Are the AKC registration numbers different for different breeds? is there a way I can look at an AKC number and tell what breed a dog is?

I don"t think so.

My Labs have SN & SR pre fixes. Must be something else. You could go to the OFA website and look up different breeds and check the pre fix letters and maybe come up with a range of letters that are confined to each breed.

I believe the first character indicates the group the dog belongs to ("S" for Sporting Group.) Using a letter as the second character just allows more available registration numbers compared to a digit.

If you go to the Store on AKC website, and request points and awards or research pedigree, put in the AKC number and it pulls up the dog's name, breed, date of birth.
