There’s a new record holder for the oldest chihuahua in the world, and his name is TobyKeith.
According to “Guinness“, Toby set the record on March 16th when he turned 21 years, and 66 days.
Gisela Shore of Greenacres said she adopted TobyKeith from a shelter when he was only a few months old.
“I was a volunteer at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue and one of the employees told me about an elderly couple trying to surrender a puppy because they could not take care of him any longer,” Shore told Guinness World Records.
“I met with the elderly couple and I was introduced to a tiny tan chihuahua. They had named him Peanut Butter. I later changed his name to TobyKeith,” she said.
Shore said she started to suspect TobyKeith might be the oldest dog in the world when he turned 20.
Chihuahuas typically live to be 12-18 years old.
