PAPERS IDENTIFICATION
_________________________________________________________________________________

When you buy a dog represented as ADR registrable, you should receive an ADR Dog Registration Application form properly filled out by the seller. When you complete your portion along with a picture of the dog and submit it with the proper fee, this form will enable you to register the dog. When the application has been processed, you will receive an ADR Registration Certificate.

Under ADR Rules, anyone person who sells dogs represented as ADR registrable, must maintain records that make it possible to give full identifying information with every dog delivered even though ADR "papers" are not yet available. Do not accept a promise of later identification.

The Rules and Regulations of the American Dog Registry Association, Inc. stipulate that whenever someone sells or delivers a dog registrable with ADR, the dog must be identified by providing the buyer with a properly completed ADR Dog Registration Application for a dog not yet individually registered or a properly completed ADR Registration Certificate for a registered dog. If neither of these is available, the person delivering or shipping the dog must furnish the person acquiring the dog with a bill of sale or written statement, signed by the seller, giving all of the identifying information listed below.


FOR A DOG NOT YET INDIVIDUALLY REGISTERED
_________________________________________________________________________________

VET verification letter of pure breed
Pictures of dog
Breed
Sex and color and markings
Date of birth
Litter number (when available)
Names of sire and dam
Name of breeder
Date sold or delivered


FOR A REGISTERED DOG BREED
_________________________________________________________________________________

Registered name
Registration number
Date sold or delivered

This identifying information must be supplied with the dog even though ADR papers are not yet available, and even to a person who takes the dog only for resale as an agent or on consignment, and the same information must be passed on by them when he disposes of it. When you do receive the properly completed ADR registration papers, verify the papers against your bill of sale to ensure that all the information is correct. Please be advised that a dog will not be registered or transferred without the proper ADR registration papers.

If you are buying a dog that is supposed to be registrable with the ADR you should realize it is your responsibility to obtain complete identification of the dog or you should not buy the dog. Failure to get ADR "registration papers" causes more grief for buyers of pure-bred registrable dogs than any other problem except sickness. It has long been common practice to explain the inability saying "ADR hasn't sent the papers yet."


ADR REGISTERED AND QUALITY
_________________________________________________________________________________

At ADR we urge all of our breeders to breed responsible making sure of no genetic or congenital defects. Currently, the American Dog Registry does not keep pedigree's and ancestors' lines. Hopefully, within the next few years we will be able to provide this service. ADR is a registry body. A registration certificate identifies the dog as the offspring of a known sire and dam, born on a known date. It in no way indicates the quality or state of health of the dog. Quality in the sense of "show quality" is determined by many factors including the dog's health, physical condition, ability to move and appearance. Breeders breeding show stock are trying to produce animals that closely resemble the description of perfection described in the breed standard. Many people breed their dogs with no concern for the qualitative demands of the breed standard. When this occurs repeatedly over several generations, the animals, while still purebred, can be of extremely low quality.
