|deep_blue||Thanks! I appreciate everyone's input. I'm going to call the breeder this week and speak with them about it as well. I don't know who put the name on the application. If it was the breeder I will probably leave it. If it was the previous owner.....I'll probably change it. I know nothing about AKC registration other than what I have read online. I really don't even have a real need for it as he is not going to be a working dog or competing, but something I always wanted to have done.|

people who don't know better have named pups with others kennel names, picking it out of further back in the pedigree because it "sounds nice".....I have seen dogs named Tiekerhook and Poraniziani Straze who were 3-5 generations from a dog in the pedigree from that kennel....
In any case - the AKC fees do go up to $100? $200 for a dog over a year old so get the papers sent in

If the breeder is concerned about what the Doug's registered name will be, he or she can (and should) register the pup themselves and the buyer can do a transfer of ownership. This ensures that the pup will have the name the breeder wants and that it can't be changed.

Yeah...some breeders don't give people input on what the dog's registered name is. The call name...anything they want, but the registered name should be what the breeder wants it to be. That way, the breeder can track the progress and titling of the dog if they want to.
If the name is just a companion name, no kennel attached to it, I'd just register online and change whatever I wanted.
I actually think that if you can get the breeder's information, you should contact them and let them know what's going on. You might get some very valuable information about your dog from them.

well - I personally don't feel like it is proper for someone to change the name if the breeders kennel name and litter letter is on the application.....
If it is a generic kind of companion name, then not so against it...
In any case get the registration done quickly as the price does go way up after a year old

Just register the dog online. It's simple and you can change the name to whatever you want. All you need is the PIN numbers that's on the registration form.

|Athena'sMom||I filled out all my dogs AKC paperwork via website. So regardless if the paper is filled out you can register online and enter in all the information with the name you choose and you as the first owner. The website walks you through the registration process.|

ok thanks for clarifying..
So it looks like the dog was "never" registered? You can always akc thru the PAL (alternate listing) ..If he's neutered/spayed. If you PAL register him, you can name him whatever you want.

|deep_blue||I don't believe the previous owner ever registered him. I still have the registration form that is mostly filled out but I don't think it has ever been sent in. I got him from a third party so I don't have contact with the previous owner but I can ask and find out.|
