Lucy, The World’s Tiniest Dog in NJ
The world’s smallest working dog weighs in at only two and a half pounds, and is less than 6 inches long. This 3 year-old Yorkshire Terrier, named Lucy has just been names the world’s smallest working dog in the world according to The Guinness Book of World Records. Lucy stole the title away from a recue dog in Japan that is 6 pounds.
Lucy lives in Absecon and works as a therapy dog, through the Leashes of Love Program that is based in Cherry Hill, NJ.
This tiny dog makes her weekly rounds visiting nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and hospitals. She also takes time to work with troubled youth and children with disabilities. Lucy being so tiny stops traffic and it seems people are drawn to her.
Lucy has been helping those in need for about a year and seems to brighten up those peoples lives. Lucy’s owner decided to take her home after a woman walked into Paw Dazzle pet boutique. The little pooch popped her head out of a doggie tote and the owner knew she had to have her.
She was not in good shape when the owner first adopted her, but after a couple of visits to the vet, Lucy is doing great.
The owner hopes that by spreading the word about Lucy and the work she does will encourage other people to rescue dogs in need of a home!
