Her name is Miracle Milly, she is a brown Chihuahua, and, well, she's really REALLY small.

She's a cute little thing but I sure wish people would not breed them down like this.

You cannot currently send a star to Kit because you have done so within the last day.

The more prizes are awarded for unhealthy little dogs, the more breeders will go to these extremes. Milly's bulging eyes are a definite sign her skull is too small. i have a Chihuahua but he weighs a healthy 10 pounds & i can put a harness on him & take him for a walk.

A cute little monkey! But as Kit points out, I hope people are not purposely breeding dogs (or any animal) down in size or to bring out other specific traits. When people try to play "god", it never turns out well. Just think of some of the white tigers that were bred for certain characteristics and now the breeding is producing genetic freaks, deformed animals.

I am quite certain that Millie could care less about her new status. But I would wager that if she could speak human, she would say, "I don't want to be the smallest dog in the world, I want to be the healthiest dog that I can be." Thanks for Chering.

Aww, so wee. I wonder if the breeders of these little ones thinks about their medical care. Vets may be trained to work on all sizes of animals, but when they are full grown and as small as babes, there must be challenges?.

Thanks for sharing.

She is really cute but breeding has to stop! "Save the orphans in the shelters and on the street" is my motto! All my cats came from there...

This is just a phase, like so many others before, like when the disney movie about the dalmatians came out, everyone wanted one and then when the phase passed there were hundreds of dalmatians in shelters being put down because no wanted them!

Breeding "down" serves no purpose beyond momentary amusement whatsoever! In fact, it's a human-control-all-species type of genetic manipulation which ultimately hurts the breed. Let's take the KCC Terrier....did you know some breeders are messing with them to such a degree that their skulls are becoming too small for their brains....and YES, they are suffering terribly.....nice, isn't it?
