Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Looking for a pet dog breed that won't break the bank with visits to the veterinarian? Check out our list below. Keep in mind that your pet's health is essentially up to you.
1. Australian cattle dog - This enthusiastic breed of dog is famous for its intelligence, dexterity, and stamina. As a comparatively healthy breed, the Australian cattle dog does not have a history of severe 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 life expectancy 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 muscular and agile 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 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 generally requires less exercise than other breeds of dogs.
Norwegian Buhund Information
While Norwegian Buhunds make excellent watch dogs, they are also content to lie at your feet at the end of a hard day. Training wise, the Buhund is considered by many to be the most trainable of the Spitz breeds, but obedience training is still a necessity. Because the Buhund was born to herd and sound the alarm, the Buhund needs training and a job to do. Because they are happiest near their owner, they have earned the nickname, “the friendly spitz.”
