Pomeranian Is Guinness' Fastest Dog on All Twos

//

A spry Pomeranian named Jiff has been named the fastest dog on two legs, in two categories, by Guinness World Records.

Jiff now holds the fastest time for a dog traversing 10 meters on its hind legs, and for covering 5 meters on its front paws. He ran the front-pawed 5 meters (16.4 feet) in 7.76 seconds and the hind-legged 10 meters (32.8 feet) in 6.56 seconds.

The nimble pup will be featured in the 60th edition of the Guinness World Record book, due on September 10.

Jiff does all of his training out of his home in Los Angeles, where he keeps himself sharp by doing the hind- and front-leg-running thing every day. His owners are unknown to the public and wish to keep it that way.

And, oh, by the way, Jiff can also ride a skateboard, shake hands, stamp out his "autograph" and bow.

As would be expected, Jiff is already an Internet celebrity, with his own thriving Facebook presence -- to the tune of more than 1 million "Likes" -- and strong followings on the social-media triumvirate of Twitter, Instagram and Youtube. He's even appeared in a few television ads and a video by singer Katy Perry.

Jiff gives hope to any person or pet who has ever stood on their hands and thought, "What if I run over there, really fast?"
