It depends very much on the breed of dog. larger dogs tend to have shorter lives than smaller ones. The average life span of a dog is about 10-13 years for a average

I'm good Cj! Yeah I know. I haven't been on as much of late.....I have been having issues with my Mother that I take care of with her Alzheimer's, and it has been taking much more of my time. It get's rough at times, and I have to continually remind myself that I always promised I would never put her in a home, and I won't. My sleep cycle (all of us) is so messed up that none of us have had more than 3 hours a night......Thanks for asking! How are you?

If they don't get run over or stolen then you have a good chance of at least a 10 year or so life span. Some breeds are known for problems with their health. Healthy dogs will live a longer happier life so if you love your pooch treat them well, get vet checks regulary. Worm & flea them but most of all for a long happy life love them dearly. They can help you live a longer healthier life too. It goes both ways.
