I'll pose those questions here again as I've gotten over the deleted posts issue.
Here's what I posted in the new registration thread on the forum a little while back - no response so far:
Here's a paraphrasing of what I wrote in the FB post thread:1. If a dog is registered with the TDR on conditional or limited registration, but is used for breeding anyway (without TDR approval), will those dogs be registered with the TDR on limited registration if bred with another TDR registered Tamaskan (regardless of registration (i.e. full, conditional, limited))?
2. If the pups produced (from #1) will not be registered with the TDR on limited registration, will they be listed in the TDR database as purebred Tams but clearly shown as NOREG on their ID to indicate they're not registered Tams?
I honestly think it'd be beneficial if the latter were done: breeding restricted Tam puppies produced (as long as with 2 TDR registered Tams irrespective of registration status) to be included in the database, but not registered. Of course, this would require cooperation from the owners of the dogs/pups to provide this information to the TDR. :p
I understand why it may be a good idea to register purebred Tamaskans from the Blus if the owners provide sufficient proof to the TDR and request registration of their dog. However, does this mean that all unregistered purebred Tamaskans can be registered with the TDR if their owners go through the process and "pass", per se? If that's the case, then are these Tams obtaining full registration, limited or conditional registration?
While I understand why it's no fault of the owners and they should be allowed to seek registration, I just think it's a slap in the face to those who are registered TDR breeders who work towards bettering the breed. If anything, I feel the purebred Tams obtained by unregistered TDR breeders should be registered under limited registration. On a case-by-case basis, should these owners wish to register themselves as breeders, then they can go through that process and obtain full registration for their dog(s).
I apologize in advance if mods/admins find me bumping this thread periodically...I'd really appreciate a response to this either way as I'm sure there are others out there who feel the same as I do.
