If you were to hazard a guess at the age of the world’s oldest dog, it is likely you might guess at early 20’s and indeed, until recently it was thought that the world’s oldest dog at the moment was a 21 year old daschund-cross living in New York but that title has been challenged by the owner of Max, a terrier-cross who celebrates his 26th birthday today.
Max, pictured here courtesy of the Metro, is 182 in dog years and lives with his owner, Janelle Derouen in New Iberia in Louisiana. Ms Derouen said:
“I never spoiled Max. We don’t give him food from our table and he doesn’t have any fancy toys, just a bit of rope and a regular squeaky ball.”
She thinks Max has lived this long because he is very laidback. Max is now awaiting the Guinness Book of Records to confirm his title.
