Overview
Originating in England, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier was bred for bull, bear, and lion baiting. The aforementioned "blood-sports" were officially eliminated in 1835 when Britain introduced animal welfare laws. However, "blood-sport" proponents began using this breed for organized dog fighting. Today, with their "blood-sport" history behind them, this breed has become a stable and popular family pet.
Character
Often referred to as the Staffie, this muscular and stocky breed exudes strength, courage, and athletic ability. They are bold, tenacious, and alert. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier has a fearless, protective, and determined nature and is extremely agile. Their most distinguishing and striking features are their broad head and expressive face.
Temperament
Despite this breed's beginnings, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is renowned today for their reliability as a companion and family pet. They thrive on human contact and are extremely loving, devoted, and loyal. This breed is dependable gentle and reliable with children, and for this reason were nicknamed the Nanny Dog. They are exceedingly protective of their family and make excellent guardians and watchdogs. They are not suited for homes with other dogs or household pets they have not been raised with. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is not recommended for the novice dog owner.
Care
This breed requires minimal grooming. An occasional firm, bristle brushing and bath will suffice. They do not tolerate cold climates but also have a tendency to become over-heated quickly. They are best suited as indoor pets. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is prone to cataracts, hip dysplasia, luxating patella, and epilepsy. They are also very susceptible to fleas and ticks.
Coat
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier has a soft, sleek, dense, and short coat that lays close to the body. The color of the coat may be blue, brindle, black, red, or fawn. There may or may not be white markings. This breed is an average shedder.
Training
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier requires a dominant owner and needs early and intense socialization and obedience training. They are easily housetrained. It is absolutely crucial that all training of this breed be done in a positive, consistent, patient, and firm manner. They excel in agility and obedience competition and have had success as therapy dogs.
Activity
Due to their athletic nature, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier needs vigorous daily exercise. It is imperative that they be securely leashed or harnessed in all public outings such as walking, jogging, or hiking. They benefit from off-lead run time in a securely fenced yard and greatly enjoy play sessions with their family. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier will do okay in an apartment dwelling provided they are given sufficient exercise, companionship, and stimulation.

The nose color of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier....black or red....does it matter?

No, the nose color of a Staffy does not matter. Some people refer them to as red-nose or blue-nose; but it does not mean anything other than a coloration for the breed. No one is better than the other.

Do Staffordshire Bull Terriers have web feet?

Yes, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier does have some webbing in between the dogs toes. However, it only goes about halfway compared to water-breeds such as the Newfoundland, Golden Retriever, English Spaniel that have webbed toes all the way to the ends of their toes

My partner and I have a male Staffordshire Bull Terrier, he is three and an amazing dog, so loveable. We are considering getting a new dog, a Shih Tzu, as our dog loves playing with a friend's Bichon, they are great together. I'm just wondering if anyone has had a Staffy and then got another dog? If so, were they ok? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

I have an 80 lb 3-year-old Staffy, he is an amazing, affectionate big guy. He has a 15 lb Chiweinnie brother. I really haven't had any issues with them not getting along. My Chiweinnie is the aggressive one and tries to start fights with my Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He is very patient and we have had no issues. My big guy loves babies.

This is my second rescue Staffordshire Bull Terrier (purebred). We have 2 Chihuahuas and one can be bossy and she ignores him. She is the most loving dog and wonderful with kids. My first Staffie was a male and he was the same, the best temperament. You have to let them know who is boss but it doesn't take much if you are consistent. You must be consistent. I walk mine through the park once a day on a leash. They love to run. I love this breed and will continue to always own a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

You do not have a "Staffy" if your dog is 80lbs! You have an American Staffordshire Terrier (AmStaff) or an American Pitbill Terrier or American Bully. Staffies (Staffordshire Bull Terriers) are and English bred dog ranging from 25-35lbs. You should know the breed of dog you have, please, temperaments are different.

Is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and a Pit Bull the same? If not, what is the difference?

Staffordshire Bull Terrier is an AKC recognized breed. However, Pit Bull (in Canada) is not, but rather a catch-all name for several breeds and mixed breed dogs sharing some of the same characteristics, such as looks and shape. A Bull Terrier, for example, has a longer face (Don Cherry's dog Blue is a Bull Terrier). American Staff is a larger dog, commonly referred to as a Pit Bull.

Staffordshire Bull Terrier is an English Bred dog 25-35 lbs. fully grown. Not usually dog aggressive and very, very much people lovers. Not a dog for property protection at all. The American Stafforshire Terrier is an American bred dog 40-60lbs. They are the AKC's version of the American Pit Bull Terrier (ADBA & UKC) also a larger dog. They are more often dog aggressive, while still people friendly.
