Breeds recognised on a provisonal basis

FCI breeds recognised on a provisional basis are not eligible for the CACIB until they are recognised on a definitive basis, but are eligible for the FCI titles (Winner of the World Dog Show, Winner of the Section Shows – Europe, Asia and the Pacific, Americas and the Caribbean). In addition, the pedigrees issued to the dogs of these breeds have to carry the FCI logo.
