BRIEF OVERVIEW OF ORGANIZATION:
When the English immigrated to America, their Bulldog came with them. A few dedicated bulldog fanciers formed the Bulldog Club of America in 1890 and it was incorporated under the laws of the State of New York on November 29, 1904. The purpose for which the club was formed was well stated by the framer of its Constitution.
The Bulldog Club of America is committed to the preservation of the noble bulldog breed by maintaining a
standard of excellence for the guidance of breeders, owners, and judges. We seek to improve the breed by encouraging efforts aimed at producing sound and healthy dogs with the degree of excellence established in the standard for the breed. We also seek to encourage interest in the competitive public showing of bulldogs in conformation and performance events under the auspices of the American Kennel Club. The BCA works for the general good of breeders, owners and exhibitors of bulldogs.
UNIQUE STORY ANGLE:
Each year the Bulldog Club of America holds a national specialty show and the National Specialty Best of Breed winner is selected by a respected judge of the bulldog breed. This year has a very large entry competing for that title. Bulldogs and their owners from across the United States and several from foreign countries will be competing this year.
