Hi, Just wondering if anyone knows the life span of a Min Poodle?
I just convinced a friend of mine to adopt a 12 year old poodle from the shelter. She is beautiful. She is one of the nicest dogs I ever met. She loves everyone Kids, cats etc.

Isn't it 16 -20 yrs avg for small dogs. Yeah for your friends. They love him for no matter how long. :)

Den-Den3 died at 18yr (old age). Den-Den2 at 13yr (inoperable malignant tumor). So the potential is there for a long life, barring diseases which can occur at any time to any dog. They're really sweet little dogs! They won't be sorry! And, thanks for helping them find each other! :)

I know of 2 toy poodles, owned by two different people. One lived for 19 years and the other for 21! :eek:
