People from Puerto Rico have a small dog. The dog is the smallest dog in the world. It is a new record.

The dog is a female. It is only 9.65 centimetres (3.8 inches) tall. The dog is as tall as an iPhone.

The dog's owners are afraid. The dog is too small. It could get injured easily.

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
