Pebbles, the adorable little Toy Fox Terrier, was only five months away from turning 23 when she died at home with her loving owners by her side.
Pebbles almost missed out on being crowned the world's oldest dog after the title was originally awarded to a Chihuahua called TobyKeith by the Guinness World Records. However, when TobyKeith's crowning made headlines, Bobby and Julie realised that their dog was, in fact, older!
When the couple adopted Pebbles, they had been looking for a larger dog breed. But as soon as they spotted the little Toy Fox Terrier, it was love at first sight. The dog went on to have an incredible 32 puppies across three litters with her mate Rocky, who died at 16 in 2017.
Little dog, big personality
While it's believed that Pebbles died from natural causes, Julie and Bobby describe her as always being an active dog with a passion for country music and trying new foods. She also loved nothing more than being pampered and being the centre of attention. Pebbles had her own personality and was a "once-in-a-lifetime companion".
Rest in peace, Pebbles.
