Registering your dog/pup helps the future of our breed. It is only through building our Breed Register and encouraging responsible breeding practices that we will be able to attain our mission, to preserve our Murray to as close to its origins as possible. A more comprehensive Breed Register assists us in guiding potential breeders with information on traits,health issues and pairing to reduce interbreeding or breeding with dogs who have come from previous outcrosses.
To register your dog you must already be an approved member or in the process of completing the membership application.
Dog Registration is $10 per dog and is a lifetime registration.
