Dogs on ShowDog can die. When they die, their owner will be listed as deceased.
How early a dog can die is based on their breed. Each breed's lifespan is listed on the breed's page. They can live past that age, but that is the youngest they can die. High COI can cause a dog to die early.
Dogs can also die from an offensive name or from the owner breaking a rule/cheating/exploiting a glitch.

There are about 900 breeds of sheep in the world.
The Kennel Club (UK) system, which is also used by the Australian National Kennel Council and in other countries, is considered the most difficult to earn a title under.
A specialty show may be regional or national. A "Best in Show" win at a national specialty show is tremendously prestigious, indicating that the winning dog or bitch triumphed at a contest which attracted entries from the most serious fanciers of that breed in the country or continent. Some specialty shows attract international entries.
