George, who is 14, was awarded the “The Oldest Living Rabbit” honors by Guinness after several vets confirmed his age.

The life expectancy for rabbits is 6 to 8 years, making George nearly double the average, or about 160 years old in human terms.

Joe Breton, 33, got George while at the University of Maine in 1994, four months before he met his wife, Amy.

Amy credits the rabbit with bringing her and her husband together.
