NSCA Registry of Merit
The NSCA Registry of Merit is designed to recognize and honor the producing achievements of Shiba Inu sires and dams. By awarding a ROM title to deserving producers, the club is able to maintain a permanent record of Shiba Inu breeding history and can serve as a learning tool in pedigree study and research. This award also acknowledges Shiba Inu breeders showing strength in their breeding programs through these accomplishments. We appreciate that the backbone of any breed is quality breeders. The ROM or ROMX award will be presented to Shiba Inu that have produced a designated number of Champion progeny. This award may be achieved by more than one Shiba Inu per year. The award will be presented at the annual Awards Banquet at the NSCA National Specialty.
The award will be a certificate stating,”20__ Registry of Merit or Registry of Merit Excellent", dog's name, owner’s name (as shown on AKC registration), breeder’s name, National Shiba Club of America. In addition to the certificate, the recipient will receive a ROM pin or bar. Recipient, owner and breeder names will be listed in the Shiba E-News and posted on the NSCA Awards webpage.
Deadline to apply is postmarked by June 1 of each calendar year. Application form may be obtained on the NSCA Awards webpage or through the Awards Committee Chairperson. All application materials may be submitted electronically or hard copy. Provide copies of official documentation with the application to verify authenticity. An incomplete application (including verification documentation) will not be processed.
