The oldest Dog is Put To Sleep by Guinness World Records

World’s Oldest Dog,Otto,a 20 year and 11 month old Dachshund cross Terrier has sadly been put to sleep since suffering from stomach cancer. The Shrewsbury dog was recently recognised as the oldest living dog by Guinness World Records.

He was very lively for his age and loved playing with local children. His owners Lynn and Peter Jones called him a “lovable, affectionate rogue”.

Speaking of his illness: “We found out yesterday he had a very large tumour in his stomach and last night I felt he was trying to tell us something.

“He couldn’t sit or lie down comfortably and he was trying to tell us that he’d had enough, so we made the decision to end his suffering and took him to the vet this morning,”
