The breeder sholud have provided you with the AKC registration papers for you to register with. If the parents were AKC registered, they sholud have had papers on them as well. Any reputable breeder would have given you the proper paperwork with the parent information. Also: Just because your dog is registered does not mean it is worthy to breed. If you want to do it right, you need to show your dog in breed and get championship titles in order to prove your dog is up to breed standard. You will also need to OFA the dog once she reaches 2 years old. Hips and elbows are recommended. Also screening for the typical diseases that some breeds are prone to is recommended. You do have to buy an AKC registered dog to register yours with the AKC. If the puppy you got is NOT from an AKC registered pair, there is no point in even thinking of breeding the. The people you got it from were just in it for the money, and were not trying to improve the breed at all. Basically you would own a beagle type dog .no proof it's even pure.
