Dog Breeds with The Least Health Issues
Searching for a canine breed that won't break the bank with trips to the veterinarian? Take a look at 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 well known for its intelligence, dexterity, and endurance. 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 proper 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 agile and muscular 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 experience minor eye problems, it is generally 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 normally calls for less physical exercise than other breeds of dogs.
The temperament of a papillon is a happy, friendly, adventurous dog. They are not shy or aggressive. Papillon's make excellent family dogs but should be watched around little children, as should any dog, due to a small child's lack of understanding of a dog's behavior and the likelihood that they will do something to upset the dog.
