Gobie is getting up there in age, in 9 days he turns 14. He's been pretty healthy up to now, he has some lipomas, had a long illness fighting off tonsilitis, has cervical disc disease but that is currently well under control. He is a busy boy still! Loves to go on walks, although a mile a day is plenty for him, otherwise he sleeps for the next couple of days. I'd like to think he'll make 18, but I read that 15 is about all you can expect. Which makes me sad that I would only supposedly have one year left with him. He was an outstanding agility and obedience dog when he was still sound and could hear. He was a N A U G H T Y boy, and still is, as he permanently wears a belly band indoors. so how long ahve your past minpins lived or how old is your minpin now?

HI, GLAD TO HEAR THAT GOBIE WILL B 14 YRS OLD SOON. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY LUVparty
NIKITA MY MIN PIN TURNED 12 IN OCTOBER AND IS STILL QUITE ENERGETIC. SHE STARTING CATARACTS BUT OTHERWISE SHE CAN BEHAVE LIKE A 2 YR OLD WHEN SHES IN THE MOOD. I ALSO READ 15 YRS IS WHAT THEY LIVE TO. HOWEVER MY FRIEND HAD A CHIHUAHUA CROSS MIN PIN WHO LIVED TO 18. YOU CANT GENERALIZE, ITS UP TO GOBIES HEALTH. HOPE HE LIVES TO BE 20. GOOD LUCK. NIKITA AND HER MOMMY CATHI (SOUTH AFRICA)

The life span of a Miniature Pinscher is actually 12 to 14 years but with in all breeds there are those that can live longer than this. I have had ones live to 19 and several to 16. Majority of mine though over the years have passed away within the 12 to 14 year span.

I am soo glad to hear that the pins normally live such a long life! I have only had my min pin for 3months, but I am having a very hard time dealing with the fact that I have to leave her next month cry We are going to the beach for a week, and I am already dreading it.

Jack is 12 and just now starting to show his age, in the last year he started to get some grey, he is losing his hearing, it's getting harder to keep weight on him, and he doesn't have the energy that he always did when he was younger.

Last month we took him for his wellness exam and he had a full blood panel done and physical and the vet says he is very healthy! I hope he still has many years left, we recently added a puppy brother to our household and that has put a spring in his step again big grin

Belle is 12 in May 2013 and is very attached to me. She was raised as an orphan in my shirt pocket, and loves sitting on my shoulder to this day. An amazing little lady she is!
