I don't think it has an influence of how long a dog will live unless in case of tumors with females. It has more to do with development. I am not against spaying/neutering but I would wait that the dog is fully grown to do it. Michelle the dachshund we had was spayed when she was 10 years old. She lived almost to 17. Before spaying she had every year a false pregnancy. She could have developed a tumor too but didn't.
