Rules

Titles Recognized

  • Only AKC titles on Miniature American Shepherds will be recognized for Hall of Fame Breeder.
  • Points are cumulative. (e.g. a dog with a CDX counts its CD as 1 pt. and its CDX as 1 pt. for a total of 2 points.)

Applications

Applications for a Hall of Fame Breeder award must be filled out on the "MASCUSA Hall of Fame Breeder Application Form," and accompanied by a Breeder of Record Report from AKC.

Breeder of Record reports are done on an individual basis and charged on an hourly basis. Requests should be made to reports@akc.org and should include the following information: Request for Breeder of Record Report for MASCUSA ROM Program, Person's name (with any other name used), Kennel Name. Report to include titled dogs only and to include dog's name and titles and breeder's name.

Any applications submitted that are not legible, or that do not include a completed "MASCUSA Hall of Fame Breeder Application Form" will not be processed. When completing the application, all titles must be listed on separate lines. No fee is required.

Applicants Accepted

The MASCUSA Hall of Fame Breeder Program is for MASCUSA members only and all titles must be earned on AKC Miniature American Shepherds. Certificates will be awarded accordingly, and will be given a number designation in order of the achievement, plus the year it was achieved.

Recognition

Applications will be processed as they are received. Once approved, Hall of Fame Breeder awards will be published in the next issue of the Tuesday Talk.
