Yeah, without defining "health", as Kaydee pointed out, and without defining "breed" (because apparently Heinz 57 is a breed) this list is just doomed from the start, LOL.

Yeah, not a fan of that article.... Finnish Spitz are SUPER healthy, but you would never even see them on a list like that because they aren't common - same with other rare breeds.

The part in the German Shepherd that says

"A major dog health problem relating to spinal curvature has been noted more often in recent years, especially in the Americanized version of the breed (European German Shepherds, not subject to such draconian inbreeding, do not suffer this anomaly as often)."

Makes NO sense! The American line dogs don't even have the severely curving backbone like the West German dogs do so why on earth would they suffer from something they don't even have!

Border Collies should be higher, they are very healthy. They also are setting people up for failure by telling them that mix breed dogs are definitely going to live 10-16 years, and don't have any health problems. Its all a tossup if you don't know the genetic background of a dog. It could live 16 years, it could live 6.

Also, poodles are the unhealthiest breed out there? Are they on crack?

And umm this quote from the Corgi section
"Most of the health problems these animals develop are related to aging: Von Willebrand's disease (which affects blood platelets), hip dysplasia, and myelopathy."

*headdesk* The worst part is people read this and automatically believe it. Cause no "study" on the internet can be wrong
