Foundation Stock Service Program

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Foundation Stock Service (FSS) Program is a breed registry of the American Kennel Club in which breeders can record the birth and parentage of a rare breed they are working to establish in the United States. These dogs provide the foundation stock from which an AKC fully recognized breed might result. These breeds cannot participate in AKC events until at least 150 individual dogs are registered. Thereafter, provisional competition in various events is allowed.

Current FSS Breeds[edit]

As of 2017, 66 breeds are recognized in the Foundation Stock Service (FSS) Program.[1]

Breeds rejected by FSS[edit]

Volpino04.jpg

Volpino Italiano [2]

In the summer of 2006, the AKC/FSS rejected inclusion of the Volpino Italiano, citing similarities with the American Eskimo Dog. The Volpino is recognized internationally by the Fédération Cynologique Internationale and its member kennel clubs. In the United States, the breed is recognized for conformation showing by the United Kennel Club and the American Rare Breed Association.
