Canine Health Information Center (CHIC) DNA Repository
The CHIC DNA Repository, co-sponsored by the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) and the AKC Canine Health Foundation (CHF), collects and stores canine DNA samples along with corresponding genealogic and phenotypic information to facilitate future research and testing aimed at reducing the incidence of inherited disease in dogs. DNA samples from any purebred dog may be submitted at anytime. Researchers may then access these samples to be included in their canine health studies. Learn more at the CHIC website.
Bullmastiff DNA is extremely limited in the repository- a simple blood draw from your bullmastiff can make a world of difference for our breed.
