LEESBURG – Meet tiny Dancer, a rust-colored, long-haired Chihuahua that may just be the world’s smallest dog, weighing 18 ounces and standing not much more than 4 inches tall.
Dancer’s owner, Jenny Gomes, said the diminutive Lake County canine may be on his way to being named the world’s smallest living dog by Guinness World Records.
And Dancer may have a legitimate claim to the title. The last smallest dog — measured by height — was Danka Kordak of Slovakia, which stood 5.4 inches high, according to Guinness officials.
If he’s the smallest dog, then he’s probably going to be the meanest. With dogs, it usually works out that way. Anybody ever own a Dachshund?
