Tabikit was born on January 9, 2001 and lives in Florida with her owner Gisela Shore.
While volunteering at an animal shelter, his owner brought Tabikit, who was only a few months old, home.
Tabikit used to belong to an elderly couple who were called “peanut butter” but could no longer care for her.
Dogs mostly live between 10 and 13 years, but the Chihuahua breed often lives longer and has a lifespan of 12 to 18 years.
When Tabikit turned 20 last year, Gisella thought he might not be the world’s oldest dog. That’s why he contacted the Guinness Book of World Records and his record was officially confirmed.
Tabikit took a great bath in honor of this record, trimmed his nails, and drove him around as a special reward.
