If you intend to register him, I would highly recommend starting to get things started now. I bought a does the same way-never registered to the lady I bought from. I had to go back to the original breeder, get signed paperwork, and send that in. Then found that her sire had not been DNA tested because at the time of my doe's birth, it wasn't required. So since sire was deceased, I had to apply for a buck exception. It took *almost a year* to get that, even with the original breeder sending a letter along with the exception paperwork. So once I finally got that, got the registration for the lady I bought her from filled out, I did my girl's paperwork to transfer to me. That was in April of 2020. Still nothing from ABGA and my doe is now deceased.

I learned a hard lesson with all this-I will never purchase an animal who has not been properly registered by any previous owners. All the fees and time I wasted and now my Tina is gone. If I ever get her registration, I might register her daughters. The two I kept are already registered as 50% Kiko and that took all of two weeks to get back.
