Average dog life mestizo or purebred, more than anything else looking at the size because this is the characteristic that seems most linked to life expectancy, obviously always excluding exceptions or dogs suffering from hereditary diseases. When we talk about the average life of the dogs, without getting sad, we realize that it is much more limited than that of a man.
Average life span of the mixed breed dog
We can estimate that the average dog life of a mixed breed dog is about 13.2 years old but this figure is very insignificant considering the great variety of sizes, types and mix of breed that the category includes. When you think about the average dog life it comes automatically, too to those who do not "anthropomorphize" it, to compare his growth phases with those of man, maybe even just to joke. And so we find ourselves dealing with the years that pass both for us and for our four-legged friend.
There are various theories, it is said that to calculate the age of a dog, just multiply 7 human years for each year of life of the dog but this game is not very reliable. If it were that simple, a multiplication was enough ...! Instead, we will realize with experience or studies, or both, that for a large dog every year it is worth much more than 7, otherwise for small dogs, a year is worth about 6.
Average life of large breed dog
The average dog life when he has one size XXL it can range from 9 to 11 years. Let's see some famous and extra large breeds specifically. The beautiful Great Dane has an average life of 8.4 years, Rottweiler is Dobermann they are luckier and arrive at 9.8, the Bernese Mountain Dog unfortunately only 7 years of average life has, with many exceptions. My Lucy has spanned over 10 years and in excellent health. Among the rather large dogs we can also remember the Setters who are around 11 years old, the Irish red and white setter it reaches almost 13 years on average.
Average dog waist small size
As anticipated, the average life of a small dog is longer, it even reaches, if we keep our companion on the go, even at 15, when the size is medium, we go down to around 13: not bad anyway.
Among the best known breeds, the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is the most unfortunate, given that the average life span of this type of dog is about 10.7 years, otherwise other breeds behave like Pekingese, Dachshund, Chihuahua and Whippet which are around 15 years on average.
Average life span of the German Shepherd
The German Shepherd has an estimated average life of just over 10 years, to be precise 10.3 years, if we prefer to focus on breeds that presumably could stay with us for a longer period of time, then we focus on the Dwarf Poodle who reaches 14, 8 years.
According to a study done by an insurance company in Great Britain, after this breed, the longest lived would be the Dachshund and Toy Poodle, the Tibetan Terrier, the Bedlington Terrier and the Whippet.
