2. Border Collie - Advances 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 fantastic choice for young families and lively 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 plenty 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 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 exercise than other breeds of dogs.
Hokkaido Dog Information
The breed is known for fidelity to its owner, bravery, and the ability to withstand the cold, among other traits. It has an innate sense of direction and smell, and can therefore return to its master no matter how great the distance. Temperament will vary depending on the lineage and region of upbringing. They are good with children if they are raised with them from puppyhood and/or properly socialized. Children should be taught how to display leadership skills, and the dog should be taught to respect the child.
