    Default Australia-recognised Breeds

    OK, here's the question for experienced breeders, although I'm not sure if the title is appropriate If not, moderators can feel free to change it

    I noticed that some breeds recognised by FCI are not listed among recognised breeds in Australia (shall I put it that way?). So how does it go when you import such breed in AU, want to continue breeding and attend shows and do it all legaly and by the rule of course. My favourite breed has been imported several years ago but I still don't see it on the list, but the breeder has had litter or two all with pedigree parents (semen imported from o/s) Why and how? I'm just curious how it works.

    thanks guys!

    If it isn't recognised by the ANKC, and unless there is a separate register of the breed, then I guess it can't be shown. I would think that for breeding, the dogs may possibly be registered still on the OS register?? This is all guess work though sorry... I am not a breeder and really don't know.

    Thanks Anne. That's what I find confuzing. Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI), is an international federation of kennel clubs, so why isn't it recognised by ANKC if it's recognised internationally (and for decades, precisely, since 1939., not for a year or two)

    I imported a bitch from Czech who was FCI registered and then transferred her to a VCA registered bitch. From what I understand it comes down to a prohibited import, breed specific. Numerous breeds are restricted and it also depends on what state you import them to, as different states have different rules. Another hurdle now is that there are breeds now prohibited from flying, so not prohibited from being registered here but no way to get them here as airlines will not bring them in due to the high risk. Check with AQIS and check with your canine controlling body, they'll have all the answers.

    The ANKC ?
    Because most are of the belief that if it isn't recognised by the ANKC then it isn't a purebreed dog , end of story .


    Mango , I was unaware of breeds being banned from flight,could you perhaps pass on a link that gives suitable information?

    Its a simple matter of applying to have a breed recognised by the ANKC, if the breeder * or anyone *wants, they will either accept or reject the proposal based on meeting the guidelines, the ANKC recognises the FCI as a bonifide registry. So it shouldnt be a problem for them, the process can be found on the ANKC site under part 6 'register and regulations' section 10 I believe.

    'Tis a long and complicated business, but easier than registering a new breed. Apologies in advance for the length here...

    From the ANKC regulations:

    SECTION 10
    Recognition of New Breeds

    10.1 Requirements for the Recognition of any breed, which is recognised by a recognised Overseas Controlling Bodies (10/97)

    The ANKC recognises new breeds, which are recognised by the Recognised Overseas Controlling Body provided that:

    10.1.1 That each individual dog to be re-registered is registered with a overseas Canine Control Body that is recognised by the ANKC and accompanied by the original registration issued by the controlling body in the country in which the animal was last registered and by an “Export Certified/Pedigree”. (10/06,6.1.2)

    10.1.2 That each individual dog to be re-registered has all ancestors shown on the Export Certified/Pedigree are fully registered. ie The Prefix or Suffix plus the dogs name and the registration number must be provided for all ancestors shown on the Export Certified/Pedigree. (10/06, 6.1.2)

    10.1.3 The ANKC holds the appropriate Breed Standard.

    10.1.4 The importer to provides sufficient additional breed information, such as additional text expanding on the breed standard, photographs and diagrams to allow the ANKC to prepare an appropriate Breed Standard Extension. The importer shall also provide written approval for the use of this material. (10/06, 6.1.2)

    10.1.5 The Breed Standards Coordinator collates the above and checks the translation of the Standard into English where appropriate

    10.1.6 The Administrator circulates the Standard and additional information to all member bodies for comment and formal adoption at the next Conference

    10.1.7 Breeds recognised from the 1st July to the 31st December shall be shall be eligible for entry on to the purebred register forthwith and shall be effective from the 1st July the following year for exhibition purposes. (10/06, 6.1.2)

    10.1.8 Breeds recognised from the 1st January to the 30th June shall be shall be eligible for entry on to the purebred register forthwith and shall be effective from the 1st January the following year for exhibition purposes. (10/06, 6.1.2)

    10.1.9 When a new breed arrives in Australia, the breed Standards Coordinator and the Administrator be notified. [Added 16/10/97]

    10.1.10 An Open Book Examination will be drawn up as soon as possible after recognition and forwarded to all member bodies. This examination may include questions on matters contained in the Breed Standard Extension.
    (10/06, 6.1.2)

    Phew....

    I have a breed in mind myself but will be saving pennies for a little while yet...
