Angry World's smallest dog only 4" tall

Personally I don't think this is something worth competing in, but anyway....
If you want to see a 4" Chihuahua, here are two videos, one from the US and one from the UK.

I saw this little baby on the news the other day. Cute, but definitely not worth competing to find the smallest.

Completely agree with you skunkstripe, nothing to be proud of. Cute little dog, but no way would I want one that small!

Ah, cute little girl. Sounds like she's pretty spoiled and well taken care of, though.

I'll stick to my 50+ pound pups.

Aww, poor little thing. She sounds like she's well-taken care of though. I agree with you Kay, I, too, will stick with my big dogs.

yes its cute, but i think its wrong to breed for this reason...what are the health complications, are vets going to be able to operate on such a small animal if required. i admit i do not know about mini, toy and teacup dogs, but something about it just does not sit right with me.

Sweet little or tiny thing. I like large dogs, I would end up stepping on it. lol. Just too tiny to do anything great with.? Sure would not eat much or make a big mess though. lol

If she doesn't die early of some genetic defect from being so small, she'll certainly die prematurely of malnutrition, being fed ONLY ground turkey, peas, and carrots! If the woman is going to home cook, she needs to do her research. >X.x;<

Most common down-size breeders that try to lesser the size of the cartiera standard breeds
Toy (Miniature Schnauzer)
Teacup Shih Tzu
Teacup Maltese
Teacup Yorkie
Teacup Chihuahua
Teacup Pomeranian
Teacup Pekingese
Teacup Poodles

It's sadden that any breeders would do to a dog! They look unhealthy, malnutrition, look as if they have birth defects. They might be cute! BUT -- one line down the road they might not grow up to become a elderly dog
