World’s Oldest Dog Bobi Breaks Guinness Record

Guinness World Records has crowned a 30-year-old Portuguese dog the world’s oldest canine, breaking a record for a century.

Bobi is a purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo, a breed with an average 12- to 14-year lifespan.

Australia’s Bluey, who passed away in 1939 at the age of 29 years and 5 months, was the previous oldest dog ever.

Bobi was 30 years and 226 days old as of February 1 and is considered to be in good health for his age.

According to Guinness World Records, his ripe old age has been confirmed by the pet database of the Portuguese government, which the National Union of Veterinarians runs.

He was born with three siblings in an outbuilding and has spent his entire childhood with the Costa family in the village of Conqueiros, close to Portugal’s west coast.

Eight-year-old Leonel Costa claimed that although his parents had to put the puppies to sleep because they had too many pets, Bobi managed to escape.

The dog was kept hidden from Leonel and his brothers’ parents until he was eventually found and adopted by the family, who fed him the same food they did.

Bobi doesn’t hesitate and picks our food when given a choice between a can of animal food and a piece of meat, according to Mr. Costa, who always soaks the meal in water to eliminate most of the flavour.

Bobi had lived a primarily trouble-free existence, according to Mr. Costa, except for a scare in 2018 when he was hospitalized after abruptly falling from respiratory issues. Mr. Costa attributes Bobi’s longevity to the “quiet, serene atmosphere” he lives in.

Given that Bobi’s mother lived to be 18, it might also run in the family.

However, Bobi has suffered the effects of time; he is now having difficulty walking, and his vision is deteriorating.

Bobi is the “last of a long generation of creatures,” according to Mr. Costa, who calls him “one of a kind.”

Just two weeks prior, Spike the Chihuahua, who is 23 years old, was recognized by Guinness World Records as the most senior living dog. Bobi is now the oldest dog in history.

Since then, Guinness has updated its records and declared Bobi the oldest and oldest dog to live.
