Everything I've read said approx. 15 years.

I meant to tell you that I'm currently reading THe everything poodle book. There's a lot of good info in there. Good Choice.

I think a lot will also depend on the health of the poodle. Some can far out live the 15 years and many sadly come no where close.

I've also read that having them spayed/neutered (Not sure how to spell that) also extends their life.

Poodles are known to out live many other breeds.

Large dogs live for shorter periods of time then small dogs do. (and irish wolfhoundlife expectancy is only 5-7 yrs) a toy poodle live 12-14 according to my book. the miniature oddly enough is supposed to live slightly longer at 13-15 yrs and a standard is 10-13.
