Poll: How long did your Dobermans live?

I'm curious - the average age of a Doberman is supposed to be around 10. I'd like to get a sampling from DT owners, especially those who've been in the breed a long time. I've made the poll multiple choice, so hopefully that will give people the option to respond for multiple dogs.

I don't think the poll would work for me because I have had multiple dogs that passed at the same ages.

Sabre was 9ish (Wobbler's).

Rebel was one month shy of 8 (bloat).

Sadie was 12 (I never know what to put as cause, it came on so suddenly, necropsy showed a necrotic section of intestine).

Ember was 11 (cholangiohepatitis).

Wonder was 8 1/2 (lymphoma).

Wish was 9 (osteosarcoma).

Rocket was 11 (although he had dcm, he was euthanized because of degenerative myleopathy).

Karma was 12 (IBD).

Interestingly, the average works out to 10 for me in a fairly small sampling.

Rory will be 13 on Thursday!

I couldn't figure out any way to account for multiple dogs dying at the same age, so this was the best I could do!

Thanks for this post. I have been wondering the same thing. It was starting to look like dobes only lived 4-5 years from what I was reading on this forum.Glad that is not the norm. Once again thanks for doing this post.

EmilyB - 10yrs plus 2 months
Priscilla - 10 yrs plus 2 months
Stormy is 10 in June...worried but not so much

I think you also have to count in what the owners do to keep them alive....quality of care...quality of life and all....some just leave them till they can't get up...

Dartagnan was 11 years & 5 days old. Died from DCM with kidney and liver failures. But, got Maximus the very next day. But, we bought Dartagnan the very next day after our dobe/rott mix died from cancer at 8 years old.

I didn't want to skew the rsults since my boys were put down for aggression, but Titan - Jalar Figaro was put down at 3 (assumed brain tumor at the time!) and Bret, 'Rena'ssance Bretagne (out of Jalar Dandy) was put down at 6.5 and I should have put hm down sooner.

One of my acquaintances has lost every single Dobe she's had at 7! Well bred for the most part too Osteosarcoma, wobblers, then 2 to cardio. All exactly in the 7th year! She's given up now.
