If you bought your dog from a reputable breeder who had papers on the bitch and sire, they should have given you papers stating the dog's parents' names which you would send to the United Kennel Club or/and the American Dog Breeders' Association with a fee in order to register your puppy with whatever name you choose. If your dog's parents aren't both registered, he cannot be either. In short, the answer to the question is - contact the person/organization you got your animal from and speak with them about registration papers.


Actually, the AKC does not recognize the "American Pitbull" as a specific breed. It does recognize the Staffordshire Bull Terrier--but that is a distinct breed. There are several "bully breeds" in the AKC, however this concept we have now of the "pitbull" is largely a name created by the public (and the press) which combines any and all dogs with the bull terrier characteristics. Well bred (by a responsible breeder) and well trained and socialized, these dogs make wonderful companions, but are not recommended for the first time dog owner as they require experience and sound leadership--but not brutality. They are among the most intelligent, sensitive and loyal of companions, but because they are such a powerful group of dogs, the owners are obligated to acquire, socialize and train them responsibly.

I believe you can. Contact either one of the clubs that they are registered through and they should be able to tell you.

I'm going to answer this based on AKC (American Kennel Club) because I don't know how UKC or other Kennel Clubs does this. The answer is no, not in the same way. But you could apply for your dog to be registered in PAL (Purebred Alternative Listing) for purebred dogs with one or no registered parents.

Both parents must be registered with the AKC or an acceptable foreign registry

When you purchased your Pitbull you should have received papers from the breeder and if you didn't then ask for them. If you have the papers and just want a copy then scan it or take it to an office supply store such as Staples or Office Depot and get copies.

Without registration papers from an honest, reputable breeder, you will never be able to tell for certain. I would also like to add that there is no such thing as a purebred "pitbull." The closest breed would be the American Pit Bull Terrier, which would have registration papers from the UKC or the ADBA.

Pedigree papers are given to puppies after they have been Kennel Club registered by their breeder. Puppies can only be registered if they are 100% pure-bred, are a recognised breed and if both of their parents were also Kennel Club registered. If you were not given pedigree papers by the breeder when you bought your Dog then it is unlikely that your Dog is Kennel Club registered and so it wouldn't be able to get papers. If your Dog is Kennel Club registered but you weren't given or lost the papers, for a fee you can usually contact the Kennel Club that your Dog is registered with and get a new copy.

The most valuable Pitbulls are the ones recognized as American Bullys. These have the top foundation bloodlines such as Razors Edge, Gotti, Remy, Ultimate Blues, and now Dax line. The most important thing to have a more valuable pitbull is UKC United Kennel Club papers. This gives the pitbull the most value. With UKC papers you can also dual register many of the other American Bully registries such as ABKC American Bully Kennel Club, UBKC United Bully Kennel Club. etc. With the UKC papers and top American Bully bloodlines you could get anywhere from $1500 to $3500 for your Pitbull puppy.

It should be registered with the AKC (American Kennel Club) and have registration papers showing who the sire and dam are, date of birth of the dog etc. The papers must come from the AKC.

France has the best law about pitbulls. As long as you have papers that state it is a pure breed pitbull, the dog is allowed. Any other dog that resembles a mix with a pitbull and other dog, is to be destroyed.

Contact The American Kennel Club for litter papers. They will have all the info you need and will send a packet as long as your dalmatians are registered purebreds.

Only pedigree/purebred dogs have papers, and the dog must be registered with a Kennel Club e.g. American Kennel Club, English Kennel Club. Not all purebreds have papers either, a puppy can only have papers if BOTH of it's parents themselves had pedigree papers. Unless your dog had two purebred parents of the same breed that each had pedigree papers, then you cannot get papers for your dog. Kennel Club registration papers and pedigree certificates should be given to you by the breeder if your dog is pedigree/Kennel Club registered. Papers cannot be purchased and so it is not likely that you will be able to retrieve them (if the breeder forgot to give you them etc.).

If you registered your dog in your name, you can easily get a copy of its registration papers. Contact the kennel club where your dog is registered and request a copy. You will probably have to pay a fee to get a copy. If he is registered in someone else's name, that person will have to make the request.

You can use 'registered mail' when sending the papers after your spouse received the summons and the papers he needs to sign. Registered mail means he has to personally sign for it and there will be a record at the post office.

You will have a great pitbull dog. Not being registered to any specif bloodline does not mean your dog will not have the chacteritics to be a good dog. Anyways you dont need to show papers everytime your dog becomes the center of atention.

You can try to submit a DNA test if you know who the sire and dam are. If the foal was at any point registered they would charge a fee and give you papers. If however the foal was not registered and if either of the parents are not registered the foal will not be accepted for registration as DNA proof is required.

Unfortunately, there is no way to tell that a dog is a purebred without papers. Even dogs that bear resemblence to a pure pitbull might be mixed breeds of some kind.

You can't just register any puppy. It has to be born from registered parents and then when you get the puppy the person you got it from will give you the papers to send in to get it registered.

Pitbulls can be purchased from a breeder with the proper papers for a fee. They can also be saved and rescued from a homeless shelter which is cheaper.

Garnishment papers can be served in several ways. They can be sent by registered mail, delivered by a process server or by a sheriff's deputy.
