Giggles: My dog is APRI registered and his papers show champion bloodlines, he's a great bulldog, can I breed him?
I purchased him from Petland, and my vet told me that he is almost a perfect example of what an English Bulldog should look like, without any of the hip problems or breathing problems that can be common. I have had him for a year and I think he is great, and we have had several offers to breed him. I have heard that APRI is less than perfect, is it possible to prove his bloodlines and register him with AKC?

No, you cannot register an APRI dog with the AKC because APRI is a scam registry. It is used by puppy millers and BYB's who cannot uphold to the AKC standards. They will register anything. Your dog was purchased at a petstore and doesn't need to be bred. Get your dog fixed.

And next time, please get yoru dog from a reputable breeder and don't contribute to animal cruelty by purchasing from a pet store.

Champion lines from a registry like APRI doesnt mean much. It means even less that you brought him at a pet store - a dog with true champion parents would never be caught being sold off at a pet store when the breeders would be super careful who to place the pup with.
You can't prove his bloodlines much less register him with the AKC, since the paperwork you have for his pedigree with through APRI.
Your vet is not a professional judge for dogs. Vets take care of the medical side of animals, not so much conformation.
Even if your dog was a good example of its kind, you should enter it in competitions so that you can have a good, first person look at other competing dogs and then truly decide whether or not you should breed your dog.
Plus having champion bloodlines does not make your dog champion quality. Both of our dogs are from champion blood lines - our mini pin's father was 3rd in the nation at major dog shows - but she is fixed because she herself not of CH. quality.
