Dog Sets Record For Longest Tongue

A St. Bernard from South Dakota has set a world record for having the longest tongue for a dog. According to The Guinness World Records, Mochi's tongue measures 7.31 inches. Mochi's owner says her rescue dog is happy, but has some breathing problems because of her long tongue. Mochi also slobbers more than usual when she's nervous.

More than 53,000 pets were adopted through the 2016 Clear the Shelters campaign, a nationwide push to place deserving animals in forever homes. Join the conversation on social media using #ClearTheShelters.
