The price you pay for your dog is little compared to the love and devotion he or she will return over the many years you will be with them. With proper care and affection, your dog can live to be very old; thanks to modern veterinary science and improvements in canine nutrition, dogs today are better maintained and love longer. It is not uncommon to see dogs living well into their teens. Over all speaking, smaller dogs will live longer than big dogs. With love and proper care any dog will live to its optimum age.
