These dogs are currently ckc registered, once the dads paperwork comes in you will be allowed to register akc. The mother is already dual registered. All the boston terriers in my family have been dual registered. We have owned Bostons for about 15 years. I have 3 females and 2 males left. The Dad to these dogs is extra large, he is very muscular and tone. These puppies are already being kennel trained and taken out on a regular basis. Boston Terriers's are the first dogs to be recognized by the american kennel club.
