On August 10, The Daily Telegraph printed an article about the dog Max who lives in Louisiana.
The owners have a certificate based on which you can prove Max’s age, namely 26 years old. Now they want Max to get to the Guinness Book of Records.
For now officially in the Guinness Book of Records was a bitch Chanel who is 21 years old. Although Chanel is younger than Max, she hardly sees, hears or walks. Max, however, is in good shape, he has only a slight cataract and arthritis.
Janelle Derouen told a journalist that she and her husband bought Max from a local farmer in 1983. They chose this puppy because of its brown color, which distinguished him from his brothers and sisters.
The owner says that she never fed her dog with food from the table, he had his own food that he ate during his life.
26 years old dog – 182 years old man
According to the Independent world’s oldest dog’ Maggie the Kelpie died aged 30 in Australia in 2016.
Maggie may have been the oldest living dog in the world. According to its owner, Brian McLaren, she was over 30 years old, which is over 200 in terms of human years.
She was 30 years old, she kept up well until last week – said farmer Brian McLaren from Woolsthorpe in the Australian state of Victoria.
The owner of the dog emphasized that the animal’s condition has suddenly worsened. According to McLaren, Maggie was 30 years old, which would give her over 200 human years. It would mean that it was the oldest dog in the world.
Unfortunately, McLaren does not have the original documents confirming the age of the dog, so it can not be accurately verified whether Maggie was really 30 years old.
