Limited Registration

All prices posted are for LIMITED AKC REGISTRATION, full  AKC
registration is available at an additional fee of $150.00 and prior
arrangements MUST be made.

WHAT IS LIMITED AKC REGISTRATION

Limited Registration means that the dog is registered but no litters
produced by that dog are eligible for registration.

Chapter 3, Section 4A of the AKC's Rules Applying to Registration
and Discipline states the following: "Limited Registration may be
requested for a dog when application for individual registration of
the dog is submitted, provided the application, together with a
request for such limitation, is filed by the owner(s) of the litter at
birth.

No offspring of a dog for which Limited Registration has been
granted is eligible for registration. Each registration certificate for
such dog shall carry notice of the limitation, and the limitation shall
continue, regardless of any change of ownership, unless and until
the owner(s) of the litter at birth shall apply to AKC for removal of
the limitation."

A dog registered with an AKC Limited Registration shall be
ineligible to be entered in a breed competition in a licensed or
member dog show. It is eligible, however, to be entered in any
other licensed or member event. These events include: Obedience,
Tracking, Field Trials, Hunting Tests, Herding, Lure Coursing,
Agility and Earthdog.

Limited Registration is determined by the litter owner(s). The litter
owner(s) check the Limited box on the AKC Dog Registration
Application.

Limited Registration certificates are white with an orange border;
the Full Registration certificate is white with a purple border.

Limited Registration can be changed to Full Registration only by
the litter owner(s). The litter owner(s) will need to obtain the
Application to Revoke Limited Status. That form will then need to
be completed and sent to our Raleigh address with the processing
fee. After processing, we will send a Full Registration certificate to
the dog's owner.

Limited Registration helps breeders protect their breeding
programs. If breeders do not want puppies used for breeding
purposes, they can request the Limited Registration option for
those puppies.

The American Kennel Club does not license or endorse anyone
engaged in the commerce of selling purebred dogs and, therefore,
has no control over the business practices of those involved in
such transactions. Membership in the American Kennel Club is
comprised of independent dog clubs located throughout the United
States. No individual persons are members of the AKC.

The AKC will not become involved in disputes concerning 'full' or
'limited' registration of a dog. These disputes must be resolved by
the parties involved in the sale of the dog. The only exception to
this is in cases where there is a contract, signed by all parties
involved and made at the time of the dog sale, that stipulates the
registration status. In those cases, AKC will initiate an inquiry on
the matter.

DOGS SOLD WITHOUT PAPERS

The buyer of an AKC-registerable dog should obtain the dog's AKC
papers from the seller at the same time the dog is purchased. If a
dog is delivered or sold with the understanding that AKC papers
will not be furnished, the buyer should sign a statement agreeing
to this condition. This agreement should be kept in the seller's
records.

If a person acquires a dog without papers, with the explicit
understanding that papers will be furnished for payment of an
additional amount of money, the buyer has, in effect, forfeited any
rights to the papers. If at some later date the buyer wants papers,
then AKC can only advise going back to the seller to resolve the
matter.
