Federación Canófila de Puerto Rico (FCPR)

The Federación Canófila de Puerto Rico (FCPR) is located in Puerto Rico, which is a commonwealth of the USA. The FCPR allows USA born dogs to register with them in order to maintain a registration with an FCI Member Club. The FCPR also issues pedigrees and litter registrations.

A dog born in the USA can obtain a FCPR pedigree. Since this pedigree is with the FCPR, which is an FCI member club, this pedigree allows the dog to be shown in conformation shows, and be bred, in any other of the 80+ FCI Member Countries. This allows for a wide gene pool and gives USA born dogs the opportunity to breed with other dogs of the same breed world wide.

Non-Profit of For Profit?Non-Profit
FCI Member club? Yes
Issues Pedigrees?Yes
Issues Pedigrees dogs imported into the USA?Not if they already possess a pedigree.

If you own a rare breed dog that is not an AKC (or AKC Foundation Stock Service) breed, you can register them with the FCPR in order to ensure their international status. The FCI website states that the dog’s registration must be in the country the dog resides. However, the FCI and the FCPR have an agreement so that dogs living and born in the USA can receive FCPR registrations. FCPR covers all of North America (so, it is my belief, it covers Canada too).

There is no conflict with the FCPR when it comes to showing in conformation events in ARBA and UKC in the USA. This has been verified by email communication with FCPR, the source can be provided if requested.

  3. Hello, I’m doing some research of a couple individuals that have one of my dogs for sale in the U.S., and need information. Please share the location of the FCI home office, phone number, address and email address. I need to submit Georgia State Appeals Court subpoenas, for information on Pricilla Arias and/or Michael Winter who resides in Florida.

    I appreciate any help you can provide.
