Aww! World’s Oldest Dog Uncle Chichi Dies at 25 [VIDEO]

Uncle Chichi, who was adopted as a rescue dog in Charleston, SC back in 1988, has just died in New York City after a bout with cancer.

His long time owners, Frank Pavich and Janet Puhalovic, believe Chichi was around one or two when they picked up him up at the John Ancrum Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. But since no records of his birth exist, they can’t be sure exactly how old he is, and Chichi was never officially recognized as the world oldest dog, a position he likely inherited in December of 2011 when Pusuke, a 26-year-old Shiba mix from Japan, passed away.

Besides making the move from South Carolina to New York, Uncle Chichi had been all over the world during his long life, visiting Italy, Slovenia, Switzerland, Germany, Crotia and France with his owners.

He was described a good dog, although somewhat of a picky eater, a vice he was certainly entitled to after living between 168 and 175 people years. Watch a video of Uncle Chichi from 2010 below. RIP, good boy.
