Amy S. Krogman, the president of the Bull Breed Coalition Registry (BBCR), has been a dog lover for her entire life. From a very early age, she was involved in dog exhibitions and competed in sanctioned hunts. While she is currently involved mostly with Shortybulls, she has a strong love for dogs of all breeds and considers them to be one of the true passions of her life.
Amy’s professional experience with dogs began over 20 years ago. She obtained a degree in Veterinary Technology from UNL University in Nebraska, and since then she has built up a tremendous amount of experience in the animal health and veterinary medicine field. In the years after achieving her degree, she continued to handle dogs in competition events (such as night hunts) and started exhibiting dogs in the conformation ring in 1986. As the years went by, she participated in many aspects of the sport as a conformation judge and bench show judge (for scent dogs), led an area 4H dog club, led obedience training and is involved with the KWDC club in Kansas.
In the late 1990s, the Shortybull breed began its development in rural Kansas. Since that time, Amy has worked tirelessly to introduce this smaller healthy bulldog breed to the public. In 2004, the BBCR was established as a way to maintain the historical record of the Shortybull. With the encouragement of the other dog lovers in the community, the BBCR expanded its pedigree database to include 5 more bully breeds in 2011.
Over the years, the BBCR has grown and added new influential members, including Chas Listenbee and Kamerion Wimbley. In 2010, Listenbee was named Chief Operating Officer, which included the responsibility of relocating the BBCR headquarters to Lawrenceville, Georgia. Amy holds the office of president and CEO and the basic ideas of the organization remain the same —a love of all dogs everywhere and a passion to eradicate misrepresentation of bully type dog and other bull breeds in the United States.
