FSCWT-NIH Lifetime Study
I am Helen J Moreland, and I am coordinating the SCWT Lifetime Study offered by SCWTCA in collaboration with the NIH, National Institute of Health, Human Genome Institute. We have a chance for the NIH to look at all the health diseases of the SCWT, by DNA mapping the genome and identifing disease markers. We need samples of blood from dogs born between Jan 1,2006 and Dec 31, 2010.
A message from Our Past President
Welcome to our Website!
The Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier is a wonderful breed of dog, and we at the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier Association of Canada are very happy to have adopted a Wheaten into our families. We really couldn’t ask to have a more fun loving, happy dog in our lives.
Here in Canada, and internationally, Wheatens are involved in activities ranging from being the family couch potato to working in disaster zones, seeking survivors. Our association celebrates Wheatens in all that they do.
