Meysi, the latest candidate for being the world’s smallest dog, is from Poland, as shown in the video below. Her owner, Anna Pohl of Jarocin, Poland is now hoping that she can enter Guinness World Records (GWR) later.

As noted at Jarocinska.pl, a Polish news site on October 15, 2012, Ms. Pohl turned her life upside down when Meysi, a tiny Terrier puppy, was born three months ago, because she only weighed just 45 grams (around 0.1 lbs) and about 2 inches long. She said she thought her dog would not make it.
“The worst was the first six weeks. I had zero sleep because I had to watch over consistently and feed her every every thirty minutes. One of the veterinarians told me that I stay awake at night if she cannot eat well during daytime.” Ms. Pohl told the paper, as translated to English via Google Translate.
“Her sister is three times her size. She eats on her own now… but she’s too small to bathe… She eats Gerber baby food on her own. You can tell by her round belly that she’s got a good appetite.” She was quoted by the New York Daily News on her YouTube video.
“Sometimes I ran out of strength, had to call out of work. I have to keep Meysi in a cage when I’m not around because I’m afraid she’ll get stepped on. She is a lovely little thing, but you have to be very careful where you sit and where you walk.” Ms. Pohl added, with her dog Meysi now only a bit bigger than her smartphone.
According to Central European News/Europics Photo Agency (CEN), Meysi now weighs about 3.25 ounces (92 grams), despite the fact that she is being constantly fed, adding that veterinarians said they do not think Meysi will grow much more.
Ms. Pohl said she is hoping that Meysi could be known one day as the world’s smallest dog, but Guinness World Records only recognizes dogs that are at least one year old, and they have no record for the world’s smallest puppy. GWR‘s world’s smallest dog (living) today in terms of length is Heaven Sent Brandy from Florida, USA.
