My favourite harness is a buddy belt. Here is a link showing you some
http://shop.buddy-belts.com

The smallest size is a 1 which measures 8-10 inches around the chest. Hopefully this will be small enough.

As a tiny pup I used a Kitten or ferret harness. Then moved to the buddy belt

I waited til mine had their vaccines and got a little bigger to use a harness. But if you must have one right away, then I agree to go with a kitten or ferret harness. Buddy belts are too expensive to buy for a tiny pup only for them to grow out of it weeks later. I'd invest in a buddy belt when she's around 6 months. They are the best!

I used a ferret harness first. They come in sizes too! I also got a ferret carrier. My dogs LOVE them. One prefers her ferret carrier over the 'big' (chihuahua size) crate I had in her pen!

For tiny ones (2-3 lbs.), the Lil'Pals works well for us. Similar to a ferret harness. I just got a new one today. She can't wiggle out of this style. It's soft and supportive. Some Petco stores carry them. Less than $20. Buddy Belts are awesome but kind of pricey to only use a couple months.
