Meet Gracie the pint-sized pug

This tiny dog stole the hearts of the Stylist team when the images landed in our inbox this morning.

Gracie, a five-month old pug from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, measures at just six inches long, meaning she fits neatly (and terribly cutely) into owner Sandra Devall's hand.

It’s hard to believe, but Gracie is the same breed as Lenny, our canine correspondent from London Fashion Week - though we're not sure she could fill out a Mulberry coat in quite the same way! Vets believe the diminuative dog’s ususual size is down to dwarfism.

Gracie is so small she has to wear a kitten harness when she pops out for her (very short) walks, but owner Sandra Devall insists she loves the attention, telling The Sun, “Everyone stops and crowds round. She loves it”.

And Gracie's dimensions could see her make it into the Guiness Book Of World Records. The 2012 volume, released this month, cites the world's smallest dog in length as Heaven Sent Brandy, a female chihuahua from Florida who measures 15.2 cm (6 inches) from the nose to the tip of the tail.

Sadly we’ll have to wait until next year to find out if little Gracie makes it into the World Record Books, but until then take a closer look at this adorable pint-sized pug below.

ABOVE AND BELOW: We imagine playing "go fetch" is quite a challenge when you're almost the same size as the ball.
