The first meeting of what is now named the Bulldog Club of South Florida was held in November 1975 in Rosemary Logan’s home. Those present included: the Logan family, Dave and Judy Wilkerson, Denise Young, Tom and Regina Brown, Anne Slifka, and Jackie and Henry Williamsen.
The club was originally named the Bicentennial Bulldog Club of South Florida. Its first fun match at Fort Lauderdale was held in early 1976, the bicentennial year of the United States. All-breed judge Michelle Billings judged her final match in this assignment.
The BCSF held two more fun matches and applied to the AKC to hold a "B" match which was granted. In 1978, the club applied to become a member of Bulldog Club of America, Division VIII. and the application was accepted.
In the fall of 1980, the club hosted the first BCA Division specialty show ever held south of Atlanta, and the show drew major championship points. In those days that was not an easy proposition, as South Florida had a decided lack of bulldog exhibitors. It was not unusual to find very few bulldogs entered at the local shows.
