Hello I have purchased a pug and his mom has papers and dad does not. If I plan on entering him into shows he has to be registered right? I had planned on having him as a family companion but the little terd is so smart I believe he can be taught many cool things to show off!! Can he still be papered only if one parent is?
Unfortunately, if your dog has an unregistered parent, unless that parent is registreable, you cannot register your puppy. If you want to show him, he also has to be registered, Since I live in Canada, and know the CKC rules best, that's how it's done here anyway. I know there are a bunch of shabby registers, but I don't think their registration papers are worth the paper they're written on. Someone correct me if I'm wrong. For all I know you can register your dog with the Contintal Kennel club, but I don't know if there are shows that reconize that registry.There are a few other registries like that, but I don't know anything about them.
