The Leonberger Health Foundation is a non-profit group that funds
research projects to help Leonbergers. They participate with other
breeds by supporting grants that may lead to genetic tests and or
possible cures for some of the most devastating diseases that occur in
our breed. I strongly encourage everyone to participate in funding
these projects--they are the singular most important activities to gain
health and longevity for all Leonbergers. Visit their website at
Meanwhile, read about the active grants and research projects.
Included here at the request of the LHF are forms that you can
download and use to join in this
profoundly important research. Include your Leonberger in the
DNA bank and
please, as hard as it
is to think about, if you lose your Leo, you need to fill out a
Cause of Death Form
and send it in.
Only by joining together can we ever offer these gentle giants, these
adorable, lovely creatures a
chance to enjoy long life and good health. They need YOU.
