Jiff the Pup is the World’s Fastest Dog on Two Paws [Video]

Meet Jiff, the world’s fastest dog dog on two paws.

The small and adorable Pomeranian has joined the Guinness World Records book for his incredible speed on two paws. Los Angeles Jiff is able to cover 10 meters (32.8 feet) on his hind legs just in 6.56 seconds. Walking on his front paws, he can zip over 5 meters (16.4 feet) in 7.76 seconds.

The folks at Guinness even posted the video (you can watch it above) to celebrate Jiff and its new book, set for release Sept. 10. It’s the latest but we hope not the last one achievement for the famous canine, who suddenly became world-known sensation. He’s even appeared in a Katy Perry music video,for the song Dark Horse.

The adorable pooch has a growing legion of fans on Facebook (1.3 Million likes), Instagram (232,000 followers), Twitter (14k+ followers) and YouTube (500,000+ views).

Apart from filming for music videos and walking on two paws the dog can also shake hands, bow, ride a skateboard and even stamp his own autograph.

Jiff, who perhaps unsurprisingly hails from Los Angeles, California, practices running on his front and hind legs daily.

To set the new records the small dog had to complete the 5m and 10m distances in less than 10 seconds, which he managed to do at his first attempt.

Unlike Jiff, the dog’s owners appeared to be a bit more camera shy. They asked to remain anonymous, not wishing to steal attention away from their celebrity pom.

The talented Pomeranian is the first reveal from the latest Guinness World Records annual released in September, which will mark the 60th anniversary of the world’s best-selling copyright book.

Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief, Craig Glenday, said: “When Jiff first walked into our offices, we weren’t even sure he was real! He looks like a living, breathing cuddly toy.

“He might be tiny but he’s got a huge personality, and his wealth of talents can’t be doubted. He certainly deserves his place in the new Guinness World Records book, which is particularly special this year because it marks our 60th anniversary.

“Jiff is just one of the many incredible new record holders in the book, and the first of many special announcements we’ll be making.”
