Step By Step Guide to Filling out the SPDBS Litter Registration Application
Use this form to request Registration for a new litter whelped by a SPDBS registered Saluki bitch or sired by a SPDBS registered dog. This is the beginning of the SPDBS registration process and will provide a Case Number for each puppy for the purposes of initiating the Registration process.
Enter the number of living puppies after whelping by sex and the date of birth.
Enter the registered name of the sire, his registration number and his DNA certificate number.
Enter the registered name of the dam, her registration number and her DNA certificate number.
If your litter is the result of an artificial insemination with frozen or chilled semen please contact the registrar. You should still submit this form.
The owner/s of the sire should enter the location the breeding took place and ALL dates of breeding. The owner/s of the sire should print and sign their name.
The owner/s of the dam or lessees of the dam should enter their name/s, primary contact address. Telephone number, e-mail, and Fax number if applicable.
ALL the dam owners should print and sign the form.
Return this application to the SPDBS Registrar or the SPDBS Secretary. You may enclose payment with this application or use PayPal (preferred).
DNA typing is required for all Salukis seeking registration with SPDBS in the following circumstances:
1) The Saluki is imported into the United States from any other country. A copy of the DNA certificate shall be filed with the Registrar prior to the issuance of a permanent CRN.
2) The Saluki is bred from. A copy of the DNA certificate of the sire and dam shall be filed with the Registrar prior to the issuance of a litter registration.
If the sire is unknown or if multiple sires are used, each dog that could be the sire
shall be DNA typed, and each puppy in the resulting litter shall be DNA typed to determine the sire of each puppy. A copy of the DNA certificate of each individual sire and puppy shall be filed with the Registrar prior to the issuance of a litter registration.
3) Fees for DNA typing are the responsibility of the Saluki owner requesting SPDBS registration services. Fees for any subsequent SPDBS DNA services shall be set by the Board of Directors and published.
4) All DNA typing shall be performed through the AKC DNA program.
Because both sire and dam must have DNA on file with the SPDBS Registrar prior to the registration of a litter, SPDBS strongly recommends that DNA kits be collected and submitted to AKC for processing at the time of the breeding.
