Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Trying to find a canine breed that won't break the bank with visits to the vet? Check out our list below. But, bear in mind that your pet's health is ultimately up to you.
1. Australian cattle dog - This lively breed of dog is known for its intelligence, agility, and endurance. As a comparatively 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 suitable preventative care.
2. Border Collie - Advancements 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 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 muscular and agile dog is not often associated with critical 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 typically less likely to suffer from many major genetic diseases. A healthy 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 normally calls for less physical exercise than other breeds of dogs.
