   To promote responsible breeding, all of my puppies/dogs are sold on a Limited Registration and spay/neuter basis, unless other arrangements are made in advance. Limited Registration means that the puppy is eligible for registration with the American Kennel Club and can compete in agility, obedience, and most other malamute related competitions, but NOT in conformation competition.  Any offspring produced by the dog would not be able to be registered with the AKC.

   Since some puppies purchased from Banshee Malamutes are purchased as companion dogs by owners who have no interest in breeding or showing, limited registration has no bearing on these dogs or their owner. Should an owner decide to become involved in breeding/showing in the future, and the dog is deemed to be breeding and/or "show quality", the option for Banshee Malamutes to reverse the registration and allow full registration is available.

After completing this Puppy/Dog Application Form, do you have any additional questions about the way I raise dogs, my expectant bitches, or anything else, please ask that here:
