At it's Febuary 10,1981 meeting the board of directors of The American Kennel Club APPROVED the registration of 2 NUA Dalmatians.
By the 5th generation in 1981 they were typical of the Dalmatian breed, Dr Schaible convinced the American Kennel Club to allow registration of a dog & bitch.
The then Amercan Kennel Club president, William f. Stifel stated that "If there is logical, scientific way to correct genetic health problems associated with certain breeds traits and still preserve the integrity of the breed standard, it is incumbent upon The American Kennel Club to lead the way." The Dalmatian Club of America's (DCA) board of directors, supported this decision, however it quickly became highly controversial among the club members, causing the AKC to put the registration on 'hold' and this is how it still stands today! So because of all the politics involved in the US, it is OUR Kennel Club and the French Kennel Club that as ACTUALLY lead the way!
(If you think That the Dalmatian club of America knows best.
Then you should also know that this same club upholds the right of it's members to breed from unilaterally deaf dogs & blue eyes!?) Both of which, have NEVER been used in NUA breeding!

"(The Backcross Project in the Dalmatian breed was an excellent example of a
breed outcross well-purposed and superbly integrated; but the reaction of the
breed club was deplorable.)"
