After celebrating her birthday, a dog broke the record for the oldest Golden Retriever.
Celebrating his incredible 20th birthday, the loving senior dog recently broke the world record for oldest golden retriever.
If you’re not impressed, consider that this breed has a lifespan of 10 to 12 years (the sad fact about dogs is that their lifespan is significantly shorter than that of humans).
As a result, August, or Augie, simply lived through the typical lifespan of his species.
In addition, it should be noted that Augie’s life was not the happiest and most peaceful. In fact, she had a terrible childhood until the age of fourteen.
This adorable girl was moved to a new home twice and spent a lot of time at the orphanage before she found her final home.
August was born on April 24, 2000.
Even though her birthday was in late April, the news went viral on Saturday when Tennessee’s Goldheart Golden Retrievers Rescue, which was the first to help the pup find a permanent home, shared the wonderful news on Facebook.
In a Facebook post, the rescuer said, “At 20, her lifespan is double that of golden retrievers and she’s still alive”.
“She lived this long partly because of her wonderful genetics, but her owner, Jennifer, did a wonderful job of taking care of her and making sure they had a good relationship with Augie the vet”.
Happy birthday, Augie, and many more, because there is nothing better than seeing an older dog celebrate his birthday beyond all expectations. After its 15th birthday, this golden retriever went viral.
