Even though the dog had set the record in 2020, he was officially featured only in the 2022 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records. The golden retriever has been featured in the Guinness Book of World Record’s 2022 version, which includes a photo of him smiling with his mouth filled with six tennis balls.
”BIG NEWS! I can officially say that I am in the @guinnessworldrecords book for 2022! This of course wasn’t easy, and certainly felt like forever and a day to accomplish! Thank you to all my friends and fans who have been following my tennis ball journey since the beginning—was it worth the wait?😇 I haven’t been active as much on social media lately, but don’t fret, I’m still carrying tennis balls as you can see!,” Finley and his owner, Erin Molloy, shared on his Instagram page @finnyboymolloy.

Back in 2017, Finley’s owner, Erin Molloy, noticed that Finley had a rather unique talent for toting tennis balls in his mouth.
“My dad would throw him a tennis ball, he’d catch it, drop it, then wait for my dad to throw another. Rather than bringing just one ball back to my dad, he brought back all six! He’s been a ball hoarder for quite some time now!” Molloy explains.
The previous record was held by a Golden Retriever named Augie who managed to hold an impressive five balls back in 2003.
