Good With Dogs:⬛⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜
The American Staffordshire Terrier is a people-bred dog. This means they were bred to be extremely loyal and loving to their owners, but wary of other dogs. Since the Staffy's linage includes breeds that also created the "Pit Bull Terrier", a lot of the Bully breeds share similarities in their temperament and looks. The American Staffordshire Terrier should be "over" socialized, meaning that owners need to take extra measures to socialize their dogs as puppies. Meeting 30 new dogs a month minimum, while as many people as possible. Though some members of the breed can do well with other dogs, some do not. It all has to do with training, socialization and the personality of the dog.
This breed is very hair to pair up. Because they are bred to have a strong bond with their owners and be wary of other dogs and strangers. Since you have a female, and she is of adult age you first need to find out if your female will allow another dog in the home. If you've had other dogs over for more than just a few hours at a time and your female has not had her nose bent out of shape because of it, then that is a good sign. First do your research on your own dog. If she has not done well with another dog around for only a few hours or possibly a couple of days, then I would not suggest getting another dog. Things will only end up in a fight. However, if your dog does well with other dogs and doesn't mind having a strange dog in the home for a few days, then you might be able to bring another dog into your home. Because she is a female, I would suggest a male. This will give you what is called a "bonded pair" because dogs are naturally bred to match up and be mated pairs, they tend to do well with an animal of opposite gender. However we want to cut down on the amount of bad litters, so hopefully your female is already spayed. Now, since she is 8 years old, I would not suggest you bring a puppy into the home. This would be a lot of energy to force upon your girl. Look at some local rescues and see if you can find a calm, young adult male. Preferably somewhere between 1 - 4 years old.
The breed standard does not allow for a Staffy to have light eyes. In the show ring, that would be a default and the dog would not go on to another show. For people whom are not breeding to better the breed through the set standard put together by the AKC, UKC, or CKC, ect. then the eye color 'green' has been known to show up in light coat colored dogs.
If you have COPD and have problems with dog hair/dander, then I would reconsider the Staffy breed. They are not considered a hypoallergenic breed of dog. The breed sheds on an average scale and the short hair stick into furniture and clothing quite easily. No matter if it is the 2-year-old, or the 3-month-old, bring your Cockapoo with you to meet the dogs. The two dogs will tell you which one's get along the best. All interactions between the two dog should be supervised at all time because of the size difference of the two dogs. As well as Staffy's are hard players and can be pushy with other dogs.
