Let me start off by saying when I as looking for a chiauhauh... My intention was not to show..... That being said when the owner of the pet store told me she was register she did not tell me to what and I never thought to ask. After we all feel in love with her... I realized it was a ACA registration.... What the heck was that?!?! So as I researched a little I found out it is really just a tracking site. Don't get me wrong I would not trade her for the world but I feel a bit foolish. Thanks for letting me vent!

I would feel the same!

Sadly, most pets sold in pet stores are from puppy mills. Unfortunately, ACA, APRI and CKC (Continental Kennel Club not to be confused with Canadian Kennel Club which is reputable) have all popped up and none of them are legitimate, reputable registries but lots of people are "registering" dogs with them trying to get more money.

Hopefully your baby will be healthy, happy and is of course precious so not having a registration won't matter!

Your right it doesn't matter .... Just feel foolish for not asking the right questions. She went to her first vet visit today and she is great!

Just love her, it doesn't matter if she is a show dog or not. She is still a little baby who needs you and your love. It might be a wonderful experience to show dogs, but it is so much more wonderful to have a little one that you can just snuggle up with and who snuggles with you and is so happy to be with you no matter what. Enjoy her.

Regina and Timmy my snuggle buddy.

First of all, congrats with your new puppy!
I never ever trust pet shops! They just want to make money. But i'm glad your puppy is healthy, that's the most importand thing. Is she good socialised and all that?
What's her or his name and do you have photos? :D
