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.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

This is my second rescue Staffie (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.

No, they are medium. A True Staffie is anywhere from 22-37 lbs. They have a nice size head. Some people tend to think mine is still a pit bull pup. Great Dogs!!!

I thought it was nothing, but it has seemed to grow a bit and become bigger. It doesn't seem to be harming him at the moment, but will this affect him later. And what is it?

Recently I was told by a breeder to move his crate as he's got domineering over it & was barking & going for us while he's in it. So we moved it & he's got worse, we put him in the crate when people come to the house & gradually let him out when he's calmed down to say hello. I'm really worried about his behaviour when he's in the crate now, he's bit me & my husband while he's been in it

Staffies don't respond well to crates. They suffer from seperation anxiety and are naturally very sociable dogs who crave human affection. I have a ten year old staffie bitch and I never needed to use a crate. She has a basket and she's locked in the kitchen at night or when we go out and she's always been fine. I would remove the crate completely. Your dog obviously hasn't responded well to it. You need to train your staffie to return to their basket if they are getting over fussy with guests.

You need to develop a relationship with your dog. He or she needs love as well as training. You to need to be trained in how to teach your dog. Take the time with him or her. It is your friend a good friend treat your dog as so. ith love and time he or she will change. How would you act if someone would lock you up and you not know why ... Think about it yourself

I have a staffy and a cat. I think he would probably of killed it when he was younger if he wasn't trained out of it, now they can often be found sleeping next to each other. My best advice would be tell the new one to never, ever run; staffies love a chase! ;)
