What is the typical life span of a Pit Bull?

I have a Blue Nose Pit, and he's four or five years old. I'm just wondering if he'll make it to see me off to college....

About 10-12 years on average. It depends a lot on how their treated. Mine are given GOOD food, live inside the house and are exercised daily (running) and my female lived to 15. The guy in the picture is about 2 and healthy as a horse!!!!

He's such a sweet baby!!!!! My daughter said he looks like a vampire in this picture.

Hey Guss how's it going with the insulin? Any better trying my suggestions? If not I'll hit up one of my docs and see if there's something else I'm not aware of.

About 12 years. They are prone to congenital heart issues which can effect that though. Most heart issues, if you know about them early enough, you can manage them.

12-14 years is a good long life for a pitbull... PITBULLS ARE THE BEST COMPANIONS/PROTECTORS EVER!!!! AMAZING ANIMALS!!! All you gotta do is treat them with love....and unstigmatize the idiotic sheeple prone to mass media manipulation.

My big guy is 4.5 years. He's an apartment dog and I live alone and work so he stays in quite a bit, but during the Fall, we hit the park everyday; he can't handle GA's humidity in the summer and neither can I... He's 96 lbs too!!! about 30lbs over average but has the gator head and barrel chest and immeasurable loyalty

I agree. My Pit Bull has been through a lot, but he's still a fighter when it comes to getting sick like a swollen paw from a thorn, or getting overheated when I'm away. (I live in California and the summers in central California can get pretty vicious) He loves me and my family dearly, and even though my yappy Chihuahua constantly snaps at him, he keeps his cool and carries on. I love him more than any dog I've ever had, whether it be his breed, or his infinity love.

They really are amazing, especially when you own one that you've raised... They are almost addicted to compassion and affection.... they always wanna lay there head on your feet when your sitting in a chair, and well you know all the other awesome things they do that make em incredible pets
