Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Trying to find a pet dog breed that won't break the bank with trips to the vet? Take a look at our list below. But, bear in mind that your pet's health is ultimately up to you.
1. Australian cattle dog - This energetic breed of dog is popular for its intelligence, agility, and endurance. As a relatively healthy breed, the Australian cattle dog does not have a background 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 lifespan of up to 14 years, the Border collie is a great choice for young families and lively individuals-- 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 a lot of exercise.
4. English Springer Spaniel - Though this mild, cordial breed of spaniel is sometimes known to experience 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 passion and attention, this pint-sized pooch species can live up to 18 years. The Chihuahua's petite size means it normally needs less exercise than other breeds of dogs.
