Many people confuse the breed with the pedigree: that a dog is a breed does not mean that it has a pedigree, while for it to have a pedigree it does need to be a breed.
The pedigree consists of the genetic inheritance of a dog, although it is also an accrediting document that ensures that the great-grandparents, grandparents and parents of your dog were purebred, so the grandchild is also. This certificate is issued by the Royal Spanish Canine Society and in it all the data of the dog's genealogical tree appear. The birth and death of their ancestors, their characteristics, etc..

How to know if a dog has a pedigree
Many people who adopt purebred dogs wonder this many times. If your dog has a pedigree, they should give you the certificate issued by the Royal Spanish Canine Society. If you do not have this document, you can write to the Royal Society indicating the microchip number of your dog to indicate if it is registered in the Spanish Origin Book (LOE). If it is not registered in this file and you do not have the certificate, it is because your dog does not have a pedigree, no matter how much it is of breed.
How to get a pedigree for a dog in Spain
The pedigree is not tangible but a team of people can decide whether to grant it or not. Then, ¿how to know if a dog has a pedigree? If you do not have the supporting document, you cannot decide for yourself that you have it.
In the event that it is not registered in the LOE you must take your dog to a dog show of the Royal Society. There, the experts will check your dog in detail, both morphologically and psychologically, as well as their state of health, to determine whether or not they are purebred.
If your dog has more than three ancestors registered in the Spanish Origin Book and meets all the breed requirements, they will give you the pedigree certificate. If none of their ancestors are in this book, then they will inscribe your furry in it as the first in your family tree but you will have to wait two more generations to ensure the purity of its breed and to be granted the pedigree. In order to register it, your furry must have a microchip, since it will be its registration number.
Is it better to have a pedigree dog?
Obtaining a pedigree certificate is only useful if you want to present your dog to beauty and canine morphology contests or if you are a breeder and want to certify that you have purebred litters.
The truth is that selective crossing, which is often carried out between dogs of the same family, causes the dogs to inherit genetic diseases and mutations. That doesn't mean that all breeders breed siblings or father and daughter dogs, but they mostly do breed granddaughter and grandfather dogs. In the case of wanting a pedigree dog, it will be essential to properly inform us about the breeder.
We also want to remember the large number of abandoned and precious dogs that are looking for a family that loves them, so from AnimalWised we encourage you to adopt instead of favoring the trade with animals.
