Toby Keith, a chihuahua, has just been named the oldest living dog.
The 7-pound dog is 21 years old and 99 days old.
For a chihuahua, that’s a rare feat as the typical lifespan of an average chihuahua is between 12 and 18 years.
And although Toby Keith has a heart condition, it doesn’t cause him too much trouble.
Its owner, Gisela Shore, says it’s always been active and doesn’t like sweets, but has something to eat for breakfast every day.
“First thing in the morning, when we wake up at 6:30, I give him a slice of turkey. It’s his favorite food,” says Shore.
The dog was born on January 9, 2001.
Toby Keith was the last of the litter to be left in a cardboard box when Shore found it.
Country music fans named this dog after one of her favorite singers, who happened to be on tour near her home in Florida at the time.
When his record was confirmed, family and friends were overjoyed. To celebrate, Toby Keith took a shower, trimmed his nails and drove a car.
