Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Searching for a dog breed that won't break the bank with trips to the veterinarian? Take a look at our list below. Keep in mind that your pet's health is ultimately up to you.
1. Australian cattle dog - This energetic breed of dog is known for its intelligence, dexterity, and endurance. As a relatively healthy breed, the Australian cattle dog does not have a history of major 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 life expectancy of up to 14 years, the Border collie is a great choice for active individuals and young families-- just be ready to provide her with great deals of outdoor playtime and exercise.
3. German Pinscher - This muscular and agile 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 generally less likely to suffer from many serious genetic diseases. A healthy 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.
The dachshund is bold, curious and always up for adventure. It likes to hunt and dig, tracking by scent and going to ground after game. It is independent but will join in its family's activities whenever given a chance. It is good with children in its own family, but some may snap at strange children. Most are reserved with strangers. Some bark. The longhaired variety may be quieter and less terrier-like; the wires may be more outgoing. Some miniatures are more prone to be timid.
