Pauze wouldn't confirm the price, but said the dog is worth $13,000.

"He's really quiet and extremely loving," said Pauze.

The dog is two-and-a-half inches long and stands just under two inches tall, according to Pauze.

Pauze said the dog, which she called Mr. Amazing, is a great lap dog that loves to be groomed and wear clothes. 

The five-month-old dog weighs 330 grams.

Pauze said Hilton found her company on Twitter before contacting her about the sale, which led to followup emails, texts and phone calls.

Hilton soon took to Twitter to announce her new arrival, asking if anyone had a name suggestion for the puppy.
