Hawk, a German Shepherd was misdiagnosed twice before researchers at the University of Missouri were able to confirm that Hawk did NOT have Degenerative myelopathy (DM) and get him the correct treatment for his ruptured disks. These researchers have received funding from CHF to study DM and developed the genetic test that helped to rule out DM in Hawk's case.

Trax, another German Shepherd had a 12-year search and rescue career before losing his life to transitional cell carcinoma (TCC), a form of bladder cancer. Trax's owner entered him in a study conducted by Deborah Knapp, DVM, at Purdue University. The study extended Trax's life and is helping to find the genetic cause of TCC.

The work of the AKC CAnine Health Foundation continues, with the Foundation approving funding for over $1.5 million in new research grants. These new grants cover diverse disease areas such as lymphoma, respiratory disease, cranial cruciate ligament deficiency, skin diseases, epilepsy, osteosarcoma and eye diseases. The studies are seeking the genetic cause of disease; new surgical and medical treatments; and improved ways to diagnose disease.
