How many years does a Shih Tzu live.

My Shih Tzu has been having skin issues and infections. Now she has a problem with what appears to be her left hind leg. She has problems standing and walking. She is on medication for the internal infection, and I am taking her back to the Vet next week.


I am very confused about when is it time to decide to let her go. I love her but feel I am being selfish. It breaks my heart to see her unable to walk, and she has a difficult time standing at her dish to drink water.

She is 13 years old and has battled allergies, lesions, and skin problems for years.

Is it time to let her go?
