Some Pedigrees in the OFA database are incomplete -- there can be several reasons:
  1. Old records (not updated)
  2. Dog not registered with the AKC (i.e. Canadian Kennel Club-registered dogs)
  3. Complete information was not given on OFA application
  4. Human error (rare but it does happen)
  5. Data not entered yet
