liscence and registration

April 6th, 2004, 03:05 PM
I recently purchased a yorkie terrier about three months ago. The breeder promised that my registration papers would come in the mail approx. two weeks later. No liscence, no registration. I paid her a visit, but got no answer. I've been had!! Is it possible to register my darling on my own?

I would contact the American Kennel Association to ask them about the breeders accreditation or at least report them. I don't think you can register a dog yourself though unless you are a member of the association. Not sure about that though.

If it makes you feel any better, I didn't receive Oliver's papers until he was 8 months old. There can be mix ups at the time of registration and delays do happen. If you do not, however, receive a response from the breeder or if she/he cannot be found, then you may want to report to either the AKC or CKC (depending on where you are and who the dog is to be registered with).

Good luck to you!

Most often when the seller doesn't respond they don't have the answer you want and the worst part is you have the dog and they have your money.
When dealing with a reputable breeder they can supply you with the papers, with little delay. The goverments economic cuts have not affected the AKC yet.LOL

Like cmt said,it can take a while.I recieved mine 2 months later.But she did all the paperwork,not me.

How old is your Yorkie now?

Was this a responsible reputable breeder?Did you recieve a written health gaurentee?Where you put on a s/n contract?Does this breeder show his/her dogs?

Sorry for all the questions.But just trying to find out more about this breeder.

Here is a link on AKC Registration.

Check to see if the breeder is registered with the AKC
