“Dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) are studied both as models for human disease and to improve their health, happiness and longevity as companion animals. Centuries of breeding, and in many cases inbreeding, have resulted in extensive variation in genetics, and behavioral and morphological phenotypes. Certain breeds of dogs are susceptible to inherited and/or environmentally-induced conditions that also affect humans including cancers, cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases, neurological disorders, deafness and blindness.”
