Where it's all about: Drive, Desire, Determination and Companionship!

Limited v/s Full Registration

We sell most of our puppies on AKC limited registration which is the perfect registration if you are just looking for a great companion and have no plans of showing or breeding. We will allow some of our puppies registration to be changed from limited to full at anytime with a fee.

We will sell some exceptional puppies on full registration with show or breeding rights only to approved homes and breeders. We care about our dogs and our pedigrees as well as all of the puppies that leave our possession. If you are seeking a companion for breeding our showing, please let me know ahead of time so we can discuss which puppy you are interested in. 



From the AKC website regarding these registrations:

Limited Registration means that the dog is registered but no litters produced by that dog are eligible for registration.

A dog registered with an AKC Limited Registration shall be ineligible to be entered in a breed competition in a licensed or member dog show. It is eligible, however, to be entered in any other licensed or member event. These events include: Obedience, Tracking, Field Trials, Hunting Tests, Herding, Lure Coursing, Agility and Earthdog.

Limited Registration helps breeders protect their breeding programs

Limited Registration can be changed to Full Registration only by the litter owner(s). The litter owner(s) will need to obtain the Application to Revoke Limited Status. That form will then need to be completed and sent to our Raleigh address with the processing fee. After processing, we will send a Full Registration certificate to the dog's owner
