Pusuke, the world's oldest living dog, died on Monday aged 26 years and nine months. Global Animal reported that in dog years Pusuke was 117. The male crossbreed died peacefully at his home in Sakura, Japan, ABC News reported. According to his owner Yumiko Shinohara, Pusuke was healthy and active until his death.
On Monday Pusuke became breathless and lost his appetite, dying peacefully as Shinohara returned home from a walk. She said "I think (Pusuke) waited for me to come home.” Pusuke entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the world's oldest living dog, in 2010.
