Pet puppies are sent to their new homes with limited registration.
Please read the explantion for limited registration from AKC Below. It
is very important that you understand what limited registration means
to you and your puppy.
Limited Registration means that the dog is registered but no litters
produced by that dog are eligible for registration.
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 Registration box on the AKC registration application
(blue form) rather than the Full Registration box. A litter owner must
confirm the choice by signing in the signature box provided on the form.
If the litter is co-owned, the owner and co-owner must sign individually.
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 for
Removal of Limited Registration of an AKC-Registered Dog (form AXLTDR).
That form will then need to be completed and sent to our Raleigh address
with a $25.00 processing fee. After processing, we will send a Full
Registration certificate to the dog's owner.
