Some breeds have gained, over the course of crossbreeding, robustness and iron health. Discover 5 breeds of dogs that are both resistant, enduring and with great longevity.

If the character or the appearance of a dog are major criteria for adoption, the question of health should not be neglected. Indeed, some breeds are more likely to suffer from health concerns, which generates significant costs.

Accustomed to the harshest conditions when used as a sled dog, the Siberian Husky is the robust dog par excellence. In addition to not fearing the cold, it is very little susceptible to disease. Apart from a few common diseases in all dogs, such as cataracts or hip dysplasia, the Siberian Husky is a real titan.

In good health, a husky can live between 10 and 13 years. However, to stay in good health, this dog needs to exercise and must avoid too sunny climates.

If he is sought after for his intelligence, his playful nature and his beautiful clear eyes, the Australian Shepherd is also a dog with robust health. Like the Husky, it is only slightly subject to hereditary diseases. Some individuals may suffer from eye problems or hip dysplasia. However, these cases are rare.

In addition to the Shepherd, its cousin the Australian Cattle Dog is also a disease resistant dog. Both breeds live an average of 12 years.

Intelligent and athletic, the Border Collie is generally acclaimed as a herding dog. Sporty, very active and resistant to cold, he is only rarely sick. However, he remains sensitive to the same risks as robust dogs:

  • skin problems,
  • eye problems,
  • dysplasia.

But if he is a good working dog, he is also appreciated as a companion dog. In addition, he has an above-average life expectancy, often around 15 years.


Beagle Tetiana Garkusha

Known as a hunting dog, the beagle is an ideal companion for lovers of robust and small dogs. Less imposing than the other dogs on this list, he remains very resistant. Moreover, he likes both temperate and sunnier climates without his health suffering.

With an average lifespan of 13 years, the beagle is a wise choice. However, it should be kept in mind that he may suffer from herniated disc, anemia or meningitis.

The robustness of the Belgian Shepherd Malinois is an asset acclaimed by the armed forces. A dog used by customs officers or police officers, he is also a good guard and house dog. Very affectionate towards his masters, he is naturally playful, especially with children.

Resistant to both heat and cold, it can live in all environments and is not very susceptible to disease. Like other dogs, he can suffer from hip dysplasia. But this remains rare and he can live between 10 and 12 years without health concerns.
