I know there are alot of variables to this question, but I'm going to ask anyway. What would the average life expectency be of an EB? Here's why I ask. Our vet may possibly have a 10yr. old EB in need of a new home. His human is very elderly, & most likely will be moving to an assisted living establishment. The health of this old pup is average to good for his age. He weighs 54 lbs. My son has always wanted an EB, as his stepfather had 3 of them when my son was younger & living with him. He is aware of the medical problems they can possibly have, & is willing to take the old pup & give him a good home for the rest of his remaining years. He's not worried about the possible life span, just curious, so I told him I would try & find out. I have a 2.5 yr. old AB named Brody, & have come to this forum many times in the past for advice,( and I needed alot of it LOL), & you great people never let me down. If you can give us any insight on this we would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
