Dogs are frequently regarded as the most playful creatures, you know, apart from Dolphins. As pets, they’re probably the most active. The first domesticated animals, the furry mammal do in fact make for the best of friends, as has been proven by countless medical surveys. Being in their company can even cure a person of depression. There are innumerable dog breeds, from large breeds to small breeds, to mixed breeds and even pedigreed breeds. As the most popular pets worldwide, dogs like Golden Retrievers, Labradors, Chihuahuas, Pugs, Bull Dogs, Great Danes, Dalmatians, and even German Shepherds are the most common domesticated breeds. Sadly, even these furry, energetic pets fall prey to diseases. Larger breeds like Great Danes or German Shepherds or even Francais Blanc et Noir and other larger dogs are especially susceptible to certain such diseases. Some of these diseases can even affect them as puppies. And even though these are not exclusive to larger-breeds, these problems are more commonly found in them.
