In fact, breeding “teacup” pooches has become a huge market. Now, people are searching for the smallest dog they can find; one that can easily sit in a teacup. There have been many breeds that have gone through the process and come out the other side a few sizes smaller, including chihuahuas, yorkies, and beagles. The smallest dog in the world award now goes to one of these breeds, as a chihuahua named Milly took home the prize for measuring in at just 3.8 inches. That’s over an inch smaller than a can of soda. Although not all the dogs measure up to these miniscule heights, there are several tiny dog breeds that fill the homes of the nation.
Small dogs might not take up a lot of room at home, but they can come with enough personality to fill an entire house with love. Now, dogs can be more than just an addition to the family; they have many significant benefits and can even be used as a fashion accessory. Tiny dogs are the perfect cuddlers, can accompany you almost anywhere, and can be easier to walk than their larger cousins. Is there no end to the great things tiny dogs can bring to any home? However, like anything in this world, some are more sought-after than others. Celebrities, fashion, and social media can all have an influence on the most popular tiny dog breeds. Regardless, these small dogs prove that they don’t need great size to show they have enough love in their hearts to go around.
