Bobi is a Portugese farm dog who has now won a second Guinness World Record for being the world’s oldest dog. One award was for being the oldest living dog. The other was for being the oldest dog on record for ever living!
At the time he won the last award, Bobi was 30 years and 268 days old. The previous Guinness World Record title holder was Bluey who lived to be 29 years and 5 moths old. Bobi is a purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo.This breed is known to be very intelligent, strong and loyal with an average life span is 12-14 years. They are well known for their high intelligence, strength and loyalty.
Bobi was almost put down when he was born. The owner was concerned about feeding the litter of four in addition to the many other animals on the farm. However, Bobi was saved when he wandered off from the litter. He remained hidden by his owner’s sons until his eyes opened. It is much harder to put a puppy down when he looks up at you with precious puppy eyes!
