World’s oldest dog crowned by Guinness Book of Records
Bobi, a 30-year-old Rafeiro do Alentejo, has been crowned the world’s oldest living dog and oldest dog ever by Guinness World Records, breaking a record that stood for almost a century.
It comes just weeks after Spike, 23, was given the title on 19 January.
The organisation later announced that it had found an even older dog – Bobi, who lives in Portugal.
Bobi’s breed normally has a life expectancy of around 12 to 14 years.
Bluey, an Australian dog who died in 1939, was the previous oldest dog ever at 29 years and five months.
