What Is the Life Expectancy of a Lhasa Apso?

For a few months now we have been dogsitting a friends 2 lhasa apso’s on and off. My parents are letting me get one of their puppies when they breed early next year.

I was watching a programme called Dogs101 and they said their life expectancy was 20 years the oldest being 29 years of age. However when I look on websites its always like 15.

What is their real life expectancy (not including illness of anything like that)

The life span of a Lhasa Apso is 12 – 14 years, of course . . . that varies with the care the dog recieves and the nutrition.
You can’t get a dog and have it’s life span planned out . . . things happen.

    Same as most dogs, about 15 years.

    Dogs 101 seems a bit off. I was always told by vets and others that Large Dogs 7-10. Medium 10-12 and Small 12-14. Though some small dogs live to be 15+ and you sometimes do see a German Sheppard that is 12 but those are the averages. House cats can live longer…
