We are pleased to announce that I am now officially
Hilda Heaven Sent
When I arrived at the PugRanch last May
I did not bring any AKC registration papers with me.
We are thankful that AKC offers pups that do not have AKC registration papers to apply for a limited registration that allows them to compete in AKC dog sports.
In my case (and Mabel's also) we applied for a
"Purebred Alternative Listing"
Dogs that are of mixed heritage may apply for a
"Canine Companion" listing
and will be designated an "All American Dog"
for competition purposes.
To apply for my PAL# I needed to be at least 6 months old,
spayed (or neutered for boys),
send a front and side picture
and tell AKC why we think I am a purebred Pug.
My front picture
2 weeks later it arrived in the mail!
My official listing with AKC!
And that is not all!
Now that I have a PAL #
Mom was able to send in my Canine Good Citizen test results and have that title added to my record!!
So now I am officially
Hilda Heaven Sent CGC
Mom and Mabel are pretty proud of me!
We are the PugRanch Kids
