Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The longevity of Bluey and other Australian Cattle Dogs prompted a 100-dog survey of the breed, which yielded a mean longevity of 13.41 years with a standard deviation of 2.36 years.[3] The study concluded that while Australian Cattle Dogs live on average almost a year longer other breeds in the same weight class, record ages such as Bluey's (verified) or Chilla's (unverified)[4] should be regarded as uncharacteristic exceptions rather than as indicators of exceptional longevity for the entire breed.
