The Boxer is likely to have a heart disease known as subvalvular aortic stenosis. The main symptom is the inability of the left ventricle to deliver the right amount of blood to the aorta. It works hard to function properly but eventually warns out which leads to serious heart problems. In many cases, surgery is applicable.
