1. FCI/SV Recognized Registration
2. Proof of Microchip or Tattoo
3. Pedigree (Copy)
4. Scorebook (Recommended but not required)
My boy has everything ready to go, except for possibly the first one. He is USCA and AKC registered. Does the AKC count as a FCI recognized registration? I tried to find information on this, but got mixed information. I would greatly appreciate the help!

As for a UScA registration, it is meaningless except for the UScA. At this point, it is only a money raising gimmick although they might tell you otherwise. They are not the recognized breed club for the GSD in the United States. Their registration program, started many years ago, in conjunction with an SV partial recognition was an attempt by the UScA to supplant the GSDCA as the official breed club in the US. At the time, it had the blessing of SV President Peter Messler and Leistungswart Rudenauer. Their attempt failed and it is doubtful that their registration would be recognized by the FCI as proof of ownership.

Furthermore, if you have some supporting document from whomever sent the xrays to the SV, such as the UScA or GSDCA, you certainly will have no problem.
In any case, copies should be sufficient. Remember, however, you do need at least a copy also of the AKC or SV registration showing you are the owner, assuming you are.

Assuming you are talking about SV style shows and not AKC or KC type shows, entrants must submit copies of the relevant documents as well as an entry form so that the show catalog can be made. The catalog will have the dog's name, date and country of birth, registration number, chip number, working titles if any, KKL if any, father's name and registration number and titles, ditto the mother, breeder's name, and owner's name, address, telephone and email. All of this information must be provided on the entry form.
Hence there is no need for anybody to quote anything.

In the States, very few so called AKC breeders have introduced German lines for many, many generations, perhaps since WWII and they do not want them. The structure is very different and a dog from Germany rarely has a chance of doing well in the AKC ring. Very occasionally there is a judge who is interested in German dogs but there are not too many. Perhaps it is like the "Alsatian" situation in GB...
