List of dogs Deregistered?

Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

Just wondering . . .

 

How does the public find out which dogs and breeders have had dogs deregistered with the ABCA because of Conformation Championships?

If there were such a list of deregistered dogs with their sire's names (ABCA/and AKC if any), dam's names (ABCA/and AKC if any), breeder's name/s and owner's name/s available to the public (being either requested or posted), maybe it would make breeders of working ABCA dogs think twice about doing conformation with their own dogs, out crossing to conformation dogs, and/or about allowing their puppies to go into homes where they would possibly be shown in conformation events.

 

I believe that it is owed to the ranchers and farmers of America to help ensure they are indeed buying what the ABCA registry promotes as a working dog. To ensure this, I believe that such a list (being either requested or posted) of dogs, sires, dams, breeders, and owners that support conformation events and have had dogs deregistered with the ABCA because so, would be helpful to these ranchers and farms that look to the ABCA registry (and not to the AKC) for guidance in what is and is not a working dog.

 

Just a thought or maybe a idea.

 

I was just wondering, so I thought I'd ask if there was any such information available to the public.

Thanks Julie,

 

I also think it is also a legitimate question because as of now, there is no solid proof to the public that dogs are being deregistered because of conformation.

 

I believe such a list as I described above would be a highly valuable asset to the ABCA and the future of the Border Collie as a working dog/breed.

 

After all, seeing IS believing.

Makes sense to me. Why should it bother any one if such a list is available to the "public"?

 

So, I wonder what the answer is, and where the information is available.

Doesn't the ABCA pulish this information in its newsletters - not a cumulative list, just an announcement?

 

It would be easy enough to go to back issues and compile a list if this is the case.

 

I'm not sure how useful this would be to your average farm dog breeder, and how often the situation Katelynn describes comes up. Most AKC breeders looking to get workings lines into their breeding, look to trial dogs and "crossover" dogs - in these cases the breedings are done with eyes wide open on both sides.

 

It's just a fact that there's been no clear line drawn up to now - anything goes. It's hard to explain to the owners of stud dogs why it makes a difference what registry the pups sired by their dogs are going to end up in.

Eileen--thanks for the list. Makes for really interesting reading. There are some folks on there, shown as breeders of the sire or dam, who I'm sure are NOT pleased. Kinda makes ya not want to sell a dog--ever,

Patty,

The ABCA decided to deregister any dual-registered dogs who earned their KC conformation chanpionship. The dogs on Eileen's list (and their progeny) cannot be ABCA registered. Here's the exact wording from the ABCA website:

 

Concerned with the dangers of conformation breeding to the Border Collie, the ABCA Directors have voted to clarify our registration policy.

"The ABCA is a working stockdog registry and believes that breeding for conformation standards rather than working ability is detrimental to the health and working ability of the Border Collie. Consequently the ABCA will only register dogs or bitches whose ancestors are registered with the working registries with the same strict working goals as the International Sheepdog Society and the American Border Collie Association.

Dogs or bitches registered with any registry that promotes conformation showing of Border Collies (American Kennel Club, United Kennel Club, the Kennel Club (UK), Federacion Cynologique Internationale, Australian, or New Zealand Kennel Clubs, etc) will not be registered unless they are also registered by an acceptable working registry.

The ABCA will deregister any ABCA registered dog or bitch should it be named a 'Conformation Champion' by a conformation registry."

 

Also note that ABCA has stated in its Registration on Merit rules that no dog can be ROMed if it has been previously deregistered.

Thanks for the explanation, Julie. It makes sense and speaks highly of the ABCA's integrity and dedication to keep the BC a healthy working breed.

 

Now, if I could just find a trial/demonstration close enough to my neck of the woods to witness it first hand. :rolleyes:

Wow...one of the dogs de-registered is a full sibling (same litter?) to one of my dogs. My dog has never been AKC registered. I doubt mine could win in the conformation ring though. Look at what happens when people don't give a damn about anyone but themselves.

Should CH Ettrick On Edge not be de-registered as well?

I read somewhere recently that progeny of deregistered dogs have come back in through the ROM program. Is that correct?

 

Penny

 

If you've got the dog, the time and money, the ROM is still no cake walk, so if the progeny of a deregistered dog can successfully complete the requirements to be ROM'd, as long as they don't have the "CH" moniker, then what would be wrong with that? Should they get that CH later on down the road, then they'd also be deregistered.

I didn't say there was anything wrong with it. In fact, I approve. I wish to know if it is a fact that progeny of deregistered dogs can be registered via ROM.

Jodi,

 

The above list is up to date as far as AKC Champions are concerned. There have been two additional de-registrations:

 

Name:
Red-Dawn's I Love Lucy
(FCI conformation championship)

Owner: Alicia Ward, Sandy Blundell & Katie Blundell

Breeder: Alicia Ward

Sire: Red Dawn Paris

Dam: Red Hot Ember

 

Name:
Red Dawns Bree
(UKC conformation championship)

Owner: Alicia Ward

Breeder: John T Wilson

Sire: Imp Sam

Dam: Imp Floss

 

*****EDITED TO ADD LATER DE-REGISTRATIONS

 

Name:
Old Oaks Fuego
(UKC conformation championship)

Owner: Robin/Mike Abbott

Breeder: Robin/Mike Abbott

Sire: SM Stink

Dam: Rockin G Flo

 

Name:
Old Oaks Chica
(UKC conformation champion)

Owner: Robin/Mike Abbott

Breeder: Robin/Mike Abbott

Sire: SM Stink

Dam: Rockin G Flo

 

Penny,

 

The offspring of conformation champions are eligible for ROM if they are not themselves conformation champions. To date, no offspring of a de-registered dog has been registered via ROM.

Thank you, Eileen. What is FCI? Also, what do you attibute to the virtual disappearance of AKC de-registrations? Do you think that the "We have dual registered dogs!" breeders that show in conformation have dropped their ABCA registrations and went strictly AKC? Or are there dogs out there who may have become AKC champions, but their names are so vastly different, and the ABCA doesn't have the manpower to enforce it? Has their been a significant decrease in overall registrations since the rule went into effect, and if so, would you attribute that to the implementation of the new rule? When the rule initially went into effect, I thought I remember hearing grumblings about a lawsuit by a conformation handler. Did that ever happen, and if so, what was the outcome?

I thought that there was one in Michigan who gained her ROM?

Just wanted to add this fuller explanation, taken from a previous thread, of why the ABCA de-registers conformation champions:

 

The kennel club model for breeding -- adopting an appearance standard for the breed, breeding to conform to it, and judging and rewarding the dogs who conform best -- is contrary to the development of a good working breed. Working breeds which have been taken into kennel clubs and subjected to this reward system for conformation breeding have all, over time, suffered loss of their inbred working ability. We simply do not want that to happen to our dogs.

 

Entering a border collie in conformation shows, competing for a conformation title, and advertising a border collie as a conformation champion all lend legitimacy to the idea that an appearance standard is an appropriate measure by which to judge a border collie. That is a destructive idea, and one that we cannot allow to take hold in our gene pool. The more firmly the idea takes hold that the conformation ring is a valid measure of quality, the more breeders will buy into this notion and will breed to conform to the appearance standard that is rewarded there, and the more our breed's working ability will deteriorate over time. If working ability is to be preserved in our breed, the border collie must be judged by a working standard
and by no other
. The working standard must be our only standard of excellence.

 

Dogs shown to their championship are excluded from ABCA registration not because it's impossible today for an individual dog to possess working ability as well as an appearance that is rewarded in the breed ring, but because of the impact that conformation showing, breeding and judging of border collies will have on the descendants of those dogs in the long run. When border collies are shown in conformation they are placed on a different path, one which will make not them but their descendants a different kind of dog. Once a dog is placed on that path, and shown to a conformation championship, we believe that in the interests of preserving herding excellence in the breed he should not remain in the working registry.

Thank you, Eileen. What is FCI?

 

Federation Cynologique Internationale. It's an international kennel club, based in Europe. It runs or coordinates worldwide KC-type competitions (like the world agility trials, I believe).

 

Also, what do you attibute to the virtual disappearance of AKC de-registrations? Do you think that the "We have dual registered dogs!" breeders that show in conformation have dropped their ABCA registrations and went strictly AKC? Or are there dogs out there who may have become AKC champions, but their names are so vastly different, and the ABCA doesn't have the manpower to enforce it?

 

I think that everyone now knows that they will lose their ABCA registration if their dog gets a CH, so people who value ABCA registration are no longer showing in conformation. Those people tended to be the obedience/agility core of the BCSA, with dual-registered dogs, who were keen on proving their dogs' "versatility." (Those people may also not be showing in conformation so much anymore for a separate unrelated reason -- unhappiness with the way conformation is playing out for the breed.) The dedicated conformation people who had dual-registered dogs never cared much about having an ABCA registration, so they just stopped registering with ABCA. The number of conformation championships awarded to Border Collies has not diminished at all -- it is slowly increasing. But the championships are going to non dual-registered dogs. So I guess in a way the rule did make people choose, according to where their priorities lay. As you know, I wish we had forced that kind of choice with regard to dual registration, but we didn't.

 

I don't think it's an enforcement issue -- I think the ABCA has missed few, if any, AKC championships awarded to ABCA dogs.

 

Has their been a significant decrease in overall registrations since the rule went into effect, and if so, would you attribute that to the implementation of the new rule?

 

There has been a recent decrease in overall registrations, but there were other contemporaneous factors (e.g., investigations and expulsions of several puppy millers, which not only resulted in the loss of those millers' future registrations but also registrations from apprehensive colleagues of theirs; the rule requiring that pups be registered by their breeder; dogs dual registering with AKC who later are bred, and whose breeders see no need to register their offspring anywhere but AKC; the declining economy, etc.) which makes it hard to attribute the decrease to this particular rule. I actually think very little of the decrease is attributable to the policy of de-registering conformation champions.

 

When the rule initially went into effect, I thought I remember hearing grumblings about a lawsuit by a conformation handler. Did that ever happen, and if so, what was the outcome?

 

Never happened. There're always more threats of lawsuits than there are lawsuits, fortunately for society.
