Bobi, the Portuguese guard dog, is the world’s oldest dog. His face is so kissable, and he is such a cutie. He still has a puppy dog face. Bobi’s human dad, Costa, broke an almost century-old world record when his Bobi turned 30. Costa has had the pup since he was a little boy at eight years old. Bobi looks fantastic for being a 30-year-old pup.
Such a hideous, gruesome truth that his family was so poor that his father used to bury newborn pups instead of keeping them. This miracle pup was never supposed to live past the age of his birth, made it to 30, and is now thriving with his loving dad, Costa.
Seeing this pooch living a great quality of life, even in his golden years, is beautiful. It shows you that with enough love and care, you can help keep your best friend alive and happy for a long time. The Guinness World Records called Bobi’s story “miraculous.” No one has ever seen a dog with such a remarkable story of survival and success.
Even more impressive is that Bobi’s breed typically has a life expectancy of about 12 to 14 years. It is incredible to see this dog is still young at heart. He is outliving a cattle dog, from Australia, named Bluey, who died at age 29 in 1939.
Like any dog parent, Costa wants Bobi to live furever, which shows how well he takes care of his sweet friend. Watch this video for a story that will speak to your soul and tug at your heartstrings.
