    The average life span for a Golden Retriever is 11 to 11½ years. Golden Retrievers are susceptible to specific ailments. A responsible breeder will proactively minimize the risk of illness by having the health of dogs in breeding pairs professionally assessed and selected on the basis of complementary traits. They should be taken to the vet for yearly checkups.


    You've got a good old dog there.

    I'm sorry to hear about you're dog, Meagan. We understand your pain. It's hearbreaking to put an animal down that you have loved for so long and that has loved you back.
