A rescue dog from Greenacres, Florida, is now in the Guinness Book of World Records. TobyKeith, a 21-year-old Chihuahua, now has the title of ‘oldest living dog in the world’. His owner, Gisela Shore, adopted him when he was a puppy.

“When I first adopted Toby he was three pounds, just this tiny little thing so I thought how funny, I should name him after this (6 feet and 5 inches) country singer that I love,” Shore said. Toby, now seven pounds, sleeps most of the day – but when he’s awake he is still active. Toby (the dog) starts each day with a piece of turkey and his heart medicine. And he loves vegetables, including sweet potatoes, green beans and carrots. So, Toby Keith is a HEALTHY and happy dog!!!
