But then only Gizmo (my bichon frise) is not a rescue dog. He's an AKC pup with a long genetic line with several champions of both dam and sire lines and I know the breeder even if I got Gizmo from the local pet shop. Both my bulldogs are rescue dogs therefore, I was fully prepared to take on upredictable traits and illnesses, therefore, I didn't much care if they were registered with a Kennel Club. As it happens, Bullie is a CKC registered dog and Angus is AKC. But, I did not bother tracing their records because I don't know the credibility of their breeders.
