Someone lied to you. ;) Every breed has a different "average" life span. The word average is the key word, and a lot of factors go into that. Certain bloodlines within breeds live longer than other bloodlines within the same breed...mostly because of genetics. It seems that larger breeds age faster than smaller breeds, so a Great Dane might not live as long as say, a Schnauzer. Healthcare goes a long way in determining lifespan too.

10 years ago the "average" lifespan for a Bulldog was around 7 or 8 years. Thanks to advances in Vetrinary medicine and responsible breeders who healthscreen their dogs prior to breeding so they don't produce undesireable traits, life spans have gone up. They are making good strides on breeding out serious health problems. 2 of my wife's Bulldogs just turned 11 last week. She's had others that lived to a ripe old age of 13...which is anchient for a Bulldog. :)
