The Next Smallest Dog in the World?

Munchkin is a teeny tiny Yorkshire Terrier born on February 7th, 2006. At almost a year and half, Munchkin now weighs only 1 pound and 13 ounces. She measures 10 inches from head to tail and 5 inches from the ground to her shoulder. Completely healthy and full of energy, her owners, Teresa Meng and Mike Hsiao, believe that she could possibly be the World's Smallest Yorkie, if not the World's Smallest Dog. Through their love of dogs, Teresa and Mike opened a luxury online dog boutique, small dog clothes and accessories, along with making Munchkin their official mascot.

Munchkin's owners were a little worried about their Yorkie being so small when she was puppy. They were aware of the dangers involved with extremely small dogs, such as hypoglycemia, a condition where a dog's blood sugar drops below normal inducing a coma like state. However, since Munchkin was born, she never showed any signs of being unhealthy. In fact, her owners state that they have never seen a Yorkie with as much energy as Munchkin.

"She zips all over our house at lightning fast speed, and has a vertical jump that could make Michael Jordan jealous" states Mike Hsiao.

Although not official, Munchkin's owners believe she may be the world's smallest Yorkie, if not the world's smallest dog. Currently, the world's smallest dog according to the Guiness Book of World records is Brandi, a Chihuahua measuring 6 inches from head to tail and weighing less than 2 pounds. Although Munchkin measures 10 inches long, she only weighs 1 pound 13 ounces. The previous title for the smallest Yorkie in the world was held by Pinnochio, weighing in at only 1 pound and measuring 8 inches from head to tail. Unfortunately, Pinnochio died on June 1st 2004, at only two and half years of age.

As far as future plans for Munchkin, her owners just want her to be healthy and live a long life. Mike and Teresa also plan on entering her into more contests around the San Diego area. So far, Munchkin has racked up a couple contest wins including the "Cutest Dog" category at the 2007 Kiwanis Club Ugliest Dog Contest, and "Scariest Dog" category at the 2006 Daily Pet Costume Contest.

Muchkin's owners also see possible plans of using her as a dog model for print ads and commercials.

"Munchkin is definitely one of a kind. If she's not the World's Smallest Dog, then she definitely is the World's cutest dog. Just look at her photos wearing cute pieces of small dog clothes! We want to share Munchkin with the world to show everyone just how darling she is," states Teresa.
