How long does it take to get AKC dog papers?

Panda: How long does it take to get AKC papers for your dog?
I got my dog from a breeder, and ive had her for about 3 weeks already, the lady said that she already sent in for the AKC papers (sorry i dont exactly know whats involved in getting those papers) and would mail them to us when she received them, but she still claims to not have them…is she pulling my leg? or does it really take that long?

It usually takes about a month.

Once you get them from the breeder, you’ll have to send them back to AKC to get yourself registered as the owner, which will take another month or so…
