AKC Limited Registration

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.
