England's Smallest Dog Is Only 4 Inches Long

Meet Tyson.  He's a Lhasa Apso-Chihuahua crossbreed that's so small he has to be carried around in a hamster cage.

Five-month-old Tyson is only 4 inches long and weighs just 11 ounces.  Tyson is adorable as can be, but his small stature has provided some challenges for his owner, Rosemarie McLinden.

McLinden says she feeds him herself because he was too small to latch onto his mother.  "We had to take him away from the rest of the litter because he is so small they think of him as a squeaky toy," she said.

Tyson's so small that McLinden can't find a collar for him.  Finding a toy for him to play with has also been difficult. "He has one ball that he likes to chase," she said.  "We found a practice golf ball that he can use, but even that is bigger than his head.
