Overview
The American Staffordshire Terrier has triggered much debate about his origins. It is said that the American Staffordshire Terrier and the American Pit Bull Terrier are one in the same breed. The American Staffordshire Terrier is indeed the name of the show strain, while the fighting dog strain is labeled the American Pit Bull Terrier. These two dogs are recognized by different registries as different breeds, although they are considered the same breed. They are bred to have the same qualities and the same build.
Character
The American Staffordshire Terrier has retained an undeserving reputation for many years being that they are commonly used in the so-called "sport" of dog fighting. This breed however is very devoted, gentle, and loving. The American Staffordshire Terrier makes a wonderful companion for a dominant and experienced owner, and they make excellent guard dogs being that they are protective of their territory, family, and home.
Temperament
The American Staffordshire Terrier has a very even and stable temperament, which makes him a very reliable companion. This breed does do well around small children, but should not be left unsupervised around them, as this is a very powerful and rambunctious breed. The American Staffordshire Terrier can get along exceptionally well with other dogs, however the fighting strain of dogs should never be placed in a home with another dog as they still retain that aggressiveness. Proper research is necessary to be sure of the temperament of the dog.
Care
The American Staffordshire Terrier does not require much grooming at all being very shorthaired. They shed very little, however depending on the climate they can become an average shedding breed. To remove dead or loose hairs, a rub down with a harsh and dry towel, or a specially made rubber glove would be sufficient. Dry shampooing is recommended as opposed to bathing, however an occasional bath is all right.
Coat
The Staffordshire Terrier has a very short coat that requires minimal, to sometimes no grooming. The coat should always be short and straight, being the same length all over the body of the dog. The coat of this breed should remain stiff to the touch and be very close lying to the body of the dog. The coat should be glossy and never be soft or silky.
Training
The American Staffordshire Terrier is a very high energy and vivacious breed making training a little difficult. Being intelligent yet very willful and stubborn, this breed requires consistent and firm training from a dominant handler to prevent dominance issues that could arise. Firm correction is a must as this is a very powerful and willful breed. Obedience classes at an early age are definitely recommended for someone experienced with the American Staffordshire Terrier breed.
Activity
The American Staffordshire Terrier requires quite a bit of exercise being so energetic and lively. This breed does best with at least a medium sized yard and does not do well in apartment life as they have the tendency to become bored and can become very destructive at the expense of the owner. At least two hours of exercise per day is required for this extremely lively breed. Long walks and/or runs are recommended as well as free roam in a fenced area.
