Looking for a dog breed that won't break the bank with trips to the veterinarian? Check out our list below. But, keep 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 stamina. As a comparatively healthy breed, the Australian cattle dog does not have a background of serious illnesses and may live up to 13 years with proper training and appropriate 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 terrific choice for active individuals and young families-- just be ready to provide her with great deals 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 experience minor eye problems, it is normally less likely to suffer from many serious 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 typically calls for less exercise than other breeds of dogs.
Irish Setter Information
The Irish setter was bred to be a tireless and enthusiastic hunter, and it approaches everything in life with a rollicking, good-natured attitude, full of gusto and fervor. Given a daily outlet for its energy, it makes a pleasant companion. Without ample exercise, it can be overly active inside or become frustrated. It is an amiable breed, eager to please and be part of its family's activities. It is good with children, but can be too rambunctious for small children. It is less popular as a hunter than the other setters.
