Butler County Kennel Club was shocked and saddened to learn of the untimely death of long time member Jim Martin.  Jim was stabbed to death in his home on New Year’s Eve morning.

He had been an active member of BCKC for over 40 years, serving on its board in the past. An avid handler of Manchester Toy Terriers, Jim and his late partner Bob Double were fixtures in the western PA dog show scene.  Jim later became a Sporting Group judge.

He also assumed the reins of Memorial Day Weekend Cluster chair after Lee Herr left to become an AKC rep.   Everyone knew Jim on sight as he was usually making his rounds on a golf cart at the shows.

The local dog show community is deeply affected by his sudden loss.

The Butler County Kennel Club is dedicated to the promotion of excellence in all-breed conformation.

BCKC was founded in November 1939. We are an AKC member club based in Butler, but our members are from all around Butler County.

We have been very active in conformation and hold two licensed AKC shows a year.
