The tallest dog in history just expanded his legend after turning a whopping 31 years old. It is called by the Portuguese Vinco Bobi, who last February held the Guinness record for the dog that is known throughout history, according to the report of La Voz de Galicia.
Bob’s hit note corresponded to an Australian shepherd dog who had lived 30 years and 267 days before dying in 1929. In this sense, Bobi’s story takes us to the Portuguese town of Leiria, in the center of the neighboring country. It was registered there in the veterinary center in 1992 when its owner Leonel Costa was 8 years old.
The connection between the owner and this animal was born with very typical components. All her litter was sacrificed with the offspring, except the little Bob, whom Costa hid, saving him from cruel fate.
What is the secret of longevity?
Also, the aforementioned information contains an elaborate explanation from his owner and best friend as to why he believes this dog has lived so long. Focus on key factors such as diet, a healthy and social lifestyle, and giving him freedom and lots of love and pampering.
His master described the environment in which this old dog was raised, also describing the atmosphere as relaxed and calm. And a very curious detail that scares clichés. This dog is sociable not only with others of its kind, but also with other animals, such as the four cats with which it lives.
When he is given his freedom, it means that Bobi has never been tied down and has never been in bondage. Long walks have no other ties than the beautiful nature of the Portuguese Alentejo.
