Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Introduction

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier, also known as the Bulldog Terrier, the Old Pit Bull Terrier, the Bull-and-Terrier, the Pit Dog, the Brindle Bull, the Patched Fighting Terrier, the Staffordshire Terrier, the Staffordshire Pit Dog, the “Staffy Bull” or simply the “Staffie,” is a dog with an old history and a big reputation. It is known for is intelligence, trustworthiness, tenacity and tremendous courage. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is affectionate, steady and especially fond of children, earning its nickname the “Nanny Dog.” However, without proper training and control, the Staffie can display aggression towards other dogs and animals. The Kennel Club (England) calls this its tendency to “get its retaliation in first.” The Staffy Bull was accepted into the Stud Book of the American Kennel Club in 1974 and gained full acceptance into the Terrier Group the following year.

The mature Staffy Bull should be 14 to 16 inches at the withers. Males should weigh 28 to 38 pounds, with bitches ranging from 24 to 34 pounds. The overall appearance of this breed is one of smoothness and great strength for its somewhat small size. Its short coat can be red, fawn, white, black, blue or brindle, or any of these colors combined with white. Black-and-tan or liver colors are disqualifications under the American breed standard.
