Staffordshire Bull Terrier

The first impression of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier is that of strength, intelligence and tenacity. The alert stance, big smile and wagging tail with which he welcomes all human visitors confirm the breed standard’s call to show its “…affection for its friends and children in particular, its off-duty quietness and trustworthy stability.” Although originally bred for the pit over a century ago, the Stafford (as the breed is called to differentiate it from their American cousin), is best known today as a foremost all-purpose family dog with a steady and dependable nature, outstanding athletic ability in the performance sports of agility and flyball, and the intelligence to be successful in the obedience ring.
