Lucy is a Yorkshire Terrier who recently set a Guinness World Record. She weighs 2.5 lbs and has been named the world's smallest working dog. Lucy goes to work as a therapy dog and visits hospitals, rehabilitation centers, and nursing homes. She also works with children with disabilities.
This sunshine story almost didn't happen. Lucy's human met her at a shelter, and at the time, Lucy was a sorry sight. After being lovingly nursed back to health, Lucy now spreads the love to others who need it.
The previous record holder was Momo, an eight-year-old Chihuahua from Japan who works as a police search-and-rescue dog. She has an advantage in many situations; she can squeeze into places the larger dogs cannot go.
