London, Sep 16 (ANI): A dog has made his way into the record books for having world's longest tongue.
Due to his appearance, his first owners left Puggy a 10 year-old Pekingese, to die.
But Guinness World Records officials have determined that his tongue is longer than any other dogs.
He has secured a spot in the Guinness World Records 2011 after judges were told how his 4.5in (11.43cm) tongue was almost as long as his entire body.
"People who meet Puggy for the first time do a lot of double takes; they are in total disbelief and are amused by his unique appearance," the Telegraph quoted his new owners, from Texas, United States, Becky Stanford, as saying.
"It means a great deal to us that he has accomplished what he has. From being a stray dog, being dumped, to being a Guinness World Record Holder is just phenomenal. I just can't believe it," Stanford added. (ANI)
