According to the Huffington Post, a dog from New Jersey now holds the record for being the world's smallest working dog.
The smallest dog in the world makes her rounds each week, visiting hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers. She also works with children with disabilities, and troubled youth. Lucy has been brightening up the days of those in need for about one year.
Lucy's owner, Sally Leone Montufar says:
"Because she is so tiny, people are drawn to her -- she stops traffic."
Lucy was on her way to a shelter when Montufar met her. So Lucy has gone from being homeless to a Guinness World Records holder.
Lucy was named the world's smallest working dog last week by Guinness World Records. In the process, she beat out the previous record holder: Momo, an eight-year-old chihuahua from Japan that works as a police search-and-rescue dog who was 6 pounds, almost 4 pounds more than the new record hold.
