If your talking about the Canadian Forces rescue helicopter based on the CH-46.

Forever and a day!

Seriously though. It really depends on how well the dogs live. It varies widely.

I think dogs generally live to 12 to 14, while cats are 14 to 16 years.

We had a dog that we had to put down at 15 years old. He was healthy, but his mind was gone. Twice attacked a family member (ME!).

We had a cat that we put down at 20 years old. His health deteriorated rapidly in the end.

I had a black Labrador once. Her name was Taffy, and she was a mere 9 years old when I had to put her down. She had cancer, and it was hurting her in the end. Cried for a week. Funny thing about Taffy was that she hated the water. Dogs can live into their late teens depending on their lifestyle. Hope this helps. Best regards.

I grew up with Labs. A well-cared for Lab will usually make it to 12. Barring cancer & other diseases of course. Labs are perceptable to knee & hip problems though so expect to have to fork out some vet fees.

They are very good natured & great with children, but because of their size, make good watch dogs as well.

Once they hit 11 years, they'll slow down and likely develop arthritis. Watch their quality of life...if they have trouble walking regularly and cry alot (with no apparent isolated pain), it might be very old age & time to have them put down (as much as that will hurt). This won't happen overnight but slowly.
