ABRA Registration is available for purebred American Bulldogs ALREADY registered by the NKC, ABA, ARF, ARFE, EKC and the UKC only. We do not register dogs without papers.

To dual register your american bulldog please email the dog’s registration certificate, pedigree and photo.

Litter Registration is available for litters out of ABRA Registered American Bulldogs only. The cost is $5/puppy. Please email the ABRA #’s for Dam & Sire, litter DOB and NUMBER of live puppies. If you do not own the stud, written confirmation from the stud owner is required to proceed with litter registration.

If you bred your ABRA registered female to a non ABRA registered male you will have to ask the owner of the stud dog to get the stud ABRA registered before you can register the litter.  If the stud is deceased you will not be able to register it ABRA and the litter must be registered through the registry where the stud is registered.

If you bred your female to frozen or fresh chilled semen the stud dog must be ABRA registered and DNA must be on file.

Pedigrees are available to the owner on record for ABRA registered dogs, the fee is $20, please send the request by email with the ABRA # and ABRA registered name of the dog. We have 5 generation text only pedigrees and we have 3 generation photo pedigrees.

  1. Hi there, I am wanting to get my Female American Bulldog Papered and registered. I have papers for both her parents from the breeder I got her from, Her Father was Registered with ABRD and her Mothers mum is with the ABRA, I can scan and email you confirmation of what I have. The breeder I got my Girl from did not paper or register the litter 🙁 however I am wanting to paper my girl. Is that all Im needing? Kind Regards Diva NZ

  2. Hi Diva, you cannot register your female, you can buy a registered dog or an unregistered dog, if your breeder wants to register the litter for you she can but you can not.

  3. Hi, I bought an Abra registered female with breeding rights, I plan on breeding her with stud from the same kennel I bought my dog (with another Abra dog). My question is will I the owner be able to register the puppies without being a registered breeder/ registered kennel, And if not would it be possible to be a registered kennel, but I am living in an apartment,. I only own my 1 female abra registered dog out of champion lines. Thank you for your time.

  4. My puppy came with registration papers but my daughter got some water on them. You can still see everything except the very bottom words that talk about dog shows. Is there any way to get a new copy. Also I would like to change the name that I wrote down before I submit them. What should I do?

  5. The only person that can order a duplicate certificate is the owner on record, our record, if the puppy is still owned by the breeder according to my database you will have to go through the breeder. You can use the form that you have, simply cross out what you wrote, rewrite it and send it in.

  6. We have bred a litter in New Zealand, Dam is ARF registered and Sire is ABA registered. Can we transfer both parents into ABRA? You need certificate, at least 3 generation pedigree, and full frontal photo for each Sire and Dam, correct? What is the price in USD for registering both Sire & Dam? And then the litter of 6 pups? Thanks.

  7. I’m trying to fill out my ABRA form for my pup and have no idea how to fill it out. I don’t know if he is a 3rd generation or 5th generation or what those even mean? There is a section that asks for call/nickname, dna, ncl, ich, hip/elbow score, and working titles, I don’t know any of that. Never owned a purebred.

  8. I was curious why dog registration in your club was so high. I registered my American bulldog with NKC which seems to be more well established with vastly greater membership. NKC membership with a 3 generation pedigree is only $23. although I received litter papers to register with ABRA, I couldn’t justify the $50 fee. Doesn’t a prohibitive fee constrict the gene pool for the ABRA registered dogs?

  9. Hi Smoore, a 3 generation pedigree is parents, grand parents and great parents, a 5 generation pedigree is great great grandparents and great great great grand parents. The call/nickname is the name that you call your dog everyday, like Buddy, the registered name is more like Rosebull’s Buddy to All at Crimson Kennels, DNA is a form of identifying the dog, someone submits a cheek swab to a laboratory and the dog’s genetic code is recorded. NCL and ICH are short forms for genetic diseases that some American Bulldogs can be born with, some breeders screen their brood stock for these diseases before breeding them so if your dog has been screened the results can be recorded on his registration certificate. Hip and elbow scores are the results of hip and elbow x-rays, another health screen that is done to brood stock. Working titles are titles earned by trialling or competing in working events like Canine Good Citizen, Schutzhund, NWDA, Irondog etc.

  10. Great question! We charge more because we offer more, our certificates are full color and feature a picture of the dog, all of your dog’s health screens, working titles, identification, and conformation championships can be included on your dog’s registration certificate. We offer 5 generation pedigrees with a picture of the dog and we offer 3 generation picture pedigrees. We have programs for breeders that produce litters out of health screened dogs and programs for breeders that produce litters out of health screened and proven working parents. We offer litter advertisement on our homepage. We offer webpages for our Champions. We protect the breeder’s prefix on their puppies for life. We offer registration online and by email and we offer same day registration for single dog and litters. We are owned and run by American Bulldog Breeders so we have a much greater understanding of the American Bulldog community and their needs.
