As far as pooches go, he’s about as close to perfect (ahem, paw-fect) as one can get.
But that’s not why Jiff has landed a spot in the latest Guinness World Records book, which they’re calling the most comprehensive collection of facts, feats and achievements ever compiled. (It’s also Guinness World Records’s 60th anniversary.)
The L.A.-based Pomeranian is actually the fastest dog on two paws, having reached 10 meters on his hind legs in 6.56 seconds and 5 meters on his front paws in 7.76 seconds. See him in action below!
When editors of the book first set eyes on the fluffy pup, they did a double take.
“When Jiff first walked into our offices, we weren’t even sure he was real,” Guinness World Records editor-in-chief, Craig Glenday, said in a statement. “He looks like a living, breathing cuddly toy. He might be toy-sized but he’s got a huge personality, and his wealth of talents can’t be doubted.”
“BREAKING NEWS: I’m turning into a dog person! Meet @jiffpom who came to visit me,” Perry, a longtime cat lover, said on Instagram in January after hanging out with the dog. That, friends, is raw talent!
