The female Fox Terrier Pebbles has become the new holder of the title of the world’s oldest dog. At the end of March this year, he celebrated his 22nd birthday and led after a chihuahua named TobyKeith. After turning the year of a dog into a human, the record holder will turn an incredible 154 years old.
Pebbles was born on March 28, 2000 and has lived with Bobby and Julia Gregory in the state of South Carolina since then. It weighs 1.8 kilograms and, according to its owner, enjoys excellent health. Server wrote about it Bible.
The couple initially considered buying a dog much larger than the pygmy Toy Fox Terrier. But when Bobby first saw the bitch, he immediately fell in love with her. Gregory only realized they had the oldest pet of their kind when they read about the current record holder this spring.
A chihuahua title named TobyKeith was recently awarded at the age of 21 years and 66 days. “Bobby was sitting on the couch in front of the TV when his friends and relatives started sending us the news that he was only 21 according to the Guinness Book of World Records. When I heard that, I immediately reported Pebbles,” Julie said.
A jury from the World Records Association reviewed his application and, as nothing had hindered the award, prevented it at the end of May. TobyKeith enjoyed his record for just two months, and Gregories now hopes the Pebbles will stay in the championship longer.
