I thought that there used to be a way to search the AKC database and see a complete record for a dog - including owners. Does anyone know if there's still a way to do this for free? I can't seem to find anything but basic information like color and date of birth. I will pay if I have too, but I'd like to check ASAP. As in today. Also, does anyone know how much weight joint ownership on AKC paperwork would carry in an ownership dispute? A contract exists (not formal really, just an agreement for purchase with $ amounts listed, etc) for the purchase of the dog in one name only, but I believe the AKC paperwork has two people listed. All of the veterinary bills are in one name only. The same name on the purchase contract. Thank you in advance.
