Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Searching for a dog breed that won't break the bank with visits to the vet? Check out our list below. Keep in mind that your pet's health is ultimately up to you.
1. Australian cattle dog - This energised breed of dog is famous for its intelligence, dexterity, and endurance. 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 suitable 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 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 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 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 typically needs less exercise than other breeds of dogs.
Finnish Spitz Information
Like most spitz breeds, the Finkie is independent and somewhat stubborn, although it is more hunting oriented than other spitz breeds. It is alert, inquisitive and playful, but it is also sensitive, tending to be devoted to one person. It is a breed conscious of its place in the dominance hierarchy, and some males can try to be domineering. It is good with children, and generally good with other pets, but it can be aggressive to strange dogs. It is reserved, even aloof or suspicious, with strangers. In keeping with its barking heritage, the Finkie is proud of its barking ability and likes to show it off — loudly!
