I have tried their names & their DN numbers in search to find the dog. Without any luck..
Could this be because they were never entered in the database?
For example my male puppies parents cannot be found by name or #, but have AKC registration. (Which I saw when I bought the puppy along with both parents on site)
Those dogs parents all come up in the data base except the Dam of my puppies father.
In fact this Dam has only a first name, no last & cannot be found.
The rest of the pedigree is in the data base.
Is this normal not to find registered AKC dogs in the pedigree database?

GSDvonJägersHouse Dogs need to be entered on the PDB regardless of Breed Registry in order to be found.
Dogs need to be proven to be Purebred dogs to be on the PDB.

A big problem with finding dogs in PDB are dogs with special characters in their names, like the apostrophe. Some computers print the apostrophe with a straight tail and some with a curly tail, Some people use German vowels with umlauts, and others use a few special characters from other languages.
The best thing to do when looking for a name is to only enter part of the name, stopping just before these special characters, For example when looking for Smith's kennel. just type in Smith and see what comes up. If you can spot thse correct dog, then you know how the name is stored in the computer.
And when looking for a sire or dam, always be editing the progeny, Do not try to enter the sire and dam from the progenys front screen.
If this make no sense, send me a note and I will try to help you. I have spent half my life trying to find dogs, and have gotten quite good at it.
