Message From The Vice PresidentHello my name is Barry Schutte. I learned about the Leavitt Bulldog back in 2006 and knew from the start this was the dog for me. Normally you read about some breed history but with the Leavitt Bulldog I had the feeling that we could be part of making history. For me it was wonderful to see that the creator of the breed was still involved and very much dedicated to the breed and still was looking for a thousand ways to better his breed. This was something I wanted to be part of. I joined a club with a very diverse group of dog owners, each with their own special skills. I am proud to be part of a group dedicated to breeding the best bulldog out there. I felt very honored when I was asked to accept the office of LBA Vice President. I promise to continue my efforts to better the Leavitt Bulldog. There are always things that can be improved and I hope to work with this great group of breeders and owners for many more years. You all share my dedication to bettering the breed and that is what I like most about the LBA. We have four dogs in the house and own 11 more with wonderful and responsible people. My VP position is a shared one as all my decisions and ideas are carefully discussed with my partner Cindy De Flart.My goal for the club is to encourage the continuation of the great effort everyone is putting in and to try to find ways to get this breed to the next level. By working together, the LBA will continue to improve and refine this wonderful breed.
