AKC Registration is your proof that the puppy you are buying is a purebred dog. It is a starting place for all puppy buyers who want a purebred dog. A purebred dog is eligible for AKC registration if its litter has been registered. When you purchase a dog said to be AKC-registrable or comes with "papers" you should get an individual Dog Registration Application from the seller. Once the application has been completed, you should submit it to the AKC with the proper fee.

See examples of PAPERS below.
Those who purchase a basset hound from us receive the registration application and a check made out to the AKC for the fee plus the stamped envelope to mail it in. We want all our dogs to be fully registered with the AKC.

You need to be aware that there many unscrupolas people on the Internet today posing as breeders and take money from unsuspecting people with no intent to send them a puppy. Others simply want your money. They could care less what happens to your puppy once they have your money.
Please check out our page on Responsible Breeders before you even start contacting breeders.
