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.

AKC frowns on selling a dog without papers or some kind of bill of sale saying there will be no papers. If you received nothing, and this is a well known breeder, I would find the wording at AKC.org and send a registered letter saying you will turn this over to AKC if ou don't get your papers. If they are breeding , this is too big a risk to lose AKC priviledges. If you get no response, I would contact AKC. I know for a fact they do get involved sometimes, and I would say you bought the dog for competition.

And couldn't hurt to mention court proceedings , small claims or otherwise , will commence immediately if there is no response within seven days.

This happened to me many years ago with my Bobbie Sox. Came to find out the owner of the bitch never paid the stud fee. Contacted local law enforcement and discovered the breeder had committed fraud as he delivered the puppy to me and told me the litter registration was in the mail from AKC. With law enforcements help as well as some Lab breeders help the wheel slowely turned. I did get my papers as did the other owners who had puppies from the litter.

If the person is well known they sure wouldn't want their name drug through the mud.

If you can't get a hold of the breeder You might try to get in touch with the stud owner. If they aren't the same people. Sometimes they can clear up questions, the breeder has to wait for the stud owner to to approve the litter. If somethings going on btw those two parties papers can be delayed, or never issued.
