Purebred dogs are descended from a limited amount of dogs, meaning that they eventually become very inbred. All purebred dogs are genetically predisposed to certain health issues, such as how cocker spaniels are very prone to getting cataracts. With mixed breeds, the gene pool is diverse; the recessive genes carrying health problems are buried.

How many years can a mixed dog live?

There are several different things that play a role in the number of years a dog lives. One is the size of the dog, normally the bigger the dog the shorter the years. Second is the health of a dog so vets make a big difference. Some breeds of dogs do live longer than others, but some new studies show that some cross breeds live longer because they have fewer genetic problems.

How long does dogs usually live?

No. A more important factor on life span is usually the size of the dog. The larger the dog, the longer the lifespan, of course there isn't a drastic difference, it is very slight.

Which lives longer a cat or a dog?

Generally speaking, a cat will live longer, but not by much.

How long do mixed breed dogs live?

The life span of cross or mixed breeds depends largely on several factors including the breed of the parents, the traits inherited from the parents (offspring may inherit harmful traits from a particular parent breed instead of its desirable traits. ie: hip dysplasia if the parent dog is a purebred German Shepherd) , its general size, and external factors including lifestyle, diet, diseases, and health/oral care. The longevity of mixed breeds generally exceeds those of pedigree heritage because they don't suffer from the genetic health complications associated with interbreeding between identical/similar dog breeds. Smaller sized dogs usually live longer because there is less physical stress on their bodies than larger sized dogs, with an average of 13-16 years. Medium sized dogs live, on average, between 12-15 years, and larger dogs live between 6-11 years. Again, these are averages. There are always exceptions to the rule depending on the aforementioned factors. Some dogs may exceed or not even reach the average life expectancy for their cross breed types. And, of course, some breeds are more resilient and hardy than others. (ie: Collies and collie mixes typically live longer than Great Danes and their mixed counterparts).
