Apparently, he was eating regularly and active up until the day before he passed. He began to have difficulty breathing and suddently wasn’t interested in his food. Pusuke then passed peacefully shortly after his owner arrived home. His owner believes that Pusuke waited for his return.
Born in April of 1985, Pusuke was recognized last December as the world’s oldest-living dog by Guinness.
The oldest-known dog on record, according to Guinness, was an Australian cattle dog named Bluey, who lived to the ripe old age of 29 years and five months before it was put down in November 1939.
