Until the breed is accepted onto the Import Register, no FCI recognition will be given to puppies born in the UK - not even if BOTH parents are FCI registered. Once the breed is accepted onto the Import Register, it MAY be possible to gain an official pedigree retrospectively for these pups, but this will involve DNA testing of pups and parents and a lot of paperwork (and, doubtless, a fair bit of money).

Please, anyone considering buying a UK bred puppy at this time, be fully aware of these facts. There is not one single UK based breeder who breeds FCI recognised puppies at this moment in time and this is not likely to change in the foreseeable future.

As Tassle has said, the Activities Register is not a sign of breed acceptance and is open to all dogs - crossbreeds included - and does not qualify a breed to appear at dog shows.
