Default pedigree?

I just need to know more info on what is pedigree? What is it about? What is its use? Why is it important? Why do dogs need it? Why do people care about it much here? How do you create it?

it's the family tree/blood line. tells the background of a dog. you don't need to know it but it's nice to know and useful if you looking for a dog for a specific job. some pedigrees consistently produce better dogs for one or more jobs than another.

my dogs were from a BYB. no pedigree. that's fine 'cause they are just pets and their only job is to make me happy. i however have no clue when medical conditions are common in their blood line.

since my dogs don't have a documented pedigree i never really cared to learn much about them. i'm sure an expert will be here shortly and can give more specifics.

Since dogs can't give their own family history we rely on pedigrees to tell us their genetic story. You can trace their relatives, look up health information, see their accomplishments. Breeders use them to help match their dogs to the best mate possible

Not to mention without a registered pedigree from a reputable kennel club there's no way to prove that the dog is a purebred in any way.

Is it possible to do a pedigree for my pup? Thought her father and mother have no pedigrees

sure if you plan on breeding and starting some kind of kennel and a reputable bloodline. start documenting and registering with every pedigree organization. egypt might even have some sort of organization there. maybe in a few generations you can start advertising you have a documented pedigree. there better be some really good expensive talented dogs in the line.

if you're like me, you just have family pets. so there really is no reason to go through all that.

unfortunately not .

from other posts , the sire and dam are part of a breeding farm to supply dogs for his pet shop?
back yard breeder ? puppy mill type?

for all you know the pup could be sired by a male different than the one you were shown -- one female , multiple sires?

his standards are different -- he may not even know what or who his dogs are , a long line of un documented "anonymous" dogs .

those dogs may be the result of breedings done for the sake of "it (breeding) has to be done anyway sooner or later" so any male to female is okay .

he didn't seem to have any qualms to offer a breeding of your dog to her father as a compensation for a colour that you were expecting.

scarfish is being sarcastic and not helpful at all.

The answer to your question is no. If the parents were not registered with a recognized kennel club, then you won't be able to register your dog either.

A pedigree is proves that a dog is purebred. Even though the parents LOOK pure-bred, without a pedigree it cannot be proven.

Perhaps the owner of the father and mother didn't register his dogs, but has some information about the grandparents? You could contact him and see if you can get that information.

But unless the parents were registered, you won't be able to register your puppy either.

why are saying these things?

i was being sarcastic but still helping. there is no point registering a dog that is already your pet that you don't plan on breeding. not to just satisfy anyone who is questioning about your dog's authenticity. it's his pet, his GSD, if anyone doesn't like it they can move on. i would be annoyed if anyone actually asked for my dogs pedigree IRL. i would want to ask for their kid's pedigree and a paternity test for that matter.
