Australian Cattle Dog, 12-16 years

Obviously the breed that produced Bluey, the world’s oldest dog, is going to be in this list and that would be the Australian Cattle Dog. These dogs are often also referred to as Blue Heeler, Queensland Heeler, and is, in fact, related to the Dingo—the famous Australian wild dog.

Australian Cattle Dogs are a hardy breed with great strength, agility, and never ending energy. This breed is loyal, intelligent, and they make great companions for runners. Regular exercise and enrichment keep these dogs both physically and mentally in shape—without a doubt a contributing factor to them living to 16 years of age.
