Meysi is a top contender to be named the world's smallest dog at 3 inches tall.


In this YouTube video shared by Barcroft TV on November 8, 2012, you can learn more about this extremely tiny terrier.

Meysi is about the size of a soda can at 7 cm tall, 12 cm long, and weighing just 150 grams. She is quite possibly the smallest dog on the planet.

Anna Pohl from Jarocin, Poland, the dog’s owner, described her pet as a tiny puppy with a great personality.

“Meysi is not afraid of strangers and is always ready for play. She plays with lots of energy – lots more than is suitable for such a tiny body," Anna said. "She has a typical Terrier’s character and is brave. She is also fleet-footed and fast.”


When Meysi was born, Anna thought that the dog was just a piece of placenta and almost threw her in the bin. Luckily, she noticed just in time that the tiny dog was moving.

Unfortunately, Meysi's health was critical because she was 16 times lighter than the heaviest of her five siblings, and they restricted her from getting milk.

Anna then decided to feed Meysi using a syringe.

She told the Gazeta Jarocinska: “The worst was the first six weeks. Zero sleep. I was feeding her day and night, every half hour. Sometimes I ran out of strength, had to call out of work."

Three months later, the tiny pup became a healthy and playful dog.

“She is a lovely little thing but you have to be very careful where you sit and where you walk,” the owner said.


Anna was hoping to get Meysi into the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's smallest dog.

Her pet has two possible categories that she can qualify - World’s Smallest Dog based on height and World’s Smallest Dog based on length.

The current smallest dog living, in terms of height, according to Guinness World Records, is a female Chihuahua called Milly, who measured 9.65 cm tall, and the smallest dog in terms of length is Heaven Sent Brandy, a female chihuahua who measured 15.2 cm from the nose to the tip of the tail.
