How do you know when your dog is getting older?

I have a Shih Tzu.

Updates:
Well we've had her for 4 years and the vet says she's an adult now last time we took her. And mom says she's starting run different and I was just wondering if their were signs that are different from when she was in the puppy stage. If that makes more sense.

  • I have one too, she is 6 years old now, not as wild as she use to be but will run if you play with her

  • Dogs get gray hair too - around their eyes.

  • In my experience the telltale signs are a decrease in energy, a tendency to sleep more and in advance stages a lessened appetite. Always watch out for this because it may also indicate disease. Not so different from humans growing older, really.

  • I'm not sure what you are wanting to know? I mean dogs are like people and they age as well?
