I found a study that says a beagles lifespan has decreased from 12 years, 8 months in 2004 to 10 years in 2014.
is it a credible study? I dont know, but a few days ago a friend and I was talking about that he has noticed that certain beagle bloodlines were less healthy than others, and that some bloodlines have shorter lifespans. What do you think about it? Is this something you have noticed also?
And, yes, I will post the link to the article which discusses the study. Please feel free to comment on this any way you would prefer, whatever feels comfortable.
