First AKC Pointer:
First pointer registered with the American Kennel Club - "Ace of Spades - AKC 1187". "Breeding records existed in the United States long before the American Kennel Club was founded in 1884, but most were kept by private individuals. In 1886, the AKC decided that a reliable record of pedigrees was vital to the advancement of the sport of purebred dogs, and it began negotiating with the two existing stud books, the American Kennel Register and the National American Kennel Club. Although the former declined the AKC's offer, Dr. N. Rowe (who had published Volumes II and II of the National American Kennel Club Stud Book at his own expense) agreed to hand over the National American Kennel Club's three volumes. Containing a list of 5,397 dogs, these volumes became the basis of the AKC's Stud Book, which has been in continuous publication since 1887." -- AKC, The Complete Dog Book, 19th Edition, Revised, 1997
