Longevity of Tamaskan

My question is simple, what's the average longevity of a tamaskan?
Thanks!
:D

None have yet died of old age, but it's expected to be around the average for Siberian Huskies... probably 12-14 years or so.

ok, but what are the reasons of the deaths if it isn't about old age? :?

There have been very few deaths in the breed so far.
The breed is very new you have to remember :)

Sadly, things like traffic accidents and swallowing socks, etc... tragic events. :(
Very few have died from health issues and, of those that have died from health problems, very few are genetic.
Most of the health-related deaths have been from rare cases that include kidney infections, etc.

The rainbow bridge is for any pet that a member has lost not just Tamaskans. There are very few Tamaskans in that section.

Although we currently don't know how long a Tam should expect to live since the Tamaskan is still a fairly new breed. My guess is around the ages of the northern breeds that were used to create the Tamaskan.

Siberian Huskies are usually 12-15 years (though my Snoopy is now 16)
Alaskan Malamutes are usually between 12-14 years
German Shepherds are usually 12-15 years
Lapland Huskies are probably the same as the Siberian Huskies
I don't know about the Northern Inuits and Utonagans though.

Compare to most of the smaller breeds, large northern spitz type dogs don't normally live past 18 years where areas the toy breeds like the poms, klee kai, and chihuahua and Russian Terriers are known to live past age 18 years which is longer than a cat's life span. Very few huskies are even lucky enough to live up to 17 years. My Buddy (a chihuahua) was 20 years old when he passed but I highly doubt that my future Tamaskan will live that long.
Though the ages all vary from different individuals, it's likely that the Tamaskan will only live up to the as long as its ancestors did. That's just my guess.

If anyone's Tamaskan lives up to 16-18 or higher THAT would be a record!
