Average Life span

Post by Guest on Fri Jan 28, 2011 12:49 pm

I have never even thought to check on this...

What is the Average life span of a well looked after Staffy ?

My sister was in a state last night saying that Titan ( rotti) was 6 and her last one died at 7 and she will be gutted when the time comes...

I know there is a Stray in our street, his owner is in Jail.. and we all feed and leave water out for him. he seems to follow the sunshine and we moved into this house 11 years ago.. he must be 12-14 by now.

I'd agree with Steve - 10 to 12 years, but that's just an average. If they're fit & well & don't get anything nasty in their old age, then 14 or 15 wouldn't be out of place. there's a staffy we see every morning who is 13 & still going strong!

WOW thanks.. I wasnt sure how long.

7 is short for a Rotti I know... but Zac had 2 Cuciate ( spelling) lig done, one each leg, and he was miss treated till my sister took him in at 6 months
so we are not sure if that effected his life span
