Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Trying to find a pet dog breed that won't break the bank with trips to the veterinarian? 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 renowned for its intelligence, agility, and stamina. As a comparatively 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 - Advances 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 terrific 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 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 generally 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 typically requires less exercise than other breeds of dogs.
Collies are impressive dogs; friendly, highly-intelligent, proud, and beautiful. They are great at understanding human's moods and they are very fond of children, making them ideal family pets. Collies require daily exercise and human interaction to be happy. Gentle training is all that is required for a Collie to learn easily and quickly. They have historically been and continue to be beloved family companions.
