born.

Beyonce was not breathing at first and needed mouth-to-mouth and chest compressions by a veterinarian. Miraculously, she survived, and is now being spotlighted as the poster child–er– pup to highlight the importance of spaying and neutering pets.

Measuring up to roughly the size of an iPhone, Beyonce may possibly be the world’s smallest dog.
