Special Registry Services

 

For the complete requirements for eligibility, please visit the Special Registry Services booklet on the Rules and Regulations page.

Dogs imported into the U.S. may be eligible for registration in the AKC Stud Book, provided:

  1. The imported dog is of a breed eligible for individual registration in the AKC Stud Book.
  2. The imported dog was registered in country of birth with a Foreign Registry Organization listed in Section IV of this pamphlet.
    Note: If the dog was imported to another foreign country before coming into the US we would require a copy of the pedigree from both the birth country and the interim country.
  3. The AKC application form is accompanied by a legible photocopy of a complete official three-generation Pedigree and certification from the Foreign Registry Organization. The dog must have an unrestricted registration.
    Note: The complete 3 generation pedigree would require names & numbers for all dogs listed. In the case that both parents are already AKC registered they may omit the pedigree, but must still submit a copy of the Registration Certificate.
  4. The AKC application and the foreign registration must reflect identical ownership.
  5. The dog has been positively and permanently identified (microchip or tattoo) prior to being registered.

The items listed below must be submitted for the AKC to consider registration (this information is also printed on the form):

  1. The properly completed application, signed in ink.
  2. The $100.00 registration fee, payable in U.S. funds -- do not send cash.
  3. A clear and legible photocopy of the original Certificate of Registration indicating the dog's registry and owner of record - do not send the original certificate.
  4. A clear and legible photocopy of the three-generation Certified Pedigree (or Export Pedigree, where applicable). If both the sire and dam of the dog identified on the application are AKC registered, print the AKC registration number of the sire and dam in the appropriate spaces on the front of the application. In this case, you may omit the copy of the Certified Pedigree. Do not send the original pedigree.
  5. All foreign dogs being registered with the AKC are required to have positive identification. This section of the application must be completed to show:
    1. the type of identification (tattoo, microchip, DNA profile),
    2. the identifying information and its location on the dog,
    3. the registry recording the identifying information. The identification may be done after the dog is in the United States, but prior to AKC registration.
  6. Two three-by-five-inch color photographs, providing close-up front and side views of the dog in a standing position, are required.

The Foreign application can be downloaded here:
