The 25 Dog Breeds With the Longest Life Spans

Italian Greyhound dog

Italian Greyhound, 15 years

Italian Greyhounds may be just true miniature Greyhounds, but they’ve got all the playfulness and affection of a full-size.

At just over a foot tall, they are tiny dogs with relatively long, slender legs and curved lines. They were bred and made popular in medieval times to be companions and decorative sidekicks. They’re easy to groom and have high health rankings as well as exercise needs. Just like their larger counterparts, they have a serious prey drive and will be chasing small animals for up to 15 years.
