Bobi – Worlds Oldest Dog

On Saturday, the world’s oldest dog, Bobi, passed away at the remarkable
age of 31. Bobi was a purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo, a Portuguese dog breed
typically known for an average life expectancy of 10 to 14 years. Bobi’s
home was on a farm in the picturesque village of Conqueiros, Portugal,
alongside his owner, Costa, and four feline companions.

Bobi was born on May 11, 1992, when Costa was just 8 years old. His diet
consisted solely of human food, which was carefully soaked in water to
eliminate any seasonings.

Bobi secured the Guinness World Record, surpassing Bluey, an Australian
cattle dog who passed away in 1939 at the age of 29. Bluey had held the
record for nearly a century. In February 2023, Bobi earned the prestigious
titles as the world’s oldest living dog and the oldest dog in history by the
Guinness World Records. His remarkable age was authenticated by SIAC, a pet
database authorized by the Portuguese government.
