A pet owner with two senior dogs has claimed that the secret to their long lives lies in their diet.
In a TikTok video, Jennifer Gallagher explained that her two pups live on a diet of boiled green beans, bison, and sweet potatoes. Maltipoo Maci, who will turn 17 in February, and beagle Rusty, who will turn 16 in November, both get their meals freshly prepared every day by their paw-rents using only natural ingredients.
It’s this diet, combined with long morning walks, that their owner attributes to their long lives and robust health.
“Most people are shocked when I tell them that Maci is going to be 17 in a month,” said the pups’ owner in the now viral TikTok video, which can be seen here.
The average life expectancy for both maltipoos and beagles is between 12 and 15 years, according to the American Kennel Club.

Vice president of veterinary medicine at Petfolk Dr. Jessica Taylor told Newsweek, “Foods that are safe for most pets include unsalted green beans, plain cooked sweet potatoes, carrots, small pieces of apple or melon, and berries like blueberries. Adding other food groups like meat is not usually necessary, and can add a significant amount of calories.”
Perhaps aware of this, Gallagher had shared that she chooses to boil her lean meat of choice in order to reduce the dogs’ calorie intake.
