It’s official. Let it be known that Golden Retriever, “August”, is the oldest known, oldest living Golden Retriever! She turned 20 years old on April 24, 2020. Augie, as she is affectionately called, lives in Oakland, Tennessee with Jennifer and Steve who gave her a furever home at age 14.
The beautiful, gray-faced senior was born in 2000, and she was rehomed twice before joining her current family. Augie loves to take RV trips, play fetch in the pool, and hang out with canine and feline siblings.
Despite her advanced age, Augie is in remarkably good health! Read more about Augie here.
