World record beat Saturday in Jonesboro

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT)- A local high school student set a world record Saturday for the most dog washes in just eight hours.

Christian Canizales was determined to set a Guinness World Record by putting his hands to work. He had to wash more than 80 dogs in order to beat the record. His goal was 100.

All donations went to the Villalobos Pit Bull rescue.

The event was at Hollywood Feed in Jonesboro where manager Ruth Meador says Christian has put in a lot of work to make it a success. "We are really excited and I know Jonesboro can beat this record," Meador said.

Canizales beat the record by 35, washing more than 115 dogs in eight hours.
