Sandra Devall has found a little friend in 5-month-old puppy Grace – really little.

Measuring just 6 in. long and weighing 1 lb., 6 oz., Gracie could be the smallest dog in the world, according to the U.K.’s The Sun. The tiny pug weighs 4 ounces less than Brandy the Chihuahua from Largo, Fla., who is the current Guinness World Records holder for smallest living dog.

Gracie, who vets believe may suffer from dwarfism, is so tiny that she wears a leash made for a cat when she takes walks around town in Great Yarmouth, England.

“Everyone stops and crowds round,” Devall told The Sun. “She loves it.”
