When Beyoncé was born on March 8, she was abnormally small, had no heartbeat and wasn't breathing. A veterinarian on the scene was able to get her heart started, and Beth DeCaprion, founder of The Grace Foundation, gave the tiny puppy mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
Since then, the pup has been bottle-fed every hour and, according to the foundation, is "normal in every other way." Beyoncé is expected to only grow to about 1 ½ pounds.

The foundation is now applying to the Guinness Book of World Records to see if Beyoncé could nab the world's smallest puppy title.
As for the pup's name, DeCaprion said it best: "We wanted to give her a very strong person to aspire to be."
