Britain’s Oldest Dog Still Going Strong At 103 Years Old !!!

Meet Queenie, thought to be Britain's oldest dog at the grand adulthood of 21 - or 103 in dog years.

Former stray Queenie lives together with her owner Bridget Pike and her two furry pals Bonnie, 10, and 12-year-old Bo.

Despite being in her twilight years, cute Queenie still enjoys having a mooch round her garden, getting to the woods for walk and tucking into chicken.

Bridget said: "Queenie is one tough cookie. Despite the very fact she can't frolic like she wont to , she likes to be out and about within the fresh air.
"I got her a doggy pushchair that I can put her in when she's had enough of walking but still wants to be outdoors.

"She's almost completely blind but there's nothing wrong together with her sense of smell.

"She knows if i have never topped her petfood with cooked chicken and stands there looking up at me until I add it to her food!"

Bridget met Queenie in her role as an assistant manager at Dogs Trust rehoming centre in Salisbury and says she quickly fell crazy with the elderly pooch. To follow the story, click on "Next"....

Although she wasn't ready to take the veteran pooch home initially , a change in circumstances meant that in 2018 she officially became Queenie's owner.

But it wasn't all clear sailing , with the shy dog hiding within the dining room for 2 weeks after being adopted.

Slowly but surely, Queenie came out of her shell and commenced to explore the remainder of the house and now she has full run of the gaff.

Bridget says Queenie is an 'amazing dog' who enjoys her food, getting an early night and therefore the occasional 'mad five minutes'. What a touch cutie, eh?

Bridget hopes to encourage others to not overlook older dogs in rescue centres who still have tons of affection to offer and wish a second chance.
She added: "I feel so privileged to possess been ready to offer Queenie a cheerful range in her later life - I just wish I could have done it sooner.

"She does have some anxieties and worries but she's actually the simplest dog I even have ever owned! She brings such a lot joy to my life, i could not imagine my life without her.

"She has such a lot character and it just goes to point out that you simply shouldn't overlook older dogs, there's often still many life and love left in them!"
