Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Trying to find a canine breed that won't break the bank with trips to the vet? Check out our list below. But, remember that your pet's health is ultimately up to you.
1. Australian cattle dog - This energised breed of dog is popular for its intelligence, agility, and endurance. As a comparatively 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 simpler 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 active individuals and young families-- 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 plenty 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 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 normally calls for less physical exercise than other breeds of dogs.
