Why do greyhounds have such short lifespan?



  1. 0 Votes

    A common misconception about greyhounds is that they have a short life span because they are LARGE dogs. While larger dogs often suffer from shorter lifespan, the greyhound is different. It can live from up to 12 to 14 years.

    Many purebred species of dogs, in general, have a host of genetic problems that can shorten their lifespans compared to mutts. This is because until relatively recently, purebred dogs were inbred indiscriminately.  But greyhounds are not more likely to have a shortened lifespan than other types of purebred.
