my heeler just passed away at 14-15 years old. I believe that is pretty average, although my vet told me that the oldest living dog on record was a heeler, he was 31 years old and worked every day of his life.

We had to put my heeler down last yr on super bowl sunday ( 2-6-11 ) he was 17 1/2 yrs old ! Their life expectancy is 12 to 13 yr. I was very lucky to have him for so long. He went with me everywhere for many yrs, even to work. I trained him as a pup, he was very loyal & protective of me & the kids. My husband could not raise his voice or a hand, if so the dog would growl at him (warning him). He never bit anyone, but he would warn, he did nip at heels but never bite, and he loved herding cattle. He was the best dog I ever owned.
