As the article says: "This breed has some major health concerns such as cardiomyopathy, sub-aortic stenosis, and hip dysplasia. They may also be prone to tumors, epilepsy, allergies, and skin problems." We've had a number of boxers over two decades, and be sure to take them to the vet right away if you ever find any bumps on their skin, because they are very prone to cancers. A vet told us once, they were once considered the cancer breed, but other breeds have since outdistanced them. We had three of about 8 boxers total we lost to cancer. This is a great breed, very loving and very unique. Hard to have another breed once you've had a boxer.
