Quick question about registering a foreign dog with AKC - Page 1

Hey everybody.

I'm probably overthinking this, but I've got a quick question about registering a foreign dog with AKC.
The dog is a German Shepherd from Austria (Österreich).
As I'm sure many of you know, dogs born in Austria are registered with the "Österreichischer Verein für Deutsche Schäferhunde" (SVÖ), as well as German "Verein für Deutsche Schäferhunde" (SV).
So because the dog is from Austria, it has both a SVO stud book registration number, as well as a SV stud book registration number (e.g. the SZ number).
When I'm filling out the AKC Foreign Registration form, which foreign registry organization and number should I use? I'm assuming the SVÖ because the dog is from Austria, correct?
Thank you.

I have no experience with using a Austrian Kennel Club Registration...But you can go on AKC's web-site and check to see if it's an accepted Kennel Club...accepted by the FCI...I would think it is so my question would be what is needed to register a dog with a Austrian Kennel Club Registration...Did you get an Export Pedigree?
Dogs with SV Registrations can be registered with the AKC but you need a Bescheinigung (Letter of Ownership)…
If you have any other questions you might direct them to AKC...
