At the February 2015  meeting the American Kennel Club (AKC) granted the Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka Foundation Stock Service (FSS) status. This means that Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonkas and their litters may now be registered in the AKC FSS and that Bolonkas may compete in AKC FSS shows. This is the first step toward earning full AKC recognition for the Russian Tsvetnaya Bolonka breed.

The registry books for NATBC are closed and all applications must now go through the AKC. Download the AKC forms here: Register a Bolonka dog or Register a Bolonka Litter.
