The owners of a 20-year-old golden retriever named Augie believe she’s the oldest dog of her breed.

Jennifer and Steve Hetterscheidt celebrated Augie’s birthday on April 24 at home in Oakland, TN, CNN reported.

The Hetterscheidts adopted Augie when the dog was 14.

The GoldHeart Golden Retrievers Rescue in Maryland wrote on Facebook that the dog is the “oldest known, oldest living” golden retriever.

“There’s nothing to not love about her,” said Jennifer Hetterscheidt. “She’s happy doing something and happy doing nothing.”
