Is this a "must do" with KC registered dogs? When I bought Breeze from her previous owner it wasn't mentioned at all, I have her original transfer of ownership certificate from her breeder to first owner but hadn't considered until now that I could possibly transfer her to my name. OH also has a supposedly KC reg dog that hasn't had any of his papers or the passport he supposedly has handed over - think this is because the original owner rehomed him to someone who was fed up with him in a week and passed onto the first owner's brother, who OH actually got the dog from. Original owner knows who owns him now and has contact numbers but is digging his heels in so either he has something to hide (I have my suspicions) or is just an unhelpful sod. Do the KC actually ask people to transfer ownership or is it a kind of optional extra? I'm not in contact with the person who owned Breeze and don't fancy getting involved with her again, I'm mostly curious.
