World's Oldest Dog - Max the Mixed Terrier

Max - World's Oldest Dog  -  Guinness  Book of World Records

A mixed terrier named Max is the oldest dog in the world. Max lives in New Iberia, which is near Lafayette. This cute Terrier mix recently passed away just prior to his 30th birthday.  Max was a beagle, dachshund and terrier mix who lived 29 years and 282 days. His owner, Janelle Derouen, adopted him from a Louisiana sugar cane farmer in 1983.


On May 15, 2013, the Guinness World Records organization approved a claim made by Janelle DeRouen for Max to be recognized as the World's Oldest Dog.  However, just three days later, on May the 18th, Max died of a grand mal seizure.  If Max had lived to the following August, he would have been the first known dog to reach 30 years of age.
