DOGS

A study has revealed which are the five longest-lived dog breeds

The companionship of a dog is unique because it gives so much affection in a relatively short time compared to human life.

In fact, the average dog can accompany its owners for about ten years, but its life expectancy varies from breed to breed, but also according to various subjective factors.

A study conducted by the National Taiwan University and the Royal Veterinary College, published in the journal 'Scientific Reports', has revealed which dogs live the longest.
