AKC approves outcrossings for several breeds...

The AKC Board took the following actions at its July meeting:

"Lhasa Apso Stud Book
"The Board VOTED to approve a request from the American Lhasa Apso
Club (ALAC) to expand the Lhasa Apso gene pool by opening the stud
book to a limited number of Lhasa Apsos from native Tibetan Stock.
Staff will work with the ALAC to develop the procedures to include the
Gompa Lhasa Apso dogs in Open Registration as well as establishing the
breed in the AKC Foundation Stock Service for dogs imported from the
country of origin lacking complete pedigrees in accordance with the
request by ALAC."

"The Registration of Low Uric Acid Dalmatians
"The Board reviewed the results of a vote by the membership of the
Dalmatian Club of America (DCA). By a 55-45% margin, the membership
voted in favor of registering these dogs.
Following a motion by Dr. Newman, seconded by Dr. Smith it was VOTED
(unanimously) to authorize AKC Staff to develop procedures for the
registration of these dogs. The procedures will be developed in
consultation with the Board of the DCA. To ensure that the
introduction of the Low Uric Acid dogs into the registry is an
informed, voluntary decision, the registration numbers for the Low
Uric Acid Dalmatians and their descendents will have a letter
indicator as part of the registration number."
