Chihuahua mix named Spike oldest living dog according to Guinness World Records

Camden, Ohio – According to Guinness World Records, a 12.9-pound Chihuahua mix is ​​officially the oldest living dog.

Spike, from Camden, Ohio, was certified by GWR in December as having been born at least 23 years ago, making him the oldest living dog, GWR says.

Rita Kimball, who says she named Spike after a cartoon dog known for its size and aggressive nature, found the dog in a grocery store parking lot. That was 14 years ago.

He was shaved on the back, had bloodstains from a chain or rope around his neck and looked pretty rough,” Kimball told GWR.

“The clerk at the grocery store told us he had been there for three days and they were feeding him leftovers.”

Not knowing whose Spike belonged, Kimball decided to take the pup home to join the rest of the herd on their small farm.

“As we left the store and entered the parking lot, he followed us,” Kimball recalls.

How did Spike officially earn the title of Oldest Dog?

Kimball says she was watching a late-night talk show when she heard the news that the former eldest dog, Pebbles, had died in October at the age of 22.

She contacted GWR about Spike.

“Most of our family members knew Spike was old but didn’t know he had a chance to be the oldest in the world,” Kimball said.

What does the dog owner advise to help his darling to an old age? She recommends a healthy diet, space, daily exercise, and unlimited love and attention.
