Paco Sosa, New York's Oldest Dog, Celebrates His 20th Birthday

A new pooch has been crowned New York's oldest dog!

Paco Sosa, a brown-haired dachshund living in New York City, celebrated his 20th birthday on September 5. With the passing of Chanel, a 21-year-old dachshund-mix living in Port Jefferson Station, New York -- known as the World's Oldest Dog -- last month, Paco now takes NYC's crown for most elderly canine.

Paco lives in Manhattan with his owner and human companion Bernadine Santistevan, a filmmaker and venture capitalist. Originally from New Mexico, Santistevan has had Paco since she first spotted him as an eight-month old pup looking scared and lonely in an Albuquerque pet store.
