Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Trying to find a pet dog breed that won't break the bank with visits to the vet? Check out our list below. Keep in mind that your pet's health is essentially up to you.
1. Australian cattle dog - This enthusiastic breed of dog is well known for its intelligence, agility, and stamina. As a relatively healthy breed, the Australian cattle dog does not have a history of severe illnesses and may live up to 13 years with proper training and suitable preventative care.
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 life expectancy 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 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 lots of exercise.
4. English Springer Spaniel - Though this mild, cordial breed of spaniel is sometimes known to suffer minor eye problems, it is normally less likely to suffer from many major genetic diseases. A healthier 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 generally calls for less physical exercise than other breeds of dogs.
