obtained by registering with the AKC's Foundation Stock Service (your dog will
keep this number when the breed eventually achieves full recognition). If your
Pyr Shep is registered with PSCA, but not AKC, you can apply using your PSCA
pedigree certificate along with the application form (pdf also downloadable at
