Wow 14 seems to be pretty common. My first Shepherd almost hit 14 but left in the summer after kindergarten for me. I got one the next year and she'll be 10 in April :]

The GSD I grew up with made it to 16. She was there for my childhood till I was 8. Awesome dog. Her name was Tippie and I still miss her and I am 47.

Our first was only 5 1/2 (brain tumor) but she lived long enough to convince me of value of a good GSD.

Also died in my arms in our basement.

Longest we had one was 13 1/2!

The oldest that I have had was thought to be around 17 or 18 when he died according to his owner. He came into my life when the lady retired, and could no longer care for him. He was around 15 at that time. I wish I could have known him in his prime he was a great dog.

My gsd just passed away 1/24/2013 and she was born 2/4/1998. Her name was "Tatum".. She was a black & tan short-haired AKC certified 3rd generation police dog with documention. She was 11 days shy of her 15th B-day.... She was always a healthy dog that was regularly excerised ( morning & night )..
At age 13 she developed "vestibule" syndrome, which she recovered to about 90% back to normal and then we noticed she started developing breast cancer that slowly over the next 2 years spread through-out her body.. We were told by a vet not to have it removed it because it might spread alot faster, so we didn't.......she was a member of the family and will be missed......
