Bobi; the oldest dog EVER in the world

“Two weeks after announcing Spike as the world’s oldest dog living, Guinness World Records have received evidence of an older dog. A much older dog. In fact, Bobi (b. 11 May 1992) is not just the oldest dog living; he’s the oldest dog ever.”

Bobi is 30 years and 266 days old as of 1 February 2023. He has lived his entire life with the Costa family in the rural village of Conqueiros, in Leiria, Portugal.

Bobi is a purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo, which is a breed of livestock guardian dog with an average life expectancy of 12-14 years.

Bobi’s age has also been verified by SIAC, a pet database authorized by the Portuguese government and managed by the SNMV (Sindicato Nacional dos Médicos Veterinários; National Union of Veterinarians).

Bobi has never been chained up nor attached to a leash, and always enjoyed free roam of the forests and farmland surrounding the house, his owner Leonel Costa said.

“Bobi is special because looking at him is like remembering the people who were part of our family and unfortunately are no longer with us, like my father, my brother, or my grandparents who have already left this world. Bobi represents those generations”, he added.
