a) General. The registered owner of a dog may, whilst the dog is still in his physical possession, apply to place one or more endorsements in a dog’s records and to have the registration certificate annotated accordingly. The endorsements which may be placed as follows: 1. Progeny Not Eligible for Registration. (*R*) Progeny not eligible for registration means that the MNCF will not register any puppies from this dog.(Binds any future owner of this dog/bitch not to breed form this dog/bitch unless the approval of the breeder is obtained. This condition is usually imposed by the breeder either because the puppy is sold at a reduced price with the condition not to be bred from or otherwise to protect any conditions that might have been imposed by the breeder that mating should not be made unless with approved health tested dogs/bitches. In the latter case, it is advised that a contract showing such conditions be signed by both parties. Any progeny (puppies) coming from this dog/bitch WILL NOT be registered unless the breeder has signed for a temporary removal of the Endorsement). Dogs/Bitches who this endorsement registered on them will have the *R* mark after their registered name printed on the Registration and Pedigree certificates.
2 Not Eligible for the Issue of an Export Pedigree.(*X*) (This will bind all future owners of this dog/bitch not to export the dog/bitch in the future)DOES NOT stop YOU from taking your animal abroad. It stops the dog being registered with a foreign kennel club, therefore, making the puppy virtually worthless if bought on behalf of a buyer abroad. (Unfortunately this happens and breeders are horrified to discover their puppies in unsuitable countries). Dogs/Bitches who this endorsement registered on them will have the *X* mark after their registered name printed on the Registration and Pedigree certificates..
b) Conditions: The following conditions shall apply to the placing and removal of endorsements. 1. In order to comply with the MNCF Rules on placing endorsements, the MNCF requires that the dog be in the physical possession of the endorser and that they obtain a written agreement, by means of the form overleaf signed by both parties, and ideally also in the form of a private contract, signed by the both parties to explain why such endorsements are being used.It is helpful to both parties if the contract mentions why these have been placed and under what conditions they would be removed (if at all). This contract must be signed and dated by the purchaser showing that they have been informed of the endorsement prior to or at the date of sale. Even if the breeder chooses not to draw up a full contract, there must still be a document stating which endorsements have been placed, signed by the purchaser 2. When a dog whose registration is endorsed is transferred to new ownership, the endorsement will be maintained. However, the person who placed the endorsement(s) must obtain written and signed confirmation from the new owner(s), or an agent or authorized representative of a new owner(s), at or before the date on which the dog is physically transferred, that the new owner is aware of the endorsement(s), by means of the signed Form overleaf, regardless of whether or not the endorsed registration certificate is available. 3. If this form is not presented to the MNCF prior to the transfer of the dog/bitch on the new owner’s name, then any conflict regarding notice of the endorsement will be resolved in favour of the new registered owner. Therefore it is in the interest of the person doing the endorsements to notify the MNCF by presenting the signed form if he/she wishes the endorsements to be in effect. The endorsement will remain on the register, unless a successful application is made by the new owner of the dog, (only if endorser did not submit this form prior to the transfer of the dog/bitch or upon registration). 4. If the new registered owner of a dog did not have notice of the endorsement, that person may apply to the MNCF who will resolve in their discretion whether or not the endorsement should lapse. Any endorsement may be lifted only with the permission in writing of the endorser or of a person with due authority from the endorser (in the event the endorser cannot give permission due to death or incapacity) or by resolution of the MNCF. 5. This Regulation only apply where the registered owner who originally placed an endorsement on a dogs record, transfers the dog to a new ownership. If subsequent transfers take place, the endorsement becomes a matter between the parties involved. In such cases the registered owner placing the endorsement shall not be responsible if notification of the endorsement is not given to any new owner, and may exercise his right to decide whether the endorsement be maintained or removed subject to (6) below. 6. The MNCF reserves the right to impose, remove or maintain any endorsement, if it deems that any party is being unfair and not abiding by the conditions imposed in their contract. In particular, the MNCF reserves the right to impose an additional endorsement “not eligible for entry in any event held under MNCF Rules and Regulations.
