I am new here and I have a 14 year old red doberboy (and a very naughty JR X Basenji but he is a whole other story).
I was just wondering can anyone tell me what is the oldest you've ever known a dober to live?
My boy is doing quite well and can still counter surf but when we go on walks (only to the end of the street and back, to get fresh air and smell the latest gossip on the ground) he sometimes loses his rear legs (falls over). I think this will be what eventually takes him away from us.
I guess I'd really like to hear from someone who has had a dobe live to 15 or 16 :)

My vet told me the other day that dobes just don't live this long and every day is a bonus. I know how old he is too because he came to us as a rescue, at about 4 months, and you can't mistake the age of a dog that much when they are about 4 months old.

Good for you, having Fury for 14 great years already.

A few months ago, there was an old thread on "oldest dobe" that kept getting added to.
I think the 17 y/o dobe, was winning...and a number at 15 & 16.
- mine is 11.5 now, and we bless every day...we have our girl, with us
