Born on Jan. 9, 2001, TobyKeith was 21 years and 66 days old on March 16 when Guinness World Records (GWR) confirmed he was the oldest dog alive.

"People can't believe how good he looks for his age," the dog's owner, Gisela Shore, told GWR.

Shore adopted him from an animal shelter when he was just a few months old.

"I was a volunteer at Peggy Adams Animal Rescue and one of the employees told me about an elderly couple trying to surrender a puppy because they could not take care of him any longer," said Gisela.

"I met with the elderly couple and I was introduced to a tiny tan Chihuahua. They had named him Peanut Butter. I later changed his name to TobyKeith."

TobyKeith's day consists of a morning walk, then his favorite snack: a slice of turkey. He goes on a few more short walks and lies next to Shore while she is working.
