Exclamation ALERT!!ALERT! UKC Single Registration Process for American Pit Bull Terriers to close

Press Release:

UKC Single Registration Process for American Pit Bull Terriers to close April 30, 2010

Posted on 04/15/2010

For more information, contact [email protected]

April 15, 2010, Kalamazoo, Michigan. The United Kennel Club announced today that effective April 30, 2010, the Single Registration process will be closed to American Pit Bull Terriers. Accordingly, the only APBTs that will be eligible for UKC Registration after April 30, 2010 are those who come from a UKC Registered Litter. All applications for APBT Single Registrations that are postmarked or hand delivered after April 30, 2010 will be denied. Also, effective April 19, 2010, TLs (Temporary Listings) will no longer be issued to APBTs.

Decisions to open or close Single Registrations for each breed are made after careful consideration and input from the breed associations. It is important to note that this requirement is in no way unique to APBTs; in fact, the majority of UKCís most popular breeds have been closed to the Single Registration process for decades.

In all cases, these decisions are made with the breedís gene pool in mind. For example, UKC may decide to keep a breed with a small number of registrations eligible for Single Registration to broaden the scope, health and vigor of a breedís gene pool. However, when a breedís gene pool is vibrant and plentiful enough for responsible breeders to have a large enough base of quality dogs to use in their breeding programs, it becomes a candidate to be limited to littered registered pups.

The American Pit Bull Terrier has a historical and well-established gene pool. It was one of the fifteen breeds originally registered by the United Kennel Club when it was established in 1898. UKC founder Chauncey Bennettís own APBT, Bennettís Ring, represented one of the first dogs to be registered with UKC over a century ago. At this time, we owe it to this magnificent UKC breed to close the APBT Single Registration process, not for the benefit of UKC, but for the benefit of the breed.

Established in 1898, the United Kennel Club is the largest all-breed performance-dog registry in the world, registering dogs from all 50 states and 25 foreign countries. More than 60 percent of its 14,000 annually licensed events are tests of hunting ability, training, and instinct. UNITED KENNEL CLUB prides itself on its family-oriented, friendly, educational events. To find out more about registration and events, call or visit our website.

Really now? So wait, no more adding AmStaffs to the UKC gene pool? This is very interesting...

ETA: Just checked over on the UKC board to see if this is legit, and evidently so. http://forums.ukcdogs.com/showthread...20#post2901820

ETA ETA: While I don't mind there being no more AmStaffs, it is a bummer that ADBA dogs wont be in there anymore, unless they reg now.

Of course, unless someone along the line doesn't register their puppy with one of them. ADBA has nothing to do with UKC and UKC has nothing to do with ADBA.

What is going on is that if you have an ADBA only registered dog you will not be able to get UKC registration on it unless it was bred and registered from UKC parents.

It screws up those of us with ADBA/UKC dogs who would like to go back to the original ADBA gene pool... This isn't enough notice IMO.

Right I know they are separate. But I know a lot of people have dual registered dogs.

I don't see it making any difference in he quality of the breed other than UKC dogs staying to the UKC standard rather than having new ADBA standard dogs added in.


I believe and mind you this is just my opinion, you will start to see less "APBTS" in the UKC ring and more "Amstaff" style dogs. Well less than you see now any ways.

That's true, I really hope it doesn't deplete the apbt - not that there's anything wrong with the amstaff... Just the history of the breed to be flushed down the toilet - just quietly swept under a rug with no one to have any vote or say so... So goes the APBT so goes America...
