"Hot dog" dogs are cute and fluffy animals that usually live about 15 to 20 years, which is a pretty long time for humans.

Toy Poodle

Toy poodles tend to live the longest of all the poodle breeds—about 15 to 20 years. This is because they are so small.


Long considered a wonderful family pet, the average beagle lives approximately 12 to 17 years. In fact, the longest living beagle, Butch, lived to an incredible 27 years!
