Bully was adopted by a senior dog rescue when he was 21 years old, and he’s still going strong at the age that few dogs reach.
This sweet old Chihuahua is celebrating his birthday today.
Unfortunately, dogs do not live as long as humans, but some are blessed with truly long lives. When a dog reaches his senior years, each birthday is a significant event to commemorate.
Like one candy rescue dog, who recently turned 23 — a ripe old age in canine years — and was given a very different birthday party to commemorate the occasion.
Bully, a Chihuahua, has lived a long and happy life, but when he was 21, he experienced a major life change: his elderly owner could no longer care for him, and he was taken in by the senior canine rescue The Mr. Mo Project, according to The Dodo.
At such an old age, it can be difficult for a dog to discover himself in a new environment. Bully, also known as Bobo, is a “super senior” in canine years, having outlived the Chihuahua lifespan.
Bully is now the rescue’s oldest resident, so they made sure to celebrate in style when he turned twenty-three.
Chris Hughes and his wife Mariesa started the Mr. Mo Project, and senior puppies have a special place in their hearts. They were inspired to start the rescue after caring for Moses, a 12-year-old dog who had been surrendered because he was “too old.”
The couple reportedly spent more than $55,000 converting their home into a senior dog sanctuary, all to ensure that these often-overlooked senior pets have a safe, loving environment to spend their golden years.
“Outside of The Mr. Mo Project, we each work full-time jobs,” Chris told Insider. “This isn’t a job anymore; it’s a labor of love.” It’s where we spend all of our money.”
Bully, the oldest dog in the rescue, is given a special birthday celebration for his twenty-third birthday — happy birthday, Bully!
