Top 10 Dog Breeds Who Can Live Beyond 15 Years

If you have ever owned a pet growing up, especially a dog and that pet died, and you are now looking to get a new dog, you have probably wondered what dog breeds live the longest. It’s a natural question. Loss of a loved pet is never easy. So most people end up looking for a pet they know they are going to be with for as long as possible.
Disclaimer: While every dog has the ability to live beyond a certain age, the actual lifespan of a dog is dependent on a combination of factors. Diet, grooming, exercise, environment all play a crucial role in the dog’s life.


While this breed isn’t exactly pure, it still has a relatively good lifespan averaging at least 16 years. The dog gets its good genes from both its Cocker Spaniel and Poodle background. Cocker Spaniels are known to live up to 10 years and Poodles beyond that, so it’s a combination game in which the Cockapoo got the best of both worlds.

Hi, I’m Kevin Bentley, a dog lover and enthusiast. Though I started out as a cat person, my wife quickly set me on the true path of dog love. Now I’m full-on obsessed with dogs and everything related to dogs. I’ve purchased every dog accessory you can think of, so I decided to collect my thoughts about them on this site.
