While having AKC papers obviously doesn't mean your dog is well-bred, NOT having papers of any kind is a pretty good indicator that they're not exactly the product of a well-run, well-thought-out breeding program.

Pro's- Basically guarantees your dog is purebred. Eligibility for shows, etc.
Con's- there aren't, except for people who laud their dogs as being "AKC registered" like it's an achievement.
