AKC Registration for our Havanese and the Breeder
First and foremost, I'd like to thank everyone on this board as I have found so much informative info regarding the Havanese. I wish I had seen this forum prior to purchasing Cody. Don't get me wrong, I love Cody dearly and he is absolutely my special guy.
I had researched about purchaseing before getting Cody but perhaps I didn't research enough. I only want to get a puppy who is AKC registerable. I pruchased Cody from someone in New Jersey. When I had purchased cody I was told that the was AKC registerable and the contract states it as well. I purchased him from a woman in New Jersy who said it was an "Oops pregancy"... Looking back I'm thinking if they had no intension of breeding the dogs would have been neutered or spaded. Any way, when I pruchase him, she said she didn't have the papers for registration at the time and was working on the process. Not realizing what the process to Register AKC was needed, I didn't realize that this would later be a problem. When purchasing cody, I asked for a copy of papers for the parents registration since I hadn't had Cody reg. papers Father registered through CKc (Canada) and Mother AKC in US. I was told that the GrandFather is champion in Canada. 3 Months past and I did not receive the papers for AKC Reigstration. NJ Breeder said that the father who is CKC reigstered has to get registered AKC in US first and it has not yet been complete. I never heard back from her. I had contacted this woman numerous times since June, 2008 via email and phone and she never responds to my call or emails.
Anyone have any idea what I can do? Her contract specifically stated AKC registerable.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
