A puppy named after pop star Beyonce could set the world’s record for tiniest dog. Animal rescuers in Northern California claim that the female Dachshund mix was so small at birth that she could fit into a spoon.

Beyonce was born without a heartbeat.

Vets managed to revive her through chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

At two weeks, she’s now the size of a business card, the Mirror reported.

The Grace Foundation, based in El Dorado County, revealed that animal control picked up Beyonce’s pregnant mother, and she gave birth to a litter of five on March 8.

The foundation said that she’d be ready for adoption in about two weeks.

Meanwhile, it has also submitted an application to Guinness World Records for world’s smallest dog.
