Okay, so maybe they don't give out records for just being cute, but Jiff's talents are pretty darn adorable, so we'll just call it the same thing.
The tiny Pomeranian who was featured walking on his hind legs in Katie Perry's "Dark Horse" video, is now being recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records for his amazing two-legged skills. Jiff clocked in a speedy time of 6.56 seconds in a 10-meter walk on his hind legs and 7.76 seconds in a 5-meter walk on on his front legs. Jiff's record will appear in the 60th anniversary edition of the Guinness Book of World Records, which comes to stores in September.

"When Jiff first walked into our offices, we weren’t even sure he was real! He looks like a living, breathing cuddly toy," says Guinness World Records Editor-in-Chief, Craig Glenday. "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.”
The talented pooch recently moved from Illinois to Hollywood where he can continue to bask in the glow of his celebrity lifestyle. His parents however, have chosen to remain anonymous in all of this, allowing Jiff to be in the spotlight.
In addition to walking on two-legs and just being generally cute, Jiff can shake hands, bow, ride a skateboard stamp his own autograph.
He has been featured in a variety of ads and commercials. When not being talented, he poses for photos with pop-stars and other celebs.
