My GWP has just turned 15 and the vet is amazed she's still alive and still in such good shape. She is mostly blind, going deaf and a little arthritic. She needs help on stairs but still walks 1 1/2 - 2 miles a day.

So my question is How old can a GWP get to be?

WOW, that is like 105 years old in human years! Sorry I am not able to answer your question.

Thanks for the reply. I'm curious to know if anyone has stories about how old their dogs have gotten to be. Or maybe a breeder knows of any dogs of theirs that lived to great age.

Having a blind, 15 year old GWP who still thinks she's 2 is quite an experience! The goofiness never wears off. She's a retired hunter, by the way.

I owned Ch. Hilltop's Suzie Wong (a repeat breeding of the famous "Racket") and she lived to 16 years 8 months-more out of sheer obstinance than anything else.
