  • 8 – 12 years depending hoe they are looked after usually



  • I have a Staffy cross Red Heeler, he’s 13 1/2 and showing no signs of kicking the bucket. He’s slowed down a lot and not as active as he used to be, but that’s to be expected at his age. At his recent vet check, we were told to expect another 4 or so years out of him



  • My staffy is 4 but I wish she would live for ever shes such a great lovely dog.



  • About 15 years
    generally smaller breeds live longer, larger breeds shorter. depending on genetics, life etc



  • I’d say about 12-14 years they remind me of mini rotties gorgeous.



  • Our last one was 14 when he left us, my current is 2 1/2 and I hope to have just as many years with him.



  • I wish dogs lived longer.



  • My husbands staffy lived for 17 years :) We have a staffy/beagle who is 5 and I couldnt imagine life without him.



  • Staffies typically live anywhere from 10 to 15 years, but like every breed, it depends on the individual dog. For really comprehensive information on anything to do with owning a Staffy, check out this website. Hopefully it will be of help to you.

  • My friends boy was an elderly 17 years when he passed.



  • I hope for a very long time but i have heard the larger the dog the less life span :(


  • I always thought that any dog breed could live up to 16 years, give or take – depends on a number of things though. I want our dog to live forever, couldn’t imagine him not being in our lives.



  • Large dogs have a life span of 10 years any thing over that is a bonus and as they are considered a small breed life span is 16 years any thing over that is a bonus but in saying this it also does not mean that they will definatly live that long medium sized dogs is 14 years this is just a guide that we used when I worked as a vet nurse. You have to take things like health and things like that into consideration. All these ages are not set in stone. They are just a guide.



  • I know of two, one is 16 yrs and the other is 11 yrs both still living and well so I guess it depends on the dog



  • You could go to your local vet and ask for advice:)
