Effective January 1, 2019: Scorebooks must be acquired from the dog’s specific AWDF member breed club or an all-breed sporting club (Mondioring, LV/DVG, AHBA) to specify the breed in the scorebook. Otherwise the breed ID will be listed as MIX BREED. Procedures established by the individual member organizations for documenting the breed of the dog must be followed. If there is no breed club for a specific breed of dog, any AWDF member breed or sport club can issue a scorebook to that dog provided that proof of registration with an FCI recognized organization is provided.
This means (for example) that after January 1, 2019, a Rottweiler must obtain their scorebook from USRC, LV/DVG, USMRA or AHBA to have the dog listed as a Rottweiler. If the scorebook is issued by AWMA, UDC, etc. it would be listed as a mix. Scorebooks issued before January 1, 2019 can continue to be used; there is no need to obtain a new book.
