The Louisiana dog was recognized by Guinness World Records as the dog with the longest tongue in the world

Zoey, 3 years old, living in Louisiana, was recognized by Guinness World Records as the dog with the longest tongue in the world with a length of 12.7 cm.

Couple Drew and Sadie Williams of Louisiana adopted Zoey, a dog between Labrador and German Shepherd breeds, three years ago. Drew said on June 5 that last November, he and his wife sent documents about Zoey’s long tongue to the Guinness World Records Organization. By March, Zoey was recognized as the world’s longest-tongued dog alive.

Drew said that in June 2020, he and his wife saw someone on Facebook wanting to donate a dog and they adopted Zoey. The two quickly noticed how long the bitch’s tongue hung out of her mouth even though she was only 5 weeks old. As Zoey grew older and met more people, everyone who saw her said, “Wow, her tongue is really long,” Drew recalls.

He once measured Zoey’s tongue with a butter knife that was 11.43 cm long. At that time, the knife was a little longer. Finally, someone suggested to Drew that Zoey’s tongue might break the length record. He went to the Guinness website and discovered that the record for the longest living dog with the longest tongue was vacated after Mochi, a dog in South Dakota with a tongue 18.58 cm long, died.

Sadie and Drew decided to submit the application to Guinness. They took Zoey to the vet to have her tongue measured. They then sent videos, photos, and witness statements to Guinness.

In February, Guinness recognized Bisbee, a dog in Tucson, Arizona, as holding a new record with a tongue 9.49 cm long. The Williamses believe Zoey will overthrow Bisbee’s record.

After Guinness recognized Zoey’s record in March, the couple celebrated by going to the store to buy Zoey some toys. Dogs have favorite activities such as picking up balls, chasing squirrels, riding in cars, swimming and eating.

Sadie and Drew framed a Guinness certificate on the mantelpiece, next to a drawing of Zoey sticking out her tongue.

“Everyone who comes to visit is amazed,” Drew said. “That certification always becomes a topic of conversation. Not everyone gets to see that kind of certification in person. It’s interesting.”
