Pebbles, the world’s oldest dog, died five months before his 23rd birthday.

The death of the Toy Fox Terrier, announced by Guinness World Records, is assumed to have occurred naturally.

After spending her final moments with her owners Bobby and Julie Gregory, the lovable dog died at her South Carolina home.

Pebbles was born on March 28, 2000, and when TobyKeith, a chihuahua, was proclaimed the world’s oldest dog, Pebbles’ owners realised their dog had 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 said in a statement from Guinness World Records.

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

Pebbles, a Toy Fox Terrier, gave birth to 32 puppies over the course of three litters with her canine lover, Rocky, who passed away in 2017 at the age of 16.

Pebbles was an active dog that spent much of her life in Taylors, South Carolina. Julie and Bobby issued a statement about Pebbles’ death.

She liked listening to country music and receiving affection. “She loved trying new foods, being spoiled, and, most importantly, feeling loved,” the couple added. “Pebbles was more than just a dog; she had her own personality and way of being.” She was a one-of-a-kind companion, and having her as a Pet and family member was a privilege.

Many of the deceased dog’s admirers expressed their heartfelt condolences on Twitter, writing, “RIP Pebbles.”
