The mission of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Genetic Research Foundation is to develop significant resources for basic and applied health programs, with emphasis on canine genetics to improve the quality of life for dogs and their owners.
The purpose of the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier Genetic Research Foundation is to raise sufficient money to initiate research projects keyed to identifying the specific genes that cause the heritable conditions leading to Protein Losing Enteropathy, Protein Losing Nephropathy, and other deleterious familial conditions that affect our breed.
