Australian Cattle Dog
Although there is no certain way to determine which dog breed is the healthiest, working breeds such as Australian Cattle Dogs are among those that have the least number of issues related to health.
“In my experience, working dog breeds tend to be the healthiest” said Dr. Jennifer Coats, veterinary advisor and DVM in Fort Collins, Colorado. ”Unluckily, there is no hard data to catch a scientific answer” she added.
Australian Cattle Dogs are one of the most perfect working dog breeds because they are intelligent, have problem-solving skills, and have a lifespan of about 10-13 years. In addition to the ability to herd cattle, they are energetic, making them the ideal family dogs. This breed’s major health concerns are deafness, elbow dysplasia, and dysplasia.
