Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Looking for a canine breed that won't break the bank with trips to the veterinarian? Have 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 well known for its intelligence, dexterity, and endurance. As a relatively 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 proper 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 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 muscular and agile 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 suffer minor eye problems, it is normally 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 calls for less physical exercise than other breeds of dogs.
The Dalmatian makes a good playmate for children, although it may be a little too rambunctious for smaller children. Dalmatians get along well with other dogs or household pets, though it is should be socialized as a puppy if possible. The Dalmatian is naturally fond of humans and horses.
