ESTABLISHED 1928. Licensed by the American Kennel Club
message from the President
Hello and welcome to the Golden State Bull Terrier Club website!
Established in 1928, our club is the second oldest Bull Terrier regional breed club in the United States.
At one time we were the second largest Bull Terrier club in the world. The great General George S. Patton
is an honorary member of our club! We are extremely proud of our heritage and are excited about the future of our wonderful breed.
The Golden State Bull Terrier Club is dedicated to the welfare of Bull Terriers and educating the public about our breed. In addition to giving generously to Bull Terrier Rescue of Southern California, we have several events throughout the year to promote our cause and dogs. One of particular note is our attendance at the annual American Family Pet Exposition held at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa each April. This is a great place to bring your Bull Terrier for many pets and hugs from an adoring public and to showcase the wonderful character of our breed. I encourage you to attend as it is a very fulfilling endeavor for both humans and Bullies!
In June we sponsor the GSBTC and Bull Terrier Club of America Specialty in conjunction with the Great Western Terrier Association in Long Beach. This is our most important event of the year and our biggest fund raiser and I encourage you to attend this wonderful show. It is an opportunity for you and your Bullies to meet other club members and Bull Terrier enthusiasts. We have one of the best raffles in the fancy, and we also offer three days of great food, beverages and fun.
In December we finish off the year in style by hosting our puppy match in Huntington Beach, followed by the year-end Christmas party where we reflect on another wonderful year of enjoying our incredible dogs.
If you have any questions or need additional information about our wonderful breed please do not hesitate to contact any of our officers. We would be more than happy to assist you in any way.
Bull Terrier Rescue
Are you considering adopting a rescued Bull Terrier?
A Bull Terrier is not for everyone! They require commitment and effort.
Our club has been involved for years in the rescue of purebred Bull Terriers in southern California. These dogs may be from broken homes, were relinquished to shelters by their owners, or picked up as strays. They are Bull Terriers yearning for loving homes, and they make wonderful pets.
Bull Terriers placed through our rescue are:

Achieving Excellence Since 1928
Golden State Bull Terrier Club (GSBTC), established in 1928, is one of the oldest Bull Terrier clubs in the United States. Before GSBTC the Pacific Coast Bull Terrier Club and the Bull Terrier Club of the West were the earliest clubs in California.
GSBTC originally covered all of California. One vice president resided in northern California. Another vice president resided in the East! By 1954 the club was the second-largest Bull Terrier club in the world ‑ larger than the Bull Terrier Club of America and surpassed only by the Bull Terrier Club in the UK.
We are proud of our longstanding relationship with the Great Western Terrier Association, one of the largest and oldest terrier shows in the US. Read more.
