Do cross breed dogs live longer than pedigree dogs?
Cross breed dogs have a longer lifespan in comparison.
Inbred dogs have a risk of carrying genes for illnesses that are common to that specific breed.
Further, "mutts" who have at least two breeds and commonly more, tend to have the least health problems and live longer than their purebred counterparts.
Many believe it's instinctual behavior, harkening back to the days when your dog's wild ancestors would mask their scent to help them sneak up on their prey.
Wolves, for example, have been observed rolling in animal carcasses or the droppings of plant-eating animals, to cover up their own smell during the hunt.
Safe: Some Vegetables.
Your dog can have a healthy snack of carrot sticks, green beans, cucumber slices, or zucchini slices.
Even a plain baked potato is OK.
Don't let your dog eat any raw potatoes or any potato plants from your pantry or garden.
