Below is from AKC's website (http://www.akc.org/contact/answer_center/faq_dogreg.cfm) They also have a page for resolving conflicts with a breeder at http://www.akc.org/contact/answer_ce...veconflict.cfm
I never received a dog registration application from my breeder. How can I get an application for my dog?
Answer: Buyers should not accept a promise that this identification or the registration application will be sent later. It is the buyer’s responsibility to obtain complete identification of the dog as described below. If sufficient information to identify the dog within AKC records is not forthcoming, the buyer should seriously consider not purchasing the dog.
This identifying information may be stated on a properly completed AKC registration application, on a bill of sale, or on a written statement, signed by the seller, that gives the dog's full breeding information as follows:
Breed, sex and color
Date of birth of the dog
Registered names and numbers of the dog's sire and dam
Name and address of the breeder
Date of purchase by the buyer
Name and address of the buyer
If you have this information, you should write a letter to AKC and give the details of the situation and copies of any documents you have. Please provide the full names, addresses, and phone numbers of everyone involved, including you. You will need to fax or mail that letter and copies of all related documents to:
American Kennel Club
Case Management Dept.
PO Box 900066
Raleigh, NC 27675-9066
Fax - 919-816-4250
We will review the situation, contact the breeder, and get back to you.
Please sign your letter of complaint.
Registration with the AKC is strictly voluntary. The AKC cannot force breeders to register their litters with us, and, as there are many domestic dog registries, the term “papers” or “papered” does not necessarily mean “eligible for AKC registration.”
If you have made every available effort to obtain the AKC registration application from the seller (litter owner/ breeder, pet store or third party) and it is still not forthcoming, the AKC can only recommend that you seek legal counsel to determine if you can obtain relief through civil channels. You may also wish to bring this matter to the attention of your local Better Business Bureau or Consumer Protection Service.
The AKC is not directly involved in the commerce of dogs, and the AKC does not license, endorse, register, or recommend any breeders or kennels. Membership in the AKC is comprised of independent dog clubs located throughout the United States. No individual persons are members of the AKC.
