I don't know if my dog has cancer, but she has heartworms. How long will she live?

Heartworms kills a dog if not treated. I don't know how long but the dog needs vet care NOW. It could be too late for her.

not long if you don't get her to a vet. A normal life if you do.

Heartworms? Probably a couple of months. It's a terrible way to die.
Here's a thought. Stop taking selfies of yourself and take the dog to a Vet.
Here's some useful info - you are obviously LEGALLY a child. Children cannot own property. Dogs are property. It's not your dog.

If you get heartworm treatment from your Vet, she may have many years to live. If not treated, it is abuse. It is against the law to NOT take a sick or injured dog in to see a Vet. You are abusing your dog if you don't take it in to see a Vet.

Your dog will not live long and will suffer TERRIBLY, if she had ADULT heartworms, versus ONLY microfiliaria (which can be more cheaply treated).
You need to ask your vet, how bad and HOW ADVANCED the heartworm infection is, not ask us. - WE have no idea what the blood work (from the laboratory) SAID. A "snap test" run by a shelter is TOTALLY insufficient information. Confirm any positive results with another antigen test and microfilaria test from IDEXX Reference Laboratories as recommended by American Heartworm Society (AHS) guidelines.

Ask the vet when you have the heartworm treated and sooner rather than later as she will not suvive without treatment

Not long if you don't get her to the vet. How do you even know she has heartworms? The vet needs to diagnose those, and would have offered you treatment.

You need to ask the vet who is treating your dog. Your vet knows your dogs current situation and medical history better than any of us would. Is she being treated for Heartworms?

It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs and ... such as foxes and coyotes live in proximity to many urban areas, they are considered .... If you don't get your dog test, you won't know your dog needs treatment.
