To be eligible for registration, a litter must be the result of a mating between an AKC-registered sire and an AKC-registered dam of the same breed. If a sire or dam of a litter is a foreign-born dog, registered with an acceptable foreign registry, you must apply for the individual AKC registration of the foreign dog before the litter can be registered.
Import DNA requirement: All imported dogs (male or female) registered on or after March 1, 2006 require AKC DNA profiling prior to the registration of their first AKC-registered litter.
Litters born outside of the United States are not eligible for AKC registration.
To register a litter out of a dam imported in whelp, see AKC's Special Registry Services section for more information.
