Pusuke (April 1, 1985 – December 5, 2011), a Shiba Inu breed dog from Japan, was thought to be the world's oldest dog from December 2010 until his death in December 2011, according to the Guinness World Records. As of 2011, he was the tenth oldest dog ever recorded. However, a dog from the United States, Max, was later determined to be older.
According to his owner, Pusuke had been active, healthy and fit up until the day he died, when he suddenly lost his appetite and experienced difficulty breathing. He died a few hours later, at the age of 26 years.
