We got our wgsd from a couple in the country. Her dogs were full breed but she didn't pay to register them so our pup didn't come with papers. Is there a way to get papers for her?

No. The sire and dam must be registered and then the litter would have to be registered by the breeder.

Why do you want papers? If it's to compete in any sort of performance events you can get ILP/PAL papers from AKC and those will allow her to compete as a GSD. They are for performance entries only, not full AKC papers, but they will certainly suffice if that's why you want papers. Dogs do have to be spayed/neutered in order to get them.

Do her own dogs have papers? If they are not both registered, your pup cannot have full registration either. If they are white, my guess is that they would be registered with the UKC if you're in the United States.

If the parents don't have papers, you can at least get limited registration for your pup. You can send in photos and get papers for a Purebred Alternative Listing with the AKC or UKC once she is spayed. This allows you to compete in sports like obedience and agility to earn titles, but your dog will not be eligible for breeding.

Beware of "papers" from organizations like the ACA and CKC (Continental Kennel Club). They are a waste of your time and money.
