    probably a puppy mill registry.


    The reputable North American registries are the american kennel club (AKC), the canadian kennel club (CKC) and the united kennel club (UKC). There is also the Continental Kennel Club that also uses CKC, but they again, will register anything for a fee.

    The American Pet Registry is basically and unfortunately a way to sound credible. They register anyone, any breed any mix.

    Wow, Did not know their were so many registry's :suspious:. Her other dogs are registered with the AKC and just this pup is registered with APRI, I really like the pup, she's 1.5 yrs old. Breeder told me she's good with kids and other dogs and sent some pics out to me. I will be meeting them this weekend to see if all is sound. Thought maybe an older pup before a younger one.

    Thanks so much for the info.

    There are, but as mentioned only a few are reputable. Personally I would run a mile from any breeder registered with a "pet" registry as it says a lot about their intentions.

    Do you know why the breeder wants to rehome her?

    Yeah, her quote was " did not fit our standard for breeding"! Not sure what that meant though.

    Thanks for all who replied, I really appreciate it!
