RIP! World’s Oldest Dog Chihuahua Pebbles Dies Ages 22 As Tributes Pour In For Country Music Loving Pooch

Sadly, Pebbles, the world’s eldest dog, died five months before reaching 23.

The Toy Fox Terrier, whose demise was announced by Guinness World Records, is thought to have died naturally.

The loving dog passed away in her South Carolina home after spending her last moments with her owners Bobby and Julie Gregory.

Pebbles was born on March 28, 2000, and when the chihuahua TobyKeith was declared the oldest dog in the world, Pebbles’ owners realized their dog actually won.

“Bobby was sitting on the couch and friends and relatives started texting and calling about a story they heard about a 21-year-old dog getting the record,” Julie told Guinness World Records.

“I applied after seeing TobyKeith’s tale all over the news.”

Soon after Pebbles was first acquired, the Toy Fox Terrier gave birth to 32 puppies over the course of three distinct litters with her canine companion, Rocky, who passed away in 2017 at the age of 16.

Pebbles was a very active dog that lived the majority of her life in Taylors, South Carolina. Julie and Bobby announced Pebbles’ passing in a news release.

She enjoyed listening to country music and receiving love. She loved trying out new foods, getting spoiled, and most of all, feeling loved “said the couple. “Pebbles was not just another dog; she had her own personality and manner of being. She was a once-in-a-lifetime companion, and having her as a pet and family member was an honor.

Many of the deceased dog’s admirers sent the following message on Twitter to convey their deep sadness at her passing: “RIP Pebbles.”
