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.

Does your Staffordshire Bull Terrier bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

If your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet.
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppy. Consider crate training if you need to adapt your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy.

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.

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.

My 8-year-old Staffordshire Bull Terrier has a lump at the start of his tail. 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. What is it?

Your vet is the only one that can help you in this situation. It could be cancer.

My Staffy is nearly 2, he has a crate for when we are out & at night. Recently I was told by a breeder to move his crate as he has become domineering over it and was barking and going for us while he's in it. So we moved it however, he has gotten 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 and my husband while he's been in it.

Staffordshire Bull Terriers 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 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 such. With 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.
