Animal Inspection is an integral part of the ABGA Ennoblement process. Animals must pass two inspections in order for earned points to be awarded toward ennoblement as outlined in Rule 1000.E.i. In order to pass inspection, an animal must conform to the breed standards. Animals must be ABGA registered and a minimum of 10 months of age at the time of inspection.
Uninspected animals, including deceased animals are not required to pass inspection for earned points to be awarded toward ennoblement as outlined in Rule 1000.E.ii. Uninspected animals seeking ennoblement are required to amass a higher number of total points than inspected animals seeking ennoblement.
