    Average is around 10 years or so. Some can go at 8, but they are usually over weight and have not been taken care of that much. Some just aren't breed well and will go around 8. It' not unheard of them living to 12 or more. Our handler has one that is 14 years old. Another friend had one that lived to be 14.

    Longevity in Bulldogs is a combination of genetics and lifestyle. Mack died last summer at 9 yrs old. He had a bad heart that we gave him medicine for. I know of 3 dogs who were litter mates that had heart problems. We kept his weight down and took him on daily walks and he lived right up until he died.

    I don't have an elderly EB but in general it's 8-10. I have a co-worker who's bully lived to 14. Dog breeds do have their respective life spans but as always, it will vary from dog to dog. Our Pit Bulls have lived to 2 months shy of 15, 13 and 12 and two were littermates.

    One of the questions my hubby asked me was "you do realize they Bulldogs have a shorter lifespan right?" I said yes I do.
