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.
A specialty show is a dog show which reviews a single breed, unlike other dog shows, particularly conformation shows, which are generally referred to as "all-breed" because they are open to all breeds recognized by the sponsoring kennel club.
In the American Kennel Club, a dog needs 15 points to become a Champion, with each win gaining anywhere from zero to five points depending on the number of dogs competing and the area where the show is held.
