Beyonce was born in an animal shelter in Northern California. She's tinier than a tea cup, and at birth fit into a spoon. Since making the news, the shelter says adoption offers have poured in for the dog.

RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne. A tiny puppy with a big name may take the crown for the world's smallest dog. Beyonce was born in an animal shelter in northern California. She's tinier than a teacup. A Daschund crossed, the shelter thinks, with a Chihuahua. At birth, she fit into a spoon. At two weeks, she could sleep on a cell phone. Since she made news, the shelter says adoption offers have poured in for the teeny Beyonce, who may eventually weigh a pound and a half. It's MORNING EDITION.
