The whole point of a limited registration is to protect dogs so that they do not land as breeding stock. I am not a fan of a limited registration. It costs just as much to breed, whelp, and raise a pet puppy as it does to raise a show prospect/breeding prospect. But if for some reason you cut the price of a puppy on a limited registration, or you feel for some reason, example would be a trial breeding, maybe an inbreeding that you did to find what recessive genes are present, but you do not want those puppies bred. Or if the dog has some fault, minor or major, like a white or blue coat, and you do not want that puppy bred.
There are people out there that will for the sake of color alone, pandas, blues, livers, and perhaps whites, though they are relatively common, will breed a dog without consideration of all else. In the past a breeder would simply cull such a puppy, meaning kill it right at birth. Other breeders would give the puppy without papers. But we have a such thing as a limited registration so that these dogs are not used soley to forward a fault.
Often the people get the dogs with a limited registration for a fraction of the cost. And then they turn around and register it with UKC and breed away. It is not like they need to get titles or championship points, or a breed survey to breed in the UKC. So it is not like anyone is looking at the dog and saying, oh it has this major fault, it should not be bred, sorry.
I guess maybe breeders should just cull the puppies they feel should not be bred from the get go. Or speuter them at eight weeks of age. Or sell them without any papers.
