As you alluded, an altered dog can only get "limited" registration (no participation in conformation competitions). So I think the poll would be more informative if it had three selections - none, limited. and full registration.
When we purchased Ricky, he was "intact" with the agreement that we would have him neutered at about 1 y.o. (which we did). Therefore when we purchased him, he had full registration. He had participated in a number of AKC puppy class conformation competitions and had several ribbons to his credit. When we got him neutered, the breeder and previous owner refused to help us get limited registration, so I had to do it on our own. But that's a distant memory now. Ricky has continued to compete in AKC Obedience and is still winning ribbons.
