Canine registry organizations are free to set their own standards. I remember when the choices were either AKC or Not Registered. Other organizations arose out of the recognition that the AKC requirements were arbitrarily restrictive and that many established breeds of merit were not recognized by the AKC. So there are now many breed registries each with its own set of rules. No matter which registry we look at it we need to understand that none of them can guarantee the health or condition of your puppy. There are physically solid, healthy puppies that are not registered with any group and there are puppies registered with highly regarded groups that are physically unsound. Rely heavily on your veterinarians assessment of your puppy when making decisions about breeding.
