My husband's childhood Rottie, Jordan, was 14 when she passed. Our breeder was shocked to hear about that, so I'm guessing 15 could be the oldest. I've always heard they only lived 9-11 years. Is that true? If so, anyone knowwhy?

Wow, fifteen is old. What a gift, to have one that long. Mine was Eleven when she was put down. I guess I could've kept her alive for me, but I hated seeing her suffering..

I know several who were 14. The oldest that I know of was 16. For the life of me I cannot remember that dogs name, but for the vets who have been hanging around the boards for a long time, they should remember this dog.


My rescue gal Athena is pushing 13 with few signs of slowing down. She acts all crotchety until the dog cookie comes out and then she'd put Carl Owens to shame.

Our Rottie, Mercedes Black Rock (Cede),was born 8/28/1991 and she is still with us. Unfortunately she was just diagnosed with osteosarcoma which has also spread to her lungs. We are very blessed to have her as long as we have (15 1/2 years), but we are currently faced with the reality that we will have to put her down soon.



She passed away last night so that decision was made for us.

I'm so very sorry to hear that. You gave her the best 15 years she could have ever had.

Our oldest male, Rucus, is going to be 11 in June. He has no health problems whatsoever. If it wasn't for the gray on his chin you would never know how old he was. Hopefully he will be around as long as some of these dogs on here. He still plays ball for hours at a time and we go for long walks all the time.

I have a 15 year old Rottweiler. Ive had him since he was 8 weeks old. And he's still as healthy as can be. He is thinner but that comes with age. Apollo, Cape Cod Ma
