North Island Bull Terrier Club
 

About the Committee

 

 NIBTC Committee - 2020
Here is a list of our members & their role in the club with a few words about them.

Pip McVicar (New Plymouth) President 

We live in the Taranaki region. I began showing our first bully in 2005 and recently started breeding bullies under the Bulltanica prefix. The North Island Bull terrier club is a fantastic club full of knowledgeable people who are always happy to help. We run fabulous club events. Please come and join us whether you have a bully, want a bully or just love the breed this club has something for every enthusiast

Lori Prendergast (Auckland) Vice President

I’m Lori Prendergast, and am pleased to be serving as the Vice President of the NIBTC.
The two key facets to my happiness, aside from the obvious family, health and friends, are snow skiing and animals. If I’m not harping on about dogs and cats I’m probably throwing myself down a ski field somewhere.

Always wanting a dog we convinced my parents to get us a family pet and started out with a Shitzu. If there was a dog that suited his breed name , this was it.
After life with this toy dog (menace) I decided as a young adult to venture into real dogs. Hence boxers became my focus. One pet, one show dog and many misadventures with an active and naughty breed. During this time I lived in the South Island and I met many people and dog breeds at shows who otherwise I would never have crossed paths with.

Moving to Auckland 18 years ago for a job, I met John, my husband, , an Aucklander and never left. For the first three years up here I had no animals. Never far from dogdom I would pop out to Ardmore to watch the all breeds and catch up with a couple of friends which is how one more boxer came into my life , who was a true gentlemen of dogs. Thinking his personality and manners would be irreplaceable and having attended some of the NIBTC shows I knew this would be my last boxer. John fell in love with the bullies so I made a deal with my friend who breeds BTs, that if a nice red and white male came to pass we would have one. Once the words spilled from my mouth eight years ago low and behold I landed myself a Bull Terrier that fit the bill. Here started the Bully affair..
What a fabulous , relaxed time I’ve had with my BT , Chuck. He seamlessly fitted into the household, has provided a great deal of humour in our lives.

My involvement with the club provides me a positive distraction from a busy work schedule. Whether it’s a laugh and drink at a show, dog walks around Auckland or a mere “hello, how are you? “ on messenger it has been a pleasure to get involved with this group of people.

I look forward to meeting you at our events.

Linda Flegg (Katikati) Treasurer

My husband and I are lucky to live in a beautiful harbour side location near the small town of Katikati. Nick and I grew up here and love all that our area has to offer, the beach, the bush and our own little piece of paradise. I spend most of my spare time doing “dog stuff” in one way, shape or form. An ideal day for me is chilling at home with the bullies although with life being exceptionally busy we just don’t get to do enough of it. I fell in love with bullies in 1996, when we became the proud owners of Duffy, Ch Boromir Cyberpunk. We now have both bull terriers and miniatures. Over the years I have been involved in all aspects of club administration and am pleased to be back on committee.

Angela Whiteman (Auckland) Secretary/Membership

I live in the Auckland Region in the Rural Town of Patumahoe,   My husband and I have always loved BT’s and owned one before we decided to have kids, she was our furbaby – Shelby, I will always remember her,  she is the one that got me fixed on BT’s! 

I have a Tri-Coloured Mini, BT Ch Boromir Triple Vision from Vortex ROM (Enzo) My sister started showing him as she has had years of experience and I had none, so she showed him for the first couple of All Breed shows. then March 2018 was our specialty show in Rototrua but my sister couldn't make, but it was ok with a bag full of nerves I gave it a go and boy I was surprised I then fell in love with the showing world and made new friends!

The following year our White Mini Girls was born,  Boromir Wytch’s Circle from Vortex (Nova) I was excited to bring her home and make her apart of my team, it has been hectic with two bullies but so rewarding at the same time.  

I was invited to join the committee in 2018 and fast forward a year in 2019 Heidi took me under her wing to teach me the ropes and at the last AGM I was voted in to be their secretary.
