Five canines with the fewest health issues

Picking out the perfect puppy takes a lot more heart than science - you know the right one the second you see her.

However, while selecting a dog breed, you should consider several criteria, including the animal's health & life expectancy, as well as size & temperament.

After all, you need a dog that fits into your lifestyle & that sticks around with you for a long time. Here's a list of the top five dog breeds with the least health issues.

We're starting with this one because it's the breed with the highest average lifespan. If properly cared for, they can live to be 20 years old & almost usually reach their adolescent years. 


According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the longest dog ever documented was an Australian cattle dog named Bluey, who lived to be 29 years old! While the breed's average age is substantially lower, this variety comes from hardy stock.

Because they are so meticulously bred, these beasties also produce healthy animals. Do your research before purchasing a Malinois, as a dishonest breeder may not take the necessary steps, & you may end up with an unhealthy puppy.
