I just bought my Basenji puppy Ayo a few weeks ago, and his litter is registered with America's Pet Registry. I live in Dominican Republic and I;ve been told that they only register foreign dogs that are registered with the American Kennel Club. Can I register him with the American Kennel Club if he has Americas Pet Registry???
No, APRI is a registry that was started by breeders who did not want to follow AKC's rules for registering litters most often their requirement to have DNA profiles for frequently used sires or who had their AKC privileges suspended. APRI dogs are not recognized by AKC.
Because most people do not care if their "papers" are from a valid registry and will pay more from puppies when they are advertised as "registered" even though the organization is not a valid one because they don't know the difference and by the time they do the breeder has their money.
yeah, I know, and I most likely would not have shown, because i never have, but its just frustrating to know that I cant. He has champion bloodlines in both his mother pedigree and his fathers, with akc but …. yeah. I didnt think it mattered because I was going to register him here in the DR and not in the states. It turns out that they probably wont register him here unless he is akc.
It doesnt matter that much to me.
Please give all the pedigree information to Sally Wallis who takes care of the Basenji Pedigree Database as it is important to have all Basenjis in it especially the non AKC registered ones. Her e-mail address is email@example.com.

Who is the breeder of your dog and the sire and dam? I am curious because I have rescued a couple of APRI registered dogs.
I bought him from George and Melissa Howell in Kansas City, MO. They arent "breeders" they just had one litter at home. I will send Sally an email whith the sire and dams info. I havent registered my puppy Ayo yet.
Please note that one who has a litter is a breeder, whether they want to be called that or not.
The reason it was mentioned to send Sally Wallis the information is because that litter can never be picked up through the AKC stud books since the dam is not AKC registered. Sally has built a massive basenji pedigree database and it has been helpful beyond years when looking up pedigrees of rescue dogs, as well as research for breeders.
Do you mind sharing the full names of the sire and dam with us?
Best of luck with your new little one!
