It is probably some kind of mutt, so as not to be weakened by inbreeding.
The hand of God may well be all around us, but it is not, nor can it be, the task of science to dust for fingerprints.

Thats way beyond the life expectancy .

I believe the longest lived dog was an Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Heeler) who lived to be 29 years 5 months.

However the Cattle Dog's average lifespan is about 12-15 years. The average lifespan of a chihuahua is 11-18 years so maybe they deserve the record as the longest lived breed.

Longest Living Dog Is a Chihuahua

Postby Chihuahuaworldor » Mon Nov 12, 2007 5:20 am

They are the smallest and the longest living dog.
Living 11 to 20 years!
There is one on record that lived to be 23:)

Not the best dogs for kids.
I have done rescue for 10 yr and kids are the number one cause of injury with this breed.

They are usually bond with one person but do ok with couples :D

Hope this helps!!

Remember RESCUE!!!!!
