A chihuahua in Florida recently set the record for oldest living dog at 21 years old! The dog named TobyKeith was adopted by his owner Gisela Shore. It just so happened that Shore was volunteering at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue when an elderly couple had contacted the nonprofit in West Palm Beach, Florida, to surrender the Chihuahua.

“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,” said Gisela.

Guinness World Records later confirmed the record and posted about the chihuahua on their Instagram.

“People can’t believe how good he looks for his age,” Shore said.

Shore said that TobyKeith has been a “rock” for her for more than two decades and has seen her through good and bad times, including divorce and a happy new marriage.

On TobyKeith’s special day, he celebrated with a pampering session, which included a bubble bath, getting his nails trimmed, and ended the day with one of his favorites, a ride in the car.

Apart from his best human friend Gisela, TobyKieth loves to spend time with his animal siblings, Coco (a 28-year-old Umbrella Cockatoo) and Coqui (a 32-year-old African Grey).
