Mutts Are Healthier than Purebreds: The short answer is that the healthiest dog is the one that’s well taken care of. While some breeds are prone to certain diseases, mixed-breed dogs are susceptible to every disease in their genetic history. Don’t buy dogs from *shady* breeders and take good care of your dog — that’s the best way to ensure canine health.
