Can i find a blood experiment to prove my dogs purity?
if so, can i use that test to register him with the AKC, he's a black lab, but didn't hold papers but both parents looked pure n owners say they r pure breed.
You can get your dogs DNA tested but if the parents dont enjoy papers you are out of luckand can not register your dog with the akc.
*ugh maybe I can read your mind. You said you saw the parents and the owners "said" they were pure...it wouldn't taken much shot to ask to see the papers! Golly, if ya wanted a paperd puppy get one from registered parents from a reputable breeder.
Nope. It's papers or nil. Blood tests can't prove breed purity.
But what does it matter, really? Your dog wouldn't be any better with papers than he is already. Just delight in your dog, and don't worry about how pure his breed is.
You can go on the AKC site, click on "registration" , then look on toward the bottom right side of the page for rules and regulations for further information on their programs.
I hope this helps.
Those breed-ID tests will NOT guarantee that your dog is a purebred.. they may come back stating that your dog is "mostly lab, next to no other breeds detected" or something along that lines.. they just wont put a guarantee on being purebred or not. AKC does not accept these test for registration either.
The DNA tests offered by AKC are only for simply paternity testing.. it wont get your dog an AKC registration either.
Both parents hold to be fully AKC registered, the breeder then registers the litter, and gives the owner the registration papers.. that's the ONLY way to gain AKC registration.
If you get him neutered, you can apply for an ILP/PAL listing thru the AKC tho.
Nope. Both parent's need to be registered, and the breeder have to register the litter before you can register your dog.
You can get an ILP/PAL registration through the AKC, that will allow him to enter all events bar conformation. He has to be neutered first though.
