This is a list of the oldest dogs in the world. All are (or were) 20 years of age or older. Aging in dogs depends on breed and size.

Oldest dogs by age[edit]

The oldest verified dog (and several unverified) is linked to the Australian Cattle Dog. This has prompted a study of the longevity of the Australian Cattle Dog to examine if the breed might have exceptional longevity. The 100-dog survey yielded a mean longevity of 13.41 years with a standard deviation of 2.36 years.[1] The study concluded that while Australian Cattle Dogs are a healthy breed and do live on average almost a year longer than most dogs of other breeds in the same weight class, record ages such as Bluey's ("Verified") or Chilla's ("Unverified")[2] should be regarded as uncharacteristic exceptions rather than as indicators of common exceptional longevity for the entire breed.
