Jiff already was cute, lovable and talented. Now he's proven he's speedy, too.
The 4-year-old, 5-pound Pomeranian blazed into the 60th edition of the Guinness World Records book. It comes out Sept. 10.
He can run 10 meters (9.1 yards) on his hind legs in 6.56 seconds. And 5 meters (4.55 yards) on his front paws in 7.76 seconds. Both times are faster than any other dog has clocked.
Jiff is used to the spotlight. He is a regular on television, a model and a social media sensation.
Besides running, Jiff also shakes, closes doors, covers his eyes, stamps his autograph, bows and skateboards.
