Last week it was reported that the world’s oldest (documented) dog died at the age of 26. Pusuke was a mixed breed dog that lived in Japan. His owner said he was eating well and active until last Monday when Pusuke became lethargic and had trouble breathing. Pusuke later passed peacefully just moments after his owner returned from a walk.
The oldest known dog (according to Guiness) was an Australian Shepherd named Bluey who lived to the ripe old age of 29 years 5 months before being euthanized in November 1939.
