I have a 56 pound dog, who in theory should be a senior at 10 years of age. He is 7 and a half.. Acts like a puppy, I'm serious. No health problems at all, gets around great, you wouldn't tell he was 7 if his entire face wasn't white.. He is 3 years away from being declared "senior". But do some dogs keep their spunky attitude and energy into way later in life? I've owned many dogs but I've never noticed they way they aged (my family dog passed away while I was young, didn't notice much). Just curious to see what your experiance is with medium sided dog breeds and how they aged.

I also have a 8 year old mastiff and he.. he's struggling. I know age impacts ALOT but I've only ever had large breed dogs (mastiffs and great pyrs), this is my first dog of this size that is aging.

I'm not worried about my dude at all, he's doing amazing, just curious

Depends on the breed, the individual dog, overall general health.....
My boy Merlin turned 13 in late May....
His colors are faded a bit... his ears are crinkled....

But other than that he is tip top..... Physically he has not slowed down a bit.

thats pretty awesome, Deacon is all white in the face but I haven't seen an ounce of slowing down. He's a mutt so I'm not sure how to compare him to any breed but I hope he'll be around for 10 more years...please.
