I don't know the true basis of the program but the ADBA does offer some time of limited peformance registry now so the dogs can compete at the shows in the fun events. I just don't own anything like that so I don't know for sure but hit them and see what is about. At least if you can't get paper, papers, you can compete and that is all that matters. That is without knowing the family pedigree to the canine.
