Yorkie Sets Record For Smallest Working Dog

Filed under: AwardzCuteness!YorkieDog

Lucy, the Yorkshire terrier, has just been named the Guinness Book of Records' smallest working dog.

She is a therapy dog, visiting disabled children and the elderly.

The three-year-old pup works for Leashes Of Love, making her rounds at nursing homes, special schools and hospitals in New Jersey.

Lucy is only just repaying the favor, she herself was shown some real kindness… by her owner.

Her owner saw her when a woman came into her pet boutique with her and said she was headed for the shelter.

She said:

"She was so pitiful and lethargic I couldn't leave her. As any mother would, I vowed to help her. I wasn't going to turn my back."

So now Lucy spends her time being tiny, cute and helping others.

What a good dog!
