    Unfortunately, he'll probably only live to be about 5 or 6. Really huge dogs like Mastiffs, Great Danes, Newfies don't live very long....their hearts give out. Sorry to be Debbie Downer.

    Yes, that's true, though I also heard that mixed breeds are stronger than full-bred dogs. But yeah, maximum age for really big dogs like Saint Bernards or Irish Wolfhounds etc. is around 6-9 years.

    Newfs at least here in Canada usually make it to at least 10. My Newfoundland is 8 and is still acting like a friggin six month old. Most Danes usually make it to 10 that I know of anyhow. Maybe it's the winters, it preserves us. lol

    However a lot of Wolfhounds still seem to have problems making it to 8, which is the only thing stopping me from getting one.
