The eight healthiest dog breeds.

1. Australian Shepherd Dog

The energetic Australian Shepherd Dog lives up to 15 years. This breed is perfect for outdoor living and watching your dog run in fields. If you're active, this medium-sized breed is friendly, playful, and trainable.

2. Beagle

Beagles are small, but their inquisitive energy keeps them and their owners healthy! However, they are gentle, kid-friendly, and easy to care for. As a smaller breed, they prefer long, slow walks on beaches or in woods and can live to 15 if cared for.

3. Poodle

Poodles were hunting dogs before they were groomed. They live to 18 and are smart and athletic. Poodles are trainable and love to play, so if you can give them enough exercise, they make great pets (including those with families). They rarely shed, making them ideal for allergy sufferers.

4. Greyhound

Greyhounds can run up to 45 mph, and their boundless energy keeps them healthy throughout their lives. The healthiest dogs live 10–13 years. Intelligent and loyal, they get along with children and other pets, making them ideal for active families.

5. Border Collie

Border Collies, medium-sized dogs, are healthy and adaptable. They live up to 15 years and are trainable, loyal, and empathetic. To avoid boredom and destruction, you must exercise them regularly.

6. Basenji

This athletic hunting hound behaves like a cat and grooms like one. Short-haired dogs don't shed, making them ideal for allergy sufferers and those who don't want to groom their dog. Basenjis don't bark, another benefit.

7. Labrador Retriever

Labrador Retrievers are among the healthiest and friendliest breeds. Labradors love active play and get along well with kids and other pets, even as they age. They are easy to train and live up to 13 years.

8. Australian Cattle Dog

Australian Cattle Dogs, which hold the Guinness Book of Records for longest-lived dog at 29 years, were bred to herd cattle and have endless energy. They're friendly and playful, but they can get bored and destroy your couch if they don't get enough exercise and fun.
