Breed Longevity

Longevity of this breed should exceed 10 years and probably will average around 14 years,  with many living until the late teens. I recently lost a beautiful girl from our first show litter, who was 18 1/2 years old. She had all her teeth and was still in beautiful coat thanks to her doting owner. So think of this when planning your breed choice. They will be with you for a long time.
