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.

But you could apply for your dog to be registered in PAL (Purebred Alternative Listing) for purebred dogs with one or no registered parents.

How can i tell if my pitbull puppy is purebred?

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.

How do you get papers for your dog?

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.

How much pit bulls are woth?

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.

Your dog has no papers and you want some how do you get them?

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.).
