The American Kennel Club (AKC) publishes monthly a listing of first-time sires and dams. They list the name of the dog, its date of birth, sex, AKC registration number, and color. Also, for each dog the stud book gives the name of the sire and dam and their AKC numbers and the dates they first appear in the AKC Stud Book. To complete the initial entry, the listing gives the name(s) of the owner and breeder. Here is an example of a complete listing:
|Barbary's Coastin Sea Velvet (B)
WF942582 12-14-86 BLK
|CH Jorgensen's Ranger Radar
|Briney Deep's Sea Genie
|L Gates & B Becker/B Becker

The name of the dog is Abigail Of Nippers Harbor. Her AKC number is WP775214-05. Her sire is Hugybear's Old Jake and her dam is Lady Kate. The numbers appearing in parentheses are the OFA hip clearance numbers. If they had no OFA hip and elbow clearances, then the notation (-) would appear. When there is an elbow clearance, the number is prefixed by EL. The owner, at the time of listing, is D Dudas. The breeder is J Allmandinger. The AKC Stud Book does not include complete first names. Using the current Newfoundland Club of America (NCA) membership roster an attempt to determine if the owner and/or breeder where members of the NCA at the time of listing. When an owner or breeder is an NCA member, their name appears in blue. This dog does not have a hip nor an elbow OFA clearance. The AKC studbook in which this dog appears is the August (08), 2001. This is expressed as 200108 and makes sorting the data keyed to the studbook entry easy.
