World’s oldest dog by Guinness Book of World Records, named Pusuke, passed away in Sakura, Japan on Monday at the age of 26-years and nine-months, according to reports by several international news sites on Tuesday, December 6, 2011.

Pusuke, a male cross breed, was recorded by the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s oldest living dog in December of 2010. The dog’s age is reportedly equivalent to 182-years-old in human years. Pusuke is owned by 42-year-old Yumiko Shinohara.

According to Shinohara‘s account, Pusuke lost his appetite and cannot breathe on Monday morning and passed away peacefully in the afternoon.

Pusuke replaced a 28-year-old Beagle named Butch as the world’s oldest living dog.
