This miniature dog has got her sights set on a supersized title: Guinness World Records’ World’s Smallest Dog
Terrier crossbreed Suni weighed a miniscule 0.1lbs (45g) when she was born, and three months later at 2.36in (6cm) tall she is still smaller than her owner’s mobile phone.
Although Suni’s weight gain since then hardly breaks the scales - she now weighs 0.22lbs (100g) - veterinarians in Jarocin, Poland, do not believe she will grow to be much bigger.

Owner Anna Pohl hopes that her small dog has got what it takes to win the big crown.‘When she was born she was so small no-one thought she would survive but she has,’ Ms Pohl said.
She has been in touch with Guinness World Records officials to see if Suni measures up for the title.
‘She is a lovely little thing but you have to be very careful where you sit and where you walk,’ said Anna.
Although it seems Suni is currently the world’s smallest dog, she will not end up in the record books for a while.
Her owner better have her fingers crossed Suni doesn’t have a growth spurt within the next nine months, as Guinness World Records will not crown her before she is 12 months old.
The current record holder for the world’s smallest living dog is Boo Boo the chihuahua from Kentucky in the U.S. Measuring in at four inches tall, she has held the title since February 2008.Suni has competition not only in Boo Boo but also in a Puerto Rican teacup Chihuahua called Milly, who at four months weighed in at 0.37lb (170g).
