|To Whom it May
Concern: Could you please send me some information on how to
go about registering purebred Pomeranians with your kennel? A
friend told me that they had registered a Pomeranian with you. I
was just curious of your charges to register a dog. I might be
interested in registering several Pomeranian dogs, if possible.
Sherri Clark, Clarkson, Kentucky
Dear Sherri, The registration fee for
an individual dog registration is $(see application). Applications are on the
way. Write if you have questions. American Purebred Registry is
a pedigree record keeping agency that issues certificates of
registration with our company. We are no longer a kennel and
have never been a club. We felt that raising or showing dogs
would be a conflict of interest with the goals of American
Purebred Registry to serve the public, and some people might
deem it self serving.
GREETINGS; Please send me a handful
of litter registration application blanks as well as
single registration application blanks, as I have several
purebred, good quality dogs I hope to have registered and bred
before long. I also have some fellow dog owners with purebred
dogs of quality who have lost or been denied registration papers
due to failing to meet expiration deadline with other
registries. I have had luck with your registry in the past, and
the record keeping and paperwork on each individual sure does
make it easier to keep up with whatís going on and who went
where. Thank you very much for this alternative. Vaughn Rulo,
Lick Creek Kennel Fox, Arkansas
Dear Vaughn, Thanks for all
the compliments, our only job is to help you. We werenít sure
how many a handful is, so we sent you six applications in
todayís mail, if you need more, let us know. Our applications
never expire, or have deadlines, you can even photocopy our
applications if you need to. If we can help you in any way, just
write. (Note to those of you who might have old blank
applications on hand: Our registration fee changed to $(see
January of 1995.)
Dear Sirs, I saw your ad and
have several questions to ask. I also want more information. I
have a rottie female, & I got her from a friend who had
neighbors who abandoned her when they moved out of state. Since
she couldn't keep her, she called me, I have a nice place with
two acres. I am talking with the former owner's neighbor... They
had told her the dog was AKC registered and her name was
"Maragna". I'm not sure of the spelling of her name or
who her parent's were, all I know is she eight years old, but
this is all I know of her history. I call her
"Maggie", she is very sweet and well behaved and
spoiled rotten. I guess I am trying to make up for her past
unhappiness with her former owners. If I can get her papers, I'd
like to breed her. I've been told she's had two beautiful
litters of puppies in the past. I also have a chihuahua who
tries to make woopie with her. He is AKC registered, and I have
his papers. I got an idea of what the puppies would look like if
he did get her pregnant, and figured they might look something
like a minature pinscher or at least I hoped they would, or in
other words a miniature rottweiler. It would be nice to start a
new breed, I'd probably call them Rotthuahuas. Anyway it's an
idea I was thinking about. If you can offer any help as to how I
can get my rotties papers, I'd appreciate it. Sincerely & Respectfully,
C. Reese, Massachusettes
|Dear Ms. Reese, I know that you are
anxious to solve Maggie's registration problem, but your letter
raises some serious issues. Please do not allow your chihuahua
to breed with the rottweiler! In spite of the size
difference, where there is a will, there is a way. This will not
make miniature pinschers, only more mixed breed puppies to add
to the growing number. Miniature Pinschers were developed over
years and years, they did not just pop up in someone's backyard.
Most new breeds are not new breeds at all, but a working dog in
a specific region of the world that has been bred for
generations as a helpmate to man, and just recently noticed by
the modern world. It is our suggestion that you remain true to
your wish for Maggie's continued happiness and have her spayed.
We are sending you an application for Maggie, so keep trying to
find more info on her background. We will NOT register any pups
from her and any other breed of dog except a registered
APR; I am eventually going to
have all my cats (about 60) double registered and some triple
registered (TICA, CFA & APR) before I am finished!! I am
slowly sending these into you to have all my breeders APR.
Thanks for your time. Patty Bridges, Pollock, Texas
Dear Patty; Wow, judging from the
photocopies of registration certificates you sent in, you must
have some neat cats! How about writing an article for a future
SPOTLIGHT section about on the rare breeds you raise?
APR; I am very much
interested in the information you are offering on registering my
unregistered Springer Spaniel. By all rights he should be
(registered) though no fault of my own. (Another registry)
claims they never received my paperwork. It was too late by the
time I was told to redo it and pay another (fee) to some one for
nothing but another run around. You bet Iím mad. Hope you can
help. He deserves to be included in his family tree. There is no
value in breeding puppies without papers. I can be reached here
24 hours a day. Leslie Moffitt, Paradise, California
Dear Leslie; An application is on the
way to register your Springer Spaniel. Donít forget to send us
a photocopy of any paperwork you might have from another agency
to help us trace his pedigree. This should solve your
APR; Please send me
information on registering full-blooded, unregistered dogs. I
wasnít able to register my Yorkshire Terrier because I waited
a month too long and they wouldnít do it. Jane Hensley,
Dear Jane, Most of the letters we
receive are practically carbon copies of yours. I wonder how
often this happens? APR was created years ago to recognize
purebreds whose registration was lost or canceled due to
unfortunate circumstances and return to them the respect that
they deserve. Your application is in the mail, and thank you for
|Wow, What service -
(I) got papers (back) one week from the day I sent them. Mae Hillson,
San Antonio, Texas
Dear Mae; We try hard to get your
registration papers back to you as quick as we can. However,
sometimes we get swamped with registration applications so allow
30 days to receive your paperwork from us.
To whom it may concern: I
have a purebred Rottweiler that I would like to have registered.
The lady I purchased her from has recently moved here from
Germany. I saw the ad for puppies and she said that this was
unexpected at this time. She has the parents to my puppy and
gave me copies of their registration papers so I could register
Brandy if I wanted to. This was her females first litter and was
unsure how to go about registering the pups. Please send info
and registration form so that I can register Brandy. Thank you.
Patricia Denes, Sanford, Florida
Dear Patricia, Judging from the info in
your letter, I guess the sire and dam have German registration
papers. We will be glad to register Brandy, just fill out the
form and send a copy of the German papers.
Registry: I am writing to find out if I may cross register
two Himalayans which are now registered with CFA with your
American Purebred Registry. I have other cats registered with
you and I purchased two new ones and I would like them to be
registered the same as my other pets. Rebecca Fitzsimmons,
Dear Rebecca, Yes, you can double
register your Himalayans with us. Applications are in the mail.
How prestigious to have your darling Himalayans double
registered! More and more people are doing this.
Dear Sirs, Please send me
info and an application for registration. I have 2 Peke-a-poo
males, 1 Husky male and 1 female Shar-Pei, all of which are
purebred animals, but unfortunately previous owners didnít
care enough to have the papers prepared for the dogs. I am
unsure if papers can be prepared for any of the above, but I
sure want to try. Thank you. Mrs. T. Hostetler, Glade Mt.
Kennel, Rural Retreat, Virginia
Dear Mrs. Hostetler, I am sending you
applications for the Husky and the Shar-Pei. I am sorry but we
are unable to register the Peke-a-poos as they are a cross
between Pekingese and a Poodle and we do not register
Dear Sir/Madam, I wish to
have information regarding the registration of purebred cats.
Please send to me as soon as possible by air mail. Linda L.
Galloway, The University of Hong Kong, Department of Anatomy
Dear Sir, In my issue of DOG
FANCY you advertised free information/application on
registration papers for unregistered purebred, full-blooded
dogs. I am a Malaysian, I would like to know how could I get a
copy of this free info/application. Dan Swa Hau, Johor, Malaysia
I have an AKC registered male
collie, but the female is not registered. She was out of a
litter from a registered male and a purebred female. I have kept
two of the pups and am very interested in this information.

"Flash" the German Shepherd and "BO"
the English Bull Dog Sent in By: Robert Disheroon, Rainsville,
This is "Flash" The German
Shepherd and "Bo" The English Bulldog. They both
worked in our dog act, an educational act for schools, etc.
Also, Flash's son and grandson worked in the act. From the early
50's to the middle 70's, worked the dogs in movies in
California. Also had some of our dogs in Carrol O'Conner's
"In The Heat of The Night." Shot near Atlanta, where
we had our dog training and boarding kennels for 40 years. My
dad, Ray Disheroon worked with the dogs all his life, and I have
just now retired. We raised German Shepards, Pomeranians and
wolves, as well as McCaws, and many other animals. We now have a
pet cow, that is a big baby. Will give you a kiss on command,
she's 1 year old, weighs over 600 lbs.
