Maggie May Be The Oldest Dog To Ever Live, Dying At Age 30

Australia lost a very beloved, very old soul today. Maggie, the Australian Kelpie, passed away after having lived for 30 years, according to owner Brian McLaren. She spent her life with him, roaming around their spacious dairy farm.

While most dogs live between 11-15 years of age (and for some lucky ones, a few years more), this amazing pup more than doubled the average life expectancy.

Unfortunately, McLaren lost documentation that specified Maggie’s birth date, so the official world record for the oldest living dog still belongs to Bluey, an Australian Cattle Dog that lived to the ripe old age of 29 years and 5 months, back in 1939.
