Welcome to the American Boxer Club website

Boxer PuppyThe 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 . . .

The Shine On Project: A Novel Way to Approach Cancer
The vision "to create a world where we no longer fear cancer" drives the work of Dr. Jaime Modiano and his colleagues in the Animal Cancer Care and Research Program of the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine. The "Shine On" study represents a turning point in their efforts to achieve this vision, by finding a way to prevent hemangiosarcoma, an aggressive, malignant tumor of blood vessel cells, in dogs. To do this, Modiano's group plans to use a test to find hemangiosarcoma cells in the blood of dogs at risk for the disease. His group will then treat the dogs that have hemangiosarcoma cells in their blood with a new drug that kills the those cells before they ever have a chance to form a tumor.    Read More

Biomarker Test for Lou Gehrig's Disease Useful in Diagnosing Canine Neurodegenerative Disease

Mizzou researchers seek clinical trial participants for further treatment study
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- In 2009, Joan Coates, a veterinary neurologist, along with other researchers at the University of Missouri and the Broad Institute at MIT/Harvard, found a genetic link between degenerative myelopathy (DM) in dogs and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig's disease in people. Now, researchers have found that a biomarker test that helps diagnose ALS also can assist with determining a diagnosis for degenerative myelopathy. Coates and her research team are seeking clinical trial participants to evaluate a treatment for canine DM.    Read More
