THE LIMITED REGISTER
Your puppy is registered with the Victorian Canine Council on the LIMITED REGISTER.
As Concerned Breeders, we have taken this step to try to curb indiscriminate breeding practices and to protect our Golden Retriever.
A dog registered on the
LIMITED REGISTER CANNOT
Be exhibited at a Dog Show or
Have any of its future puppies registered with the Canine Council
Compete in Official Obedience Trials
HOWEVER, if in the future (BUT BEFORE THE DOG IS THREE (3) YEARS OLD) you feel your dog is a potential show winner or would benefit the breed by producing puppies, it can be TRANSFERRED to the MAIN REGISTER (where these things are permitted) with the WRITTEN CONSENT OF THE BREEDER (this is a VCA CANINE COUNCIL REGULATION). Transfer fees to be paid by the Purchaser(s).
In order for consideration to be given by the breeders to transfer your puppy to the MAIN REGISTER, the breeders would require:
1.The dog to be 12 months of age or older
2. Must have been x-rayed for hip and elbow dysphasia and scored. The hip score to be breed average or lower. And the elbow score must be with in normal limits. An eye examination must have been performed by a qualified ophthalmologist and be clear of inherited eye diseases.
The breeder reserves the right to refuse to transfer the dog to the Main Register, should they consider the dog an unworthy show and/or breeding prospect.
It is stressed that a dog registered on the LIMITED register is just as good as one registered on the MAIN REGISTER, but a pup bought as PET is not always a Show Dog, nor should every dog be bred from (no matter how good its pedigree is).
The use of the LIMITED REGISTER is to protect you, your new puppy and the breeders.
IT CAN ALWAYS BE CHANGED SUBJECT TO THE ABOVE CRITERIA BEING SATISFACTORY.
In the meantime, enjoy your puppy for what it is.
A HAPPY FUN LOVING GOLDEN RETRIEVER
