30-Year-Old Dog Named Bobi Declared World’s Oldest Living Dog and Oldest Dog Ever

A dog has broken the world record for oldest living dog in history. As announced on Thursday, a 30-year-old dog by the name of Bobi from Portugal has been formally distinguished as the oldest living dog. In addition to that honor, Bobi has also been determined to be the oldest dog ever. Bobi, whose age was 30 years and 266 days as of Feb. 1, is a purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo. These animals typically live to be as old as 14 and are best known as being livestock guardian dogs. As for the secret to Bobi’s long life, his family credits it all to the “peaceful environment” he calls home in the Conqueiros region of Leiria. In May, Bobi will be celebrating his 31st birthday.
