Umur Beyonce sekarang mungkin sudah 3 minggu, besarnya belum sebesar iPhone dan bisa masuk kedalam cangkir kopi.
Beyonce, anjing terkecil di dunia ini sekarang dirawat oleh sebuah yayasan di California Utara namanya Grace Foundation yang memberikan kesempatan padanya untuk hidup, dan anjing kecil ini sehat serta menunggu siapa yang mau memeliharanya.
Beyonce Knowles, as the foundation named her, had to be resuscitated upon birth. "She wasn't breathing when she came out," said De Caprio. "Our vet did a little compression on her chest and she came around."
Little Beyonce weighs less than the milk bottle used to feed her and is pictured dwarfed by items like soda cans and cell phones on the foundation's Facebook page.
"She's a quarter the size of the other pups in the litter, but she's a fighter" explains De Caprio.
Beyonce's mother, along with two other dogs, was saved from euthanization at a San Bernardino shelter by the Grace Foundation earlier this month.
"We like to think (Beyonce's) had her life saved several times now. Once when we rescued her mother and again when she was resuscitated at birth," De Caprio said.
Altough small in stature, Beyonce is relatively healthy, according to De Caprio. She is even strong enough to muscle her way in among her brothers and sisters at the chow line to nurse when not being bottle-fed by foundation members.
De Caprio said the Grace Foundation will continue to care for the entire family who will all eventually be available for adoption.

Miracle : Anjing Kecil Peranakan Jack Russel Chihuahua yang dipelihara keluarga
Miracle lahir bersama empat saudaranya namun ketika dicari lagi mereka sudah mati. Kata James, bapaknya Kayley-May.
Peranakan Jack Russel Chihuahua ini sekarang dirawat ibu asuhnya yang bernama Kayley-May Coles, berumur 10 tahun, memberinya makan dengan sedotan selama sembilan hari setelah induk anjing ini membuangnya.
Sadly, they returned to find four of the puppies had died but Miracle survived and was given a clean bill of health by a vet.
James said: 'We just never dreamed she would be this small, she doesn’t even seem like a real dog.
'We really didn’t think she would make it but she has grown quite a bit already and is so much more alert than she was.
'We are keeping her to ourselves now. There is no money in the world that could buy her.'
