About this campaign

Cardiomyopathy is a leading cause of death among many breeds of dogs, not the least of those is the Dberman Pinsche. A Doberma affected bythis disease is likely to experience abnormalities resulting in congestive heart failure or sudden death. North Carolina State University - School of Veterinary Medicine is currently conducting encouraging research to idntify additional genetic markers for this disease.

Monies raised by this boster campaig will be tareted specifically to help fund that important on going research.

IMG_0314jpegTex (Ch.Montwood'Arista's Texas Hold 'Em MX, MJS, XF, T2B,ROM ) wasa very special dog with an incredible zest for life and love of everyone he met. He was a Champion in the breed ring, passed the Doberman Working Aptitude Evaluation (WAE) with flying colors, and earned numerous performance titles, placing him on the Doberman Register of Merit.

While he loved everything he did, there can be no doubt his favorite thing in the world was Agility. He ran the course with speed and intensity rarely seen in a dog of his size. This love of running, jumping, tunnels, and best of all weaves, put him consistently at the top of his height class in trials, as well as establishing him as one of the fastest Doberman Pinschers in the country. Tex and his owner /agility partner, Mike, twice traveled to the Doberman Pinscher Club of America Nationals where they were invited to compete in theWeave Pole Challengeat the annual Top 20 Event. Tex won thecompetition both years and earned a large fan base and cheering section in the process.

On November 13,2015, Texhad just completedan agility course at a local competition. As Mike was putting his leash back on him to lead him out of thering, Texcollapsed and succumbed to undetected Cardiomyopathy.Although he died doing what he loved best it was a devastatingmoment for Mike and everyone at the competition.

Tex'sdeath was unexpected. He was tested regularly for this disease and had aperfect Holterreport less than 6 months prior to this tragedy We hope to raise money through this booster campaign to help fund research that will be of significant help to breeders and owners in making decisions that can help reduce this disease in this magnificent breed, and allow dogs like Tex to have longer lives in the future. .
