Registration

Hello,
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.

Oh my… So, I will propbably not be able to get him registered here in the Dominican Republic! I dont understand what the point of having a registry is if it is not valid.

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.

Enjoy your pup Ayo for the wonderful pet that he is. Registry is important if you plan to show, then possibly breed. For a pet, it is not a big deal. All mine are rescues, only one is actually registered, but I love them all the same.

I would suggest highly that you consider doing the DNA test for Fanconi. It is really important for you and the long term for your Basenji. You can learn about the test at www.basenjihealth.org

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.

I would still suggest that you have him DNA'ed for Fanconi for your own peace of mind

Oh yes. Definetly. I will have him tested. The people I bought him from told me that he was tested clear. But I wil have him tested anyway.

If he was tested then he would have an OFA listing. All tested dogs are listed on the OFA site.

I spoke with the breeder and she is sending me the info on the test.

Again, if not on the OFA site, then it was not done… hopefully for you it was

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 sally.wallis@btopenworld.com.

The website is http://www.pedigrees.zandebasenjis.com/search.html

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 just received all the info. The ofa number and everything for the sire and the dam. The sire is clear and the dam is "at risk". What information do you want me to send you. The pedigree registration numbers?

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!

The sire's name is Beni Kukukut of Delouise and the Dam's name is Jubilee Ruwa Joy

Do you know his dam's parents' names?

I just searched the sire and the dam in the OFA database and did not get any results. Did you verify for yourself on the OFA site?

Yes I checked on the OFA site under Check Status of Existing Order
