Many dogs live into their teens and some make it to their early 20s, but Pusuke, a shiba mix breed living in Japan is now holding the record for the oldest living dog in the world according to the Guiness World Records. Pusuke will be 27 this year in December and has vet records that date back to 1985 when he received his first vaccines as a puppy.

His owner says his longevity is attributed to the care she gives him and nutrition. She’s had him since she was 16 years old and has loved him, cared for him, and says she will continue to do so. She hopes he lives to be 30.

He gets a multivitamin everyday and still takes on the role of guard dog. He almost lost his life a few years ago when he was hit by a car but emergency surgery saved him. Pusuke is about 2 feet tall and has maintained a healthy weight of about 28 lbs. In dog years he’s almost 185 years old!

To date, there’s a dog that lived to be 29 years old and was born in 1910. Pusuke, however, holds the record at the moment for the oldest living dog.
