Dog Who Walks on Two Legs Sets Two World Records
Jiff has a big talent packed in his little Pomeranian body.
The wee dog landed two Guinness World Records titles Wednesday: fastest 10m on hind legs (which he did in 6.56 seconds) and fastest 5m on front paws (7.76 seconds).
Jiff recently moved from Illinois to Los Angeles to try his luck in Hollywood. He had to complete his attempts in less than 10 seconds each — and he did it on his first go.

“When Jiff first walked into our offices, we weren’t even sure he was real! He looks like a living, breathing cuddly toy,” says Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief of Guinness World Records. “He might be tiny, but he’s got a huge personality, and his wealth of talents can’t be doubted.”
His owners are remaining anonymous while Jiff gets all the attention. And the attention is nothing unusual for the pooch, who already has 1.3 million Facebook fans and more than 230,000 Instagram followers.
Jiff’s accomplishments will appear in the 60th anniversary of the Guinness Book of World Records. His titles are the first from the new book, available September 10, to be revealed by Guinness.
