Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Searching for a dog breed that won't break the bank with trips to the veterinarian? Have a look at our list below. Keep in mind that your pet's health is ultimately up to you.
1. Australian cattle dog - This energised breed of dog is renowned for its intelligence, dexterity, and endurance. As a relatively healthy breed, the Australian cattle dog does not have a history of serious illnesses and may live up to 13 years with proper training and appropriate preventative care.
2. Border Collie - Advancements in DNA testing have made it much easier to control the relatively few minor genetic conditions known to affect border collies. As a high-energy dog with a life expectancy of up to 14 years, the Border collie is a great choice for active individuals and young families-- just be ready to provide her with great deals of outdoor playtime and exercise.
3. German Pinscher - This agile and muscular dog is not often associated with critical health conditions, and may live up to 14 years with proper care and plenty of exercise.
4. English Springer Spaniel - Though this mild, cordial breed of spaniel is sometimes known to endure minor eye problems, it is normally less likely to suffer from many serious genetic diseases. A healthy English springer spaniel may live up to 14 years.
5. Chihuahua - With love and attention, this pint-sized pooch species can live up to 18 years. The Chihuahua's petite size means it generally requires less physical exercise than other breeds of dogs.
One of the most amiable hounds, the beagle was bred as a pack hunter and needs companionship, whether human or canine. It loves to explore the outdoors and is an enthusiastic trailer. Given adequate exercise, it is a calm, tractable house pet. It is an excellent child's dog, gentle, incredibly tolerant and always ready to join in a game or an adventure. It is an independent breed, however, and may run off if a trail beckons. It barks and howls.
