The Gompa Lhasa Apso Preservation
Program's Registry is comprised of two components;
an internal database and and an external registry.
database contains records, including UKC#s, of all
dogs being used to perpetuate the genetic lineage
of the Gompa Lhasa Apso and their offspring.. With a
comprehensive set of health and physical
characteristics categories, the database is designed
for analysis and study and tracks individual dogs
through the course of their lives.
External registry procedures
were developed in 2001 with assistance from the Head
Registrar of the Society for the Perpetuation of the
Desert-Bred Saluki, an AKC recognized domestic
registry. Procedures follow guidelines recently
approved by AKC for use of the Foundation Stock ServiceŽ by the American
Tibetan Mastiff Association for recording imports not currently registrable with
the American Kennel Club.
