When asking how long a dog is expected to live, one should keep in mind the difference between total years and total healthy years. Some dogs will be healthy and active almost all their lives, while others may suffer from diseases which dramatically shorten the period of healthy, active and productive years. Although one cannot predict the health of a dog with certainty, one can increase the probability of both general health and long life through careful selection and proper care.
