Beardie History in the US

Please Pardon Our Dust!

The History section is in the process of being completely redesigned so that you can more easily find information. In the future, we’re hoping to offer more historical photos and (maybe even) videos, as well as more ephemera from the BCCA Historian’s and the AKC’s collections.

Questions? Contact Gail Bisher, BCCA Historian, about the historical materials. Contact the BCCA Webmaster about the website.
