“We’re aware of the questions around Bobi’s age and are looking into them,” a Guinness World Records spokesperson told the news outlet.Bobi, a pure-bred Rafeiro – a Portuguese breed of livestock guard dogs – died on Oct 21 at the age of 31 years and 165 days. The breed has an average life expectancy of 12 to 14 years.
