  Meet Taz the tiny terrier!
Updated 19 April 2002, 20.13
Taz the tiny terrier!
In March, we introduced you to Dylan, thought to be Britain's tiniest dog at eight centimetres. But Dylan could soon be in a dog-fight over his crown.

Meet Taz the tiny terrier - he's so small, the pup fits into a cup!

Cup-a-pooch


"I'll have a pint of terrier please!"

He's a Yorkshire terrier and measures a cute 13.97 centimetres. But he's only three months old!

Which means he's just a quarter of the size of a normal Yorkie terrier.

His owner Marjorie Pearce, a dog breeder, hopes he will grow a little bit more - at least twice the size he is now.

But she has to hide him under her coat when she takes him out for walkies because he's such a hit with the locals, everyone wants to hold the wee fella.

Both Dylan and Taz are still giants though compared to the world's smallest dog which was a Dwarf Terrier measuring a miniscule 7.1 centimetres!
