A dog that shares the namesake of one of the biggest pop stars in the world could have her own claim to fame. Animal rescuers in California say the female Dachshund mix was so small at birth that she could fit into a spoon. Beyonce is two weeks and the size of a business card. The group picked up Beyonce's pregnant mother and she gave birth to a litter of five. Beyonce was the last, and was born without a heartbeat. Veterinarians revived her through chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. She's healthy enough for adoption in about two-weeks. The organization submitted paperwork to Guinness World Records to crown her world's smallest dog.
