Several PNBC members, including Jim and Nancy Boulton, Fred and Jeanne Zalud, Joanne and Jerry Shierk, Bob and Casey Williams and Chick and Al Carlson, encouraged the club to retract the statements and correct the issue by publishing an apology. Ham Webert assisted by endorsing that action, along with Pat Thompson.
The AKC accepted the apology published in the newsletter but advised the club that it would have to start over again by holding AKC "A" and "B" sanctioned matches and work its way back to seeking the AKC's approval to hold specialty shows.
The AKC also required the PNBC to change its name. It was then that the Bulldog Club of Greater Seattle was founded.
Some other local breeders and fanciers including John and Rose West and Peg and Harry Revell joined the newly formed BCGS, and the club enjoyed holding the required matches.
The BCGS held its first official specialty show during the mid-1970s.
The Seattle club hosted its annual specialty show during the 2007 BCA National Specialty Show Week at Spokane, Washington, from September 30 through October 6.
Mrs. Jeanne Zalud and Mr. Jerry Shierk helped to provide material for this brief history.
