1. Australian cattle dog - This energetic breed of dog is well known for its intelligence, dexterity, and stamina. As a relatively healthy breed, the Australian cattle dog does not have a background of severe illnesses and may live up to 13 years with proper training and proper 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 lifespan of up to 14 years, the Border collie is a terrific 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 endure minor eye problems, it is typically 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 normally needs less physical exercise than other breeds of dogs.
Entlebucher Mountain Dog Information
They may be reserved with strangers. Entles are an active, high energy and physical breed, with above average exercise requirements, so they are not a dog for the casual owner. Entlebuchers do best when they have a job. Although the Entlebucher loves and is devoted to children, his shepherding instincts can make integrating small children and a puppy a bit tricky. The Young Entle can become possessive and begin to consider children to be “his own” to herd and watch over. Being exceptionally strong for his size, the Entle can easily overwhelm a child. Very careful consideration should be taken when considering adding this breed to a family with small children.
