Registration

Dogs Previously Registered by Other Organisations

SABBS wants to encourage members of these organisations to join the Society, and to make it as easy and affordable as possible for them to legally register their Boerboels under the protection of the Act. Therefore, SABBS decided to introduce a window period – until the final Constitution and Breed Standard are in place – for the registration of dogs from these organisations free of charge.

Buyers and breeders who buy dogs registered with other organisations or who use males for servicing must ensure under all circumstances that such dogs and their offspring will be registerable with SABBS. The following conditions apply at present:

14.1     Dogs with registration certificates:

  • The owner must be a SABBS member.
  • Dogs’ registration certificates and appraisal point will be accepted, provided their pedigrees are known to SABBS.
  • Dogs do not have to be reappraised, unless required for linear classification.
  • Dogs must be micro-chipped.
  • DNA profiles of the dogs must be submitted with the registration certificates.

14.2     Dogs with birth certificates:

  • The owner must be a SABBS member.
  • Birth certificates of dogs born before 2 September 2014 will be accepted, provided their pedigrees are known to SABBS.
  • Dogs must be micro-chipped.
  • DNA profiles of both parents must be submitted.

14.3     Birth registrations of puppies born after 2 September 2014:

  • The breeder must be a SABBS member.
  • The parents of the puppy must be registered with SABBS.
  • The puppy must be micro-chipped.
  • DNA profiles of both parents must be submitted.
  • A birth notification fee of R135 per puppy will be payable.
  • If the puppy is older than 120 days on submission of the birth notification, a fee of R350 per puppy will be payable. (contact office@sabbs.org)about fees outside South Africa)

14.4     Dogs registered with KUSA only:

  • SABBS will consider registration of so-called KUSA dogs on merit, which will include among others, that the pedigrees must be known to SABBS; confirmation of the parents by DNA profiles; and that the dogs have been micro-chipped.
