2. Border Collie - Advances in DNA testing have made it 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 fantastic choice for young families and active individuals-- just be ready to provide her with lots of outdoor playtime and exercise.
3. German Pinscher - This agile and muscular dog is not often associated with major 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 suffer minor eye problems, it is typically less likely to suffer from many severe genetic diseases. A healthier 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 usually requires less physical exercise than other breeds of dogs.
The boxer is playful, exuberant, inquisitive, attentive, demonstrative, devoted and outgoing; it is a perfect companion for an active family. It can be stubborn, but it is sensitive and responsive to commands. It may be aggressive toward strange dogs, but it is generally good with other household dogs and pets.
