Will Tiny Beyoncé Replace Boo As America's Favorite Puppy?

Move over Boo, here comes Beyoncé - the world's cutest and probably tiniest puppy! The last born of five siblings, the female Dachshund mix dog was so small when born, that she weighed just one ounce and could fit on a spoon. Now two week old, the cutie can still comfortably fit atop a credit card or even, an iPhone.

Though Beyoncé, is now in good care, such was not the case just a short time ago. Her mother, a one-year-old dog named Casey was abandoned by its owner in San Bernardino, California, whilst she still pregnant.

The stray dog was picked up and placed in a dog pound, who believe it or not, were planning to put her down, because they did not have enough room to accommodate the mother and her soon to be born litter. Fortunately, a last minute plea was answered by Grace Foundation, a rescue center in El Dorado Hills, California, who agreed to take in the soon-to-be-mother.

However, that was not the end of Beyoncé's ordeal. When born, she was so small that the veterinarian, Dr. Michael Russell, thought she was stillborn - She had no heartbeat and was not breathing! He tried giving her heart compressions, but nothing worked.

Just as he was about to declare her dead, his assistant Beth De Caprio jumped in and began performing a mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. While it was not the most pleasant thing to do, it did clear the tiny dog's lungs and she began taking a few small breaths and then one large one - That's when they knew they had managed to save her! They decided to name this brave dog, who survived against all odds, Beyoncé because of the famous singer's super-hit song 'I am a survivor'.

The puppy still has to be bottle fed every hour because her mouth is so small. Though much smaller then her siblings, she is healthy and has even gained over three ounces. While Beyoncé, who is not expected to grow heavier than 1.5 pounds, is not officially the world's tiniest dog, the center has sent in a fast track application to the Guinness Book Of Records, to see if she can snag the title from six-year old Chihuahua, Boo Boo who is 4 inches tall and weighs 1.5 pounds!

The best news of all is that this little, soon to be famous cutie, is looking for a permanent home - Something to keep in mind just in case, you are in the search for a super cute pet!
