Leonard Nunney, a biologist at the University of California, Riverside, and the primary author of the study, 

had the goal of gaining an understanding of the origins of cancer and the manner in which it is launched in certain dog breeds specifically.  

It was noted by Nunney that although the chance of having cancer in people is higher as they become older, this is not the case for dogs. 

Dogs ranging in size from a Chihuahua to a mastiff and a Great Dane were included in this new study.
