REGISTRATION FOR YOUR PURE BRED DOGO ARGENTINO!
Why should you be careful about your new puppy's registration?
Because your Dogo Aregntino puppy is going to be a member of your family for 10-17 years or so & this being a large investment! You must be sure that your puppy is registered with a legitimate registry otherwise you will have no proof of how your puppy was bred or even that he/she is a purebred Dogo Argentino.
UKC is the largest & oldest Kennel Club in America that accepts the Dogo Argentino breed for normal registration. The AKC (American Kennel Club) is the only Kennel Club in America that is larger than UKC. The AKC does not accept the Dogo Argentino breed for normal registration for the pure and simple fact that the number of Dogo Argentinos asking for registration is not high enough for them to go out of their way.
The Dogo Argentino Breed is an FCI (Federacion Cynologique International) recognized dog breed. The FCI is "The World Canine Organization". Through FCI the greatest dogs from all over the world unite and show against each other achieving Champion titles in Multiple countries, World Champion & International Champion titles etc... America is one of the very few countries that is not a partner country with FCI, therefore the nearest FCI partner is FCPR (Federacion Canofila De Puerto Rico) / FCPR is located in Puerto Rico which is actually considered part of America. The Dogo Argentino breed originated in Argentina. The acceptable registry in Argentina is "FCA" the "FEDERACION CINOLOGICA ARGENTINA". This is basically the FCI partner of the Argentina country.
*Here at Legend Dogos we register with the UKC (United Kennel Club) & dually with FCI (Federacion Cynologique International). We show & breed in UKC because it is the largest registry in America that accepts the dogo Argentino breed .
* PLEASE BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT REGISTRATION WHEN LOOKING FOR A DOGO ARGENTINO PUPPY*
Many basically fake registries try to copy real kennel registry's so they can make money from dog registrations by registering dogs without valid proof of being purebred. Breeders/ puppy millers trying to sell low class, no pedigree or mixed bred Dalmatian mixes or low class Dogo mixes etc are in a hurry to register with such registries to try & make their puppies look legitimate.
