Pebbles The World’s Oldest Dog Dies At 22-Years-Old

The world’s living oldest dog has crossed the rainbow bridge, but not before leaving behind a legacy.

Born March 28, 2000, Pebbles the four-pound Toy Fox Terrier was the oldest known living dog in the world. Earlier this year, she was officially given the title by the Guinness Book of World Records at 22 years and 59 days old.

When most of us welcome a puppy into our lives, we hope to spend some 10-15 years with them if we’re lucky. Rarely, a small breed dog might live a little older. My grandma has had a few dogs live upwards of 18 years, but that’s far from common.

Pebbles blew the statics away though when she made it to 22 years of age. Her owners, Bobby and Julie, regularly shared videos and photos of Pebbles on her own personal Instagram account, where the cuddly pooch had some 8,000 followers.

It was with heavy hearts that they announced her passing in a press release.

According to the release, Pebbles passed away from natural causes on October 3, 2022, at her home in Taylors, South Carolina. She was surrounded by family and was just five months shy of turning 23.

Her Instagram page now serves as a memorial of sorts for Pebbles’ fans and loved ones to remember her through.

Rest in peace, sweet girl!
