Suzi, Rarely does a breeder know if a pup has show potential until they grow up a bit and that is how some very good breeders have an older pup for sale. Sometimes they limit the reg. because they don't want some one breeding. If you are a first time buyer wanting to show and have never done it with any dog, there are a few breeders who will give you a chance, but your contract may say that you have to show and earn their title before they will sign off and take their name off as part owner or you have to spay if intend to keep the dog. If you have a show contract and you do not put your dog in conformation classes and start going out they will ask for the dog back. Have you tried talking to the breeder? On a limited Reg. you can still do all the sports and fun things, just not conformation and you can't breed AKC puppies.
