The average lifespan for a Biewer Terrier ranges from 14 to 16 years. Some Biewers live as long as 18 years.
Biewer Terriers as all Toy breed dogs live much longer and get older than larger dogs. Big dogs usually develop age-related issues earlier in their life than small dogs. A healthy diet plays a big role in the lifespan of a Biewer Terrier.
