#8 – Saint Bernard
Beethoven made the Saint Bernard a popular large breed, and they make great family companions. Unfortunately, they have a shorter life expectancy of 8-10 years.
#9 – Scottish Deerhound
Scottish Deerhounds resemble their Irish Wolfhound cousins, but they are a very different breed. They are excellent lure coursing dogs, as they were bred to hunt deer by running. The average life span for Scottish Deerhounds is 8-10 years.
#10 – Bloodhound
Perhaps a favorite of those who enjoy tracking and search & rescue, Bloodhounds are excellent when it comes to using their noses. These large dogs have a life expectancy of 9-11 years.
