What is the Oldest German Shepherd on Record?

The oldest dog in history was a female german shepherd named Max, who died in 1939 at about 29 years and five months old.

As of 2018, the oldest living dog is a beagle named Pusuke, born on January 30January 30, 2000, and lives in Japan.

In 2015, Gunther III from Germany was declared as the world’s “oldest” old dog by Guinness World Records at age 26 years and 328 days. People say that this is true, but another person says it is not valid.

In 2016 Väino Friman’s Great Dane died after having lived for almost nine decades – nearly 100 in human equivalent terms – making him officially one of the longest-lived dogs ever recorded.

The first recorded GSD was born in 1899, but there are no records of them.

This breed of dog is one of the most popular ones globally, but it can also be challenging to find information on specific dogs within this breed.

The oldest German shepherd on record was an unnamed female that lived for 29 years and five months. This dog was born sometime around 1899 and died in 1939 (the exact date is unknown).

Unfortunately, there are no records during those days about what happened to any other puppies she may have had or if these were the first recorded GSDs ever born. However, because she has been listed as “Max” by Guinness World Records at the time of death, we know her name probably came from a line of famous police K-nine’s called Max who worked for the Munich Police department.

Today, many living GSDs have received recognition for their age. Some dogs live for a long time. For example, “Bluey” lived in Australia until he died at the age of 29. Another dog, Queenie, who lived in Brazil, was born between 1920-1935, but it is not clear how old she was when she died because her owner never registered her birth or death. There’s also Maxine (Canada), Marna (Sweden), Twixy (UK), George(USA), and last but not least, Pusuke (Japan), who died at 26 years and nine months.

In 1938 a female GSD named Tiberius became the oldest living dog at age 22.

A few years later, Max arrived at the home of her owner, Henry Dukes. She was already an adult when she made this journey from Czechoslovakia to England in 1934. In 1938 a female GSD named Tiberius became the oldest living dog at age 22.

A year later, another german shepherd took over that title and held it for many years until being dethroned by a terrier mix Ch. Chanel No More Mr. Nice Guy lived 29 ½ years old before dying on August 26August 26, 2003!

The current record holder for the oldest GSD is Max, who died in 2005 at age 27 and 5 months old.

  1. The second oldest is Creme Puff, who lived to be 38 years old.
  2. The third oldest is Bluey, who lived to be 29 years and five months old.
  3. The fourth oldest dog on record was Taffy. Taffy died at age 28 in 1939.

Granpa Rex, a terrier mix that belonged to the president of Indiana Wesleyan University, holds the world’s fifth-oldest title with his death in 2009 at 27 years and seven days old. The sixth-place goes to Chanel, born on May 21May 21, 1971, and died December 22December 22, 1995 (aged 24). She was owned by Carole Ann Ford from Bromley Kent UK.

His owner, David Nasser, credits his longevity to raw food and lots of exercises.

Väino Friman’s Great Dane, Pluto, was born in Finland around the year 1986. He died at age 27 and six months old after an illness that he had battled for several weeks before passing away on October 30October 30, 2013.

His owner, David Nasser, credits his longevity to raw food and lots of exercises.

Since Max died in 2006, no other GSD has reached that level of seniority, but there are still three living dogs whose ages have been recorded who are either tied or close behind her record-breaking title: Twixy (27), Bluey(28), George (29). These animals were born in the same year as Max herself: 1939.

At 26 years old, he was still able to walk upstairs and swim without any issues.

George was born on January 31January 31, 1986.

His owner, David Nasser, credits his longevity to raw food and lots of exercises. At 26 years old, he was still able to walk upstairs and swim without any issues. He died in 2015 after a surgery went wrong. This happened when he tried to take one of his legs off because arthritis had taken over both of them. George is the current record holder for the oldest living GSD at age 29! Yusuke passed away on May 21May 21, 2016. She is the seventh-oldest person in the world, with an estimated birth date of 1920 -1935. But it is unclear when she actually passed away because her owner never registered her birth or death.
