A 30-year-old dog living in Portugal has broken two dog records.

The dog, called Bobi, is a purebred Rafeiro do Alentejo, a breed that normally lives to between 12 and 14 years old.

Bobi has broken the record of the world’s oldest dog and also the record for the oldest dog that has ever lived!

The previous all-time record holder was a dog called Bluey in Australia, who died in 1939 at the age of 29.

This has been validated by the Portuguese government’s pet database, which is managed by the National Union of Veterinarians, according to Guinness World Records.

Bobi has lived his whole life with the Costa family in the village of Conqueiros, near Portugal’s west coast, after being born with three siblings.

Bobi is said to being doing well for his age, which was confirmed as accurate by the Portuguese government’s pet database.
