I bought a GSP puppy about 3 months ago from a guy that trained and owned trial and gun champion Shorthairs. The father came from a long list of field champions and was a beautiful dog. The mother of the puppies was a dog that his wife saved from a rescue group that wasnt taking care of and abusing 9 shorthair puppies. The mother doesnt have papers.Is there any way to petition for registration papers. The puppy I bought is exceptonal. I have never owned any bird dog with as much talent and easy to train so some of my buddies want one of her puppies but I am afraid I wont be able to sell all of them if it is a large litter.
Thanks I appreciate the info
The new name for ILP is PAL and you do have to have the dog spayed or neutered. You don't need anything from a vet if you have the pictures and the pedigree on the fathers side.
I have a female GSP that has her ILP and it was pretty easy to get. I did have her full pedigree as she was field registered which made it easier, but I have a friend who had a rescue lab and all she had to show were pictures to get her ILP.
I agree with singltrak on the breeding. Most people want registered dogs and there is no way this dog will have and AKC registration. Not fair to you or the puppies that you will have to find homes for. Plus, to get an ILP/PAL listing they have to be spayed/neutered.
