The Harlequin Pinscher Association, herein known as the "HPA", was founded in 2007 for the sole purpose of establishing a Registry in which to register, document and database pedigrees of 7+ documented generations of patterned Miniature Pinschers, known as Harlequin Pinschers, and the regular Miniature Pinschers used in an HPA breeding program.
While the dogs used to reach the 7th Generation of documented development of the Harlequin Pinscher were originally databased in the American Pedigree Registry files they are also in the HPA database now.
HPA is the only approved registry for Harlequin Pinschers by the Founding Breeder.
HPA has the only database back to the original founding dogs of the re-developed Harlequin Pinscher.
Only HPA can give you the True Accurate Certified Pedigrees back to the founding Harlequin Pinschers.
HPA is the only known registry which requires ongoing Genetic Clearances to insure the health of the Harlequin Pinscher Breed now and into the future.
(*Note - Dogs not being used for litter registration request (*pet only) may be registered without required genetic clearances but are not eligible to register litters.)
HPA is one of only 2 known Dog Registries which puts Pedigrees right on the Registration Certificate itself without charging extra fees.
HPA is dedicated to maintaining a true and accurate database of the Harlequin Pinscher as well as preserving the health of the breed through required genetic testing.
