The information here is for your enjoyment and education about that wonderful breed the Boxer.
Other breeds have pronounced specialized talents . . . . hunting, herding, trailing, and so on . . . but for a combination of the outstanding virtues of many with the faults of a few, our Boxer is the most gifted of canines. For the man, woman or child who wants an all-round dog, he has no equal. No other dog is more individual in appearance, more keenly intelligent or sanely even-tempered. These virtues alone are priceless if the dog is to become part of his master's family, which he should for the well-being of all concerned. The Boxer has a faculty of worming his way into the good graces and the hearts of an entire household. He seems to offer something special to each person he meets. It's astonishing, but true . . .

|HEALTH & RESEARCH COMMITTEE|
|Echocardiograms at 2014 ABC
Echocardiograms will be performed by Dr. Kate Meurs, Washington State University with assistances from Ohio State University.
Cost: $125.00 per dog for pre-registration
Dates: Monday, May 5, 2014, Tuesday, May 6, 2014 and Wednesday, May 7, 2014
No shaving of dogs will be necessary. A report will be given at the time the Echo is performed. Echocardiography is the method of choice for clearing dogs of sub-aortic stenosis and for determining the origin and significance of heart murmurs.
Dr. Keith Montgomery, North Carolina State University, will be speaking prior to the annual meeting about his research into Indolent Corneal Ulcers in Boxers
. He is currently conducting research with the ultimate goal of a DNA test.
The ABC Health & Research committee plan to draw blood for DNA for Drs. Montgomery and Suter. Dr. Montgomery will need a three generation pedigree
Dr. Suter's area of research is Lymphoma
and he would like to have DNA from Boxers seven (7) years or older that have not been diagnosed
