UK woman shows off ‘oldest’ dog in the world

A lady from UK lady has claimed that her 25-year-old dog is the oldest in the world.

Glenice Bagley, 69, said Sheba, sheepdog-Alsatian cross, is way ahead of the current Guinness world record holder, an Italian mongrel aged just 23, and she’s all set to send an application for her dog to the Guinness.

“I’m proud of her now. If it turns out she’s the oldest dog in the world then I’ll be even more proud of her. She doesn’t seem to slow down. She’s lovable, she never growls. She’ll lick you to death,” the Sun quoted her as saying.

Glenice, of Widnes, Cheshire, told how she rescued Sheba when she was just three in 1987 after the animal had been badly neglected following a car crash.

“I got Sheba through my ex daughter-in-law from some people she knew who hadn’t been looking after her. They’d had her since she was a pup and she was three at the time,” the proud owner added.

Glenive further explained, “I’m always one for a sob story, so I took her in. Now she’s 25 and she thinks she’s still five. She jumps on the roof of the greenhouse when she sees a cat on the fence. It’s a bit of a dangerous trick for an old dog.”

Guinness World Records said the oldest living dog they know of is Piccolo, a Tricolour Mongrel in Farra d’Alpago, Italy, born on 1 October 1987.

“A lot of people do say they’ve got the oldest dog or parrot but have no evidence. As part of the verification process we would require a vet’s statement and we try to piece the history of the owner and their dog – including photos of them down the years,” said, a spokesman for Guinness World Records.
