long lived German Shepherds German Shepherds longevity

Long lived German Shepherds - breeders focused on German Shepherd longevity

As responsible German Shepherd breeders, one of the main things we focus on is German Shepherd longevity. Our own foundation male, Ash, is over 13 1/2 years young. We have also had plenty of 10, 11, and 12 year old dogs that we have personally owned, in addition to others in our lines that we breed. Our goals is to not only produce a beautiful dog, but one that is healthy and ideally, a long-lived German Shepherd.

How long do German Shepherds live? What is the average German Shepherd lifespan?

As of approximately March 2018, the American Kennel Club lists the life expectancy of a German Shepherd to be between 7-10 years of age.

Oldest living German Shepherds in our lines



long lived German Shepherds - Ash German Shepherd longevity

Ash: 13 1/2 + years - Ash is our foundation male and is found in many of our dogs!! At some point, we will have puppies available from him again as we have had his semen collected and frozen for future use.

long lived German Shepherds - Snickers

Snickers: passed, 12+ years

German Shepherd longevity

Greta: passed, 10 1/2 years

long lived German Shepherds = Java

Java: passed, 11 years

Pippi: passed, almost 13 years
Thunder: passed, almost 13 years
Lola: passed, 12 years
Kuma: passed, 13 years
Rimington: passed, 12+ years
Mark: passed, 12 years

One thing to note is that the German Shepherds who lived 10+ years in our lines were large German Shepherds (many also known as giant German Shepherds).

While food and excellent care to play a role, it is hard to deny a genetic aspect to some dogs living longer. One of our goals is to extend the lifespan of our dogs and ideally produce some of the world's oldest German Shepherds!
