The numerical portion of a registration number remains as a permanent and unique identification of the animal.

Ownership of record of an animal may be transferred with the written consent of all Current Owners of the animal.

13. Decisions and Appeals
The Secretary of the AGBA has authority to determine the eligibility of an animal for registration. Proof of parentage through blood typing or DNA typing may be required at the expense of the Current Owner as a condition of registering or continuing the registration of any animal. An AGBA member may appeal a decision of the Secretary to the Board of Directors. The Board’s decision is final.
