Alrighty, so I keep getting pressured into trying agility with Zoso as well as Schutzhund by several of our club members because he bounces like a bloody kangaroo and should have no problems with the jumps, so what the hey, I guess I'll finally try to ILP him in case we ever want to try AKC events. Here are the rules for the AKC's ILP:

Two recent and clear color photographs of the dog;


* one full front view showing the facial characteristics of the dog;
* one view showing the full side profile of the dog standing on a flat surface (not grass).


(ALL PHOTOS SHOULD BE TAKEN AT EYE LEVEL IN A STANDING POSITION,
INCLUDE THE WHOLE DOG IN THE PHOTO. DO NOT SHOOT DOWN ON THE DOG.)

So my contenders for side photos:

His ears kept flicking backwards as there were walkers coming up about 50 yards behind him:





No, Zoso, the point is for you not to look like a GSD. No stacking allowed.



Here's a neat one that I probably wouldn't pick to submit, but he's got the prettiest coat I've ever seen on a dog in the sunset:



Not sure if this counts as standing since he's about to lay down, but it's a good frontal pic of his head:



Opinions?

:eek: Does AKC register Dingos? :lol: :lol:
All jokin aside, I've seen ILP registered dogs that you wanna say "That's a WHAT"?
The pics will be fine. All they want is your registration fee. :D :wink:

p.s.
You also need a Vet's cert that the dog has been spayed/neutered.

Very beautiful pictures! Very interesting double back dews on him!
The front-facing pic required by AKC does need to be him standing straight up, ears forward, and needs to show his feet. Just saving you from the trouble, because I had to re-send in a registration for ILP because the pic didn't show the dog's feet and one of the ears was back.

Thanks for letting me know, Sarah. For as many pictures as I've taken of him, I don't think I have a single good one standing straight up with face and ears all the way forward. I might have to break out *dun dun DUN* squeaky ducky to inspire his attention. And yeah, have no idea where those double dew claws came from. I heard one Belgian person say they had double dew claws in one of their Laekenois, but no idea other than that.

Bob, you'll see the amazing rare red bouncing dingo dog soon enough. Actually I heard on one forum how someone from Washington, DC had a real light fawn Mal without much blackening and they had gotten asked numerous times if it was a dingo.

For 5 generations (at LEAST), no dog on either side of Carbon's pedigree has had or thrown a dog with rear dews, however 2 of his sisters were born with them. You never know what is way back in those genes that'll jump quite a few generations and appear in a pup.

One more probably dumb question: when they mean they want a standing full front shot with details of the head, does that mean they want one like this:



or like this?



I'm guessing the second but, hmm, it should would be helpful for us idiots in grad school to post an example picture or two. :wink: That's the AKC for ya, I guess?

Well, the owners of a Pit mix I worked with recently did the second example (the one that says "or like this" with dog facing the camera, and I guess it worked.

"standing, full frontal view" means just that. The dog should be standing, and the picture should be of his full front, from the top of the ears down to the feet. Like the second picture, in other words. :wink:

Oh yeah, so did they end up being able to ILP that dog? Was wondering about that...

re: double rear dew-claws. a friend of mine rescued a Great Pyrenees, and when i commented on his double rear dew-claws, informed me that they're normal for the breed to help them negotiate on snow/ice; therefore not removed.

i took her word ('cause she's the kind-like Connie--that researchs everything), but i have to add that Zozo doesn't look like he has much Pyr in him. at least close up :lol:

There are a number of breeds where the standard calls for double dew claws. Most are the heard guarding breeds such as the Pyrenees.
Not at all uncommon.
