LUCY Smallest Working Dog on the Planet - A Yorkie!

A mini Yorkshire terrier from New Jersey is now in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Tiny "Lucy," who weighs just 2 1/2 pounds, was named the world's smallest working dog last week, bumping out a 6.6-pound police dog in Japan.

She was headed for an animal shelter two years ago when a woman brought her into the Paw Dazzle pet boutique in Smithville. This dog was almost HOMELESS! Who could not love that face?? How can people give up their dogs to a shelter?? I think it is THEIR responsibility, to find that dog a new home!

Shop owner Sally Leone Montufar decided to keep her. She tells The Courier-Post of Cherry Hill the Yorkie was lethargic then. But Lucy was brought back to health and has been trained for her therapy work. She visits hospitals, nursing homes and special schools, often wearing dresses and bonnets.

I'm not big fun of these "teacup" yorkies, but I must indeed, they are soooo cute :)
