Sorry, mixed breeds are not able to be registered with the AKC.

Nope. Sorry, but mixed breeds cannot be papered for breeding purposes. And if the father of your dog is not papered- your dog cannot be papered. Both parents must have full, valid papers in order for their offspring to be papered.
Get her spayed. She'll be happier and healthier!
The posters before me are correct.
In order for a dog to be registered with the AKC, the dog must be a purebred and both the dam and sire (mother and father) must be AKC registered as well. The dam and sire *can* be registered by a foreign registry that the AKC acknowledges as well, such as the Canadian Kennel Club, for example.
Mixed breed dogs can never get AKC papers because the American Kennel Club only acknowledges established breeds and not mixed-breed offspring.
There are some "registries" that people have started making up so that people with mixed breeds and dogs with questionable heritage can still have "papers". Those registries mainly cater to the backyard breeders and puppy mills who sucker unsuspecting buyers into believing their dogs are pedigreed because they come with "papers".
Two of those registries are the Continental Kennel Club (CKC) and the American Hybrid Canine Club (AHCC) which gives papers to "designer dogs" (mixed breeds).
