I bought a young dog from a very well known breeder, many of you old-timers would know them. Got the dog last September and despite numerous phone calls, emails etc I still do not have papers. The dog is now a year old. I had planned to run this dog in derbies but with the dog not being registered I put the brakes on training. I am and will always be a handshake kind of person so there was no contract. Yes, I know that I take a chance on getting burned that way, but I am fine with that. All will stand before God in the end. I have been burned very few times in my life living this philosophy and this seems to be one of those times. I am not complaining. Just want to know from people who have been there, what my best recourse is. Thanks.
