Annual Futurity Stake
    Updated October 21, 2019

CONDITIONS
1. The Futurity Stake is open only to Members of the American Boxer Club, Inc. and its Member Clubs except as herein otherwise provided.

2. The Futurity Stake is an annual event sponsored by the American Boxer Club, Inc. and is exclusively for the competition of Puppies and Juniors from six months of age and under eighteen months of age. Puppies from six months of age and under twelve months of age shall only be required to compete against each other. Similarly, Juniors from twelve months of age and under eighteen months of age shall only compete against each other. Puppies and Juniors shall not compete against each other except as herein otherwise provided.

3. Bitches may be nominated at any time between the breeding and whelping dates during the six-month periods preceding and following the date of the licensed show. The exact dates for the beginning and ending of these nominations are determined by the actual date of the Futurity or by the management.

4. All Puppies and Juniors are made eligible for competition before they are born. It is only through the Bitch that they are made eligible. Nominations of Bitches must be made AFTER THE BITCH IS BRED and BEFORE THE DATE SHE IS DUE TO WHELP. Only Puppies from nominated Bitches whelped AFTER THE DATE OF NOMINATION are eligible. THE DATE OF THE POST OFFICE CANCELLATION STAMP on the envelope containing the nomination determines, not the date received by the chairman. A fee of $15.00 for each Bitch is to accompany the Futurity Stake nomination form.

5. Fee of $5.00 will complete eligibility on each Puppy's nomination for the Futurity provided said fee is paid ON OR BEFORE the date Puppy reaches four months of age.

6. Puppies must be six months and under twelve months of age on the initially scheduled first day of the licensed show, and Juniors must be twelve months and under eighteen months of age on the initially scheduled first day of the licensed show. There are NO A.K.C. CHAMPIONSHIP POINTS CONNECTED WITH THE FUTURITY.

7. Puppies from litters from nominated Bitches are eligible even though sold to a new owner between the whelping date and the time of the Futurity WHETHER THE NEW OWNER IS A MEMBER OR NOT provided the original entry was made by a member breeder and provided further that all the conditions herein mentioned have been fully complied with.

8. Two Stakes will be created for the Futurity. One exclusively for the Puppy competition and one solely for Juniors. Nomination fees received from the breeders and owners of Bitches and Puppies eligible for competition in the Puppy classes, will become part and parcel of a Stake to be used for the Puppy classes only, and similarly like fees, received from breeders and owners of Puppies subsequently eligible in the Junior classes, will become part and parcel of a Stake to be used for the Junior competition.
