Daniel, is your friend in Canada?
In Canada it is illegal to sell a dog as "Purebred" with no registration papers. It is federal law that all animals sold as "Purebred" have to have proper registration papers at no additional charge to the purchaser.
Quote from the CKC Rules of finding a Reputable Breeder
"Confirm CKC registration of the parents, the litter and the puppy you are
about to purchase
This is not a matter of choice - this is the law in Canada, as required under the Animal
Pedigree Act. Any breeder selling a dog as purebred must register the dog and provide the
new owner with the registration certificate within six months of the date of sale. In order for
the puppy to be registered, the dog's parents and the emanating litter must also be
registered. A reputable breeder will be more than willing to provide this information. If you
have any doubts, ask the breeder for a copy of the Certificate of Registration of Litter
previously issued by CKC. It is the responsibility of the breeder to forward the application
papers to CKC and pay for the initial registration and transfer of the dog into your name.
The cost to a member breeder is approximately $25.00. Upon receiving the breeder's
applications, it takes CKC about 10 days to process the applications and send the certificate
of registration back to the breeder. The breeder must then send the certificate to you, as
the new owner of the puppy. Obtaining official papers is the responsibility of the seller, not
the buyer. Don't accept the responsibility of sending in the applications or paying for them.
• The breeder hands you the registration application papers and tells you to
send them in with the required fees.
• The breeder offers you the purebred dog at one price with papers and at
another price without papers."
