Staffordshire Bull Terrier -
Purebred Dogs and Puppies

A member of the Terrier group, The Staffordshire Bull Terrier has a great affection for people. Staffordshires are gentle, affectionate, trustworthy, and loyal dogs.

The Staffie requires a rigorous exercise regime to maintain his ample muscle tone. He will live happily in the city or the country as long as he is given a good physical workout on a frequent basis, but keep them on a leash in public places at all times.

Due to their dog fighting breed history, there is a tendency of aggression towards other dogs, so be forewarned and act accordingly around other dogs.

Please understand that dog aggression is not the same as human aggression in this breed. Any staffie that is aggressive to strange dogs may still be completely trustworthy when around other humans.

The Staffordshire should be of great strength for its medium size and, although muscular, should overall be active and agile. The Staffie is a smooth-coated dog and not recommended for most families because they need firm, experienced handling and consistent training.

Colors: Black, blue, fawn, brindle (often with white markings)
