NKC American Bulldog Information
The National Kennel Club will not register an American
Bulldog that is not 100% AB. The 7/8 rule is not
allowed for single registering a dog. The American
Bulldog has been an estabilisted breed and any breeding
trying to add new blood into the breed will not be
registerable. We will single register an Amercian
bulldog that was not registered from a litter with the
NKC, however the pedigree/bloodline must be submitted
with proper documentation.
that host American Bulldog Shows now have the
option of hosting a Junior Champion Class.
A win will be awarded for this class and dog of
the year points will be awarded.
Effective immediately any American Bulldog
that is being single registered must have either been
previously registered by another registry or it must be
inspected. Any dog
that does not meet the requirements for registration
can petition the NKC office for registration by submitting a
completed application along with several pictures front,
back and both sides. Those applications will be
forwarded to the American Bulldog Board for verification of
breed and possible registration.
If as as puppy you show your American Bulldog in either the
bully or standard class then before the dog is a year old
you realize that the dog should have been shown in the other
classas a puppy Once an Amercian Bulldog has
been shown in either the Standard or Bully Show ring at a
show it has to stay in that class.
