Default No papers and this is the best GSD

It pains me that this dog of mine has no papers to akc him "official" If anyone knows how I can make him "oficial" please email me to buchanan . greg AT gmail dot therest. He is one year old and has a great 'tude, and he is right at 100 lbs. (1 year old) I went to the yearly dog day and he was the attention getter, the other shepherds couldn't compare. What can I do???

I don't really understand what you are trying to ask.

What a lovely dog. He looks very happy. He doesn't need papers to make him official unless you plan to show him in conformation or breed him.

get papers for him so I can breed him. He is by far the best GSD. I know he is mine, but look at him, he is the best one, and as far as the AKC see's, he is a mutt...

Me either. Are you trying to find out how to replace his registration papers? Or was he never registered and you want to have him AKC registered?

ETA: Nevermind.

I bought him from people that don't keep up with papers... I got him in centerpoint (Birmingham) area of Alabama.

What makes him the best GSD? What does he have to offer to the German Shepherd breed? Have you had his hips checked?What kind of titles does he have?Has he been test for other health issues?Are you willing to take back any of his offspring at anytime no matter what? Are you going to offer a guarantee?Are you willing to keep in contact with buyers if they have any issues with their puppies? Are you going to make sure his offspring don't end up in shelters or rescues? Why are you breeding?

We all think our dogs are the best. I think my dogs are the best. But that is NOT a reason they should be bred. AKC papers mean nothing. The only thing they mean is that the dog is a purebred. Nothing else.

I'm not yet b breeding him, but look at the boy, he's perfect. I feel it would be an injustice not to breed him.

So? Yes he is a nice looking GSD, but looks are NOT the only reason you should be breeding him. No, it wouldn't be an injustice.

If I were looking for a puppy. I would rather have a ugly GSD that was healthy, smart, great temperament, and great trainability, than a pretty one that is unhealthy, behavioral issues.

If both his parents are AKC registered then his litter could be registered. And if his litter is registered, then he and his littermates can be registered. But if the litter wasn't registered because one or both parents weren't registered, then there's nothing you can do.

And no, it is not an injustice to not breed every good looking dog out there, no matter how much we love them. We all think our dogs are "the best", but most of them are not truly breeding material.

If you think he's a great representative of the breed why don't you go back the people you bought him from and get another dog from them. Are they still breeding the parents? A puppy out of him would only have half his genes.
