    Default Lucy-ACA not AKC

    Ok so our new pup Lucy is ACA registered and not AKC and I knew going in they may not be as legit as AKC but the breeder we got her from was keeping them in house and had good records and her parents looked good. The sire is akc and the dam is aca. I guess in the back of my mind I'm worried if i got scammed and if she could be one of those old english dogs. Is there anyway to really ever know? We are so smitten with her now it doesn't really matter just don't want to think i went for a ride..

    The only thing that got me thinking this is that someone told me aca dogs are all mixed or designer dogs.

    Honestly..I don't know..but she looks perfect to me. Old English are wonderful Bully's too. In fact, they often have less health issues. I will get a few people here to give you an educated answer..

    I really dont think it matters what she is registered as its just a piece of paper and as long as you dont plan on breeding it really doesnt matter. I can understand your worry of getting scammed and is their a way your breeder can show you the family tree so to speak?

    She showed us the parents and pics of the grandparents. They all look like English bulldogs to me. The aca thing was just eating at me. I don't really care to show or breed. We will be getting spayed when she is the right age for it.

    papers for our puppy were AKC for the mom and--geez, something else for the sire. I was literally concerned for about two days (for the same reasons, $$$$), but then we totally forgot, stopped caring. You clearly have a beautiful dog, and over time I've been THANKFUL for whatever genetic misfire may have happened b/c Lupe has a slightly longer snout by a few cenimeters and clear hips on X-rays. But I totally remember worrying we got "scammed". It's part of the process. Just wait to her little teeth start kicking in, or when she plods up to you and sleeps on her feet, and then this will all be a distant concern!

    I got my pup from a breeder in PA. Parents weren't on site, but they had all their papers together, akc. It's so hard to tell with this breed whether we get scammed. What a sad world we live in.

    We are talking about two different clubs papers. One being the American Kennel Club & one being the American Canine Association . Americans recognize the AKC more for the breeds are older and more traceable . Canada has its own clubs also .it's not necessarily a bad thing, just a preference . You can find many different club papers around the world

    If your not showing her, or breeding her, it doesn't matter anyway , she is registered with you. My Dozers jaw grew into a severe underbite when he was 5 months old, and it's considered a genetic defect, but I don't care, he's mine. I could give him back to the breeder and either get my money back, or a new puppy, but I don't want either. I love him just the way he is. I figure god made him that way, and he is so cute and sweet. I bought him for a pet, so he's perfect in my eyes. Just enjoy your baby and dont worry.
