Tell me about them. I was owned by two. Both females and lucky for us, unusually long lived. Our first, a pick of the litter, lived for exactly 8 years. Our second, a rescue, (we were told she was18 months old) lived almost another 11 years. Fantastic, intelligent companions and protectors.
I’ve had Wolfies since 1988...Maggie, Maire, Enya, Siobhan, Medbh, Fiona, Ruari, Clare and Aife.
The longest living one lived one week after her 9th. birthday. You are VERY blessed to have one live to 12.
The only bad thing about the breed is their short lifespans. They never act hyper — not even when they’re pups. And they don’t act up in the house. NICE, NICE dogs.
I dread the day when I’m too old to have one.
