Lucy - World's smallest dog 2012

A tiny dog named Lucy has made her biggest achievement to date after landing a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.

There's a good chance she'll get a few extra Choccy Drops in her pay packet after receiving this award.

A tiny dog called Lucy has been named by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's smallest working dog.
   
The little Yorkshire terrier is just 5.7inches high and weighs only 2.5lb.

She was handed the certificate in recognition of her work as a therapy dog with the elderly and disabled.


The 5.7-inch tall, two-and-a-half pound pooch has been crowned the world's smallest working dog - smashing the previous record by three-and-a-half pounds.

The diminutive Yorkshire terrier works as a therapy dog with the elderly and disabled in New Jersey.

She visits hospitals and nursing homes to bring joy to those who need cheering up.

Her owner, Sally Leone Montufar, explained how the dog is now helping others are overcoming adversity as a puppy.

'A lady came into the pet boutique I work in with several dogs, hoping someone would claim them before she had to take them to the shelter,' she said.

'She was so pitiful and lethargic I couldn't leave her.

'As any a mother would, I vowed to help her. I wasn't going to turn my back. The others looked pretty healthy but she didn't.'

After nursing Lucy back to good health and sharing her with the needy around her local town of Smithville, Sally decided to see if there was some way to mark the dog's achievements.

'I said I bet she's not the tiniest, but I'm sure she's the tiniest therapy dog,' explained Sally.
