The oldest dog in history is still alive today and will turn 30 this year!
A terrier-cross in Louisiana called Max holds the record for being the world's oldest known living dog. Born in August 1983, Max has been a part of Janelle Derouen's family ever since.
Max has also enjoyed fine health into his older years. As of a few years ago, he only had mild arthritis and some cataracts. The owner says that he never spoiled the dog, and never even fed him any food from their table.
Using the rule of thumb for translating dog years into human years; in August, he will have lived for 210 human years. Here's to hoping he gets to live many more years.
