OK I've exhausted every search function -- k9data.com and the AKC and google and everything else I could find and I'm stuck on one line in my dog's pedigree.

I asked his breeder and she stated the ancestor in question came from a rescue situation and she was lucky to even get the little information she did about the dog and parents.

Never a promising start, but conformationally sound (hips/elbows/heart/thyroid/eyes) and temperamentally an asset to the lines; wouldn't be my choice to add into a breeding program, but well, not breeding (my dog -- offspring several generations removed -- is neutered).

Just trying to find out ANYTHING about these dogs, their possible kennels, origins, breeders, ANYTHING!

The info I have is:

Dog (Female):
Dakota for Ashley
Call Name "Dakota"
Known Offspring: Kingdom Hearts Ruffino Chiante
Only Known Registration (Far from Ideal): Other Cont KC GR-03460575

Sire: Listed as "Mercy Shallfollowallthedays"
AKC SN83589004 (returns as a valid Golden Retriever male)
Country of Origin: US
Born: 01-21-2001

Dam: Stones Sophie Lady

AND...that's it! Can't find a thing beyond this.

Any ideas for how to get past this only remaining "roadblock" in my dog's pedigree? Each other line I'm able to trace -- unbroken -- back to at least the early 1900's, most to late 1800's.

Help? Thank you!

ETA: Quick note, my dog is pet bred, trained and working as a guide dog; good hips/normal elbows/thyroid/eyes/heart. Regardless of background, he's doing quite well (nearly 3 years old) from a breeding of a daughter of this "Dakota".

The easiest way is to buy a downloadable pedigree on the AKC store.
It's $15.

If I have BOM bucks I will do it tomorrow, unless you post that you have already gotten it.
I don't know what time of the month my free $$ comes to the AKC account...


IF you DO buy it, please fill in k9data for the future!
You might also go to OFA.org and check all the names- you can sometimes get the reg # even if the sire/dam don't have clearances if they have offspring who does.

These COntKC dogs will have AKC UR numbers- which means unregistered. It is a travesty imo...

Thank you so much for your help! I'll do that - definitely worth it, I don't think it's terribly expensive to buy and it'd be nice just to know the lineage for the sake of knowing. :) I'm going to go ahead and do that and then post to k9data: I love it as a resource!

From the perspective of a very careful and thoughtful breeder- if I sell a puppy on limited and he somehow ends up being bred through KC other than AKC - and especially though a puppy wholesaler specialist like ContKC, I am gonna be more than MAD if AKC allows the registry. I can show you another breeder's produce who now are enhancing ContKC pedigrees through the UR system (which then allows full SR registration).. it was never the intention of the breeder for that puppy to be bred, it was sold with that understanding, and then for someone to hoodwink the system, well, to me that is a betrayal of the relationship between good breeders and AKC. Even though your dog may be incredible, all of them can be incredible, that SR registration w AKC is lost when someone basically steals the right to registry and then someone else plays the system. I am personally wholly against the UR path to SR AKC registration.
