What year did Rin Tin Tin die?

Three dogs were used for "The Adventures Of Rin-Tin-Tin," all male purebred German Shepherds, very similar in appearance and characteristics. All the dogs were owned by Lee Duncan. Rin-Tin-Tin IV was the principal dog with a bloodline going back to the original Rin-Tin-Tin (1920-1932), also owned by Duncan. The others were "Hey You" and "Rin-Tin-Tin II (used sparingly). The typical life of a German Shepherd is 10-15 years. The series ended in 1959. Rin-Tin-Tin IV was born in 1952, according to the fan club. If, indeed, this is the same dog who died in 1986, he would be 34 years old for a German Shepherd, almost unheard of. The exact date of Rin-Tin-Tin IV's passing is not listed. Today Rin-Tin-Tin the 12th makes tours. I think it is more likely a bloodline grand-dog, like Rin-Tin-Tin 6th who died in 1986. Duncan passed away in 1960. The Rin-Tin-Tin purebred blood line is still breed-ed in Texas, being passed on from Duncan to someone there. It continues today. I can tell you for certain Rin-Tin-Tin V, the son of the dog used for the television series, was born in 1957 and died in 1964.
