Do smaller dogs live longer?

I was always under the impression that smaller dogs lived longer than bigger dogs. I'm aware that bigger dogs tend to suffer from more health problems, but do they die a lot faster compared to little dogs? Or is it about the same?

Well, I hear they live longer because they don't age as fast as bigger dogs to, as well, they are at lower risk of cancers because of how much slower they age.

So yeah, they do tend to live a bit longer.
