there is no difference
Nearly 40% of small breed dogs live longer than 10 years, but only 13% of giant breed dogs live that long. The bi­ol­o­gists at Ger­many’s Uni­ver­si­ty of Göt­tin­gen analyzed data on over 56,000 dogs rep­re­sent­ing 74 breeds and con­clud­ed that every increase in 4.4 pounds (2 kg) reduces life ex­pectan­cy by ap­prox­i­mate­ly one month.
