About Staffordshire Bull Terrier
Country of Origin, History of the breed
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier
was developed in England when the Bulldog
and Mastiff were closely linked. At first
they were large dogs used for bullbaiting
and bearbaiting. By the early 19th century,
dogfighting had gained popularity, so the
Bulldog Terrier was bred to be smaller and
faster. That breed was crossed with the Manchester
Terrier which made it smaller and faster yet.
It still retains much of its bulldog look,
but is now known as the Staffordshire Bull
Terrier and is basically a companion dog.

strong for his size. His broad, round head, short
muzzle, and strong jaws give the appearance of a
very fierce dog. His ears fold, sometimes into a
rose. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier’s straight
legs are set far apart to support his body mass.
Although his eyes are round, he often has them squinted.
The Staffie is broad, his hips
and shoulders are widely set and muscular. His chest
is deep and broad. His body is low, set on fairly
short, very sturdy legs.

Temperament of the Dog
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier
is a strong, proud breed that seems to do everything
at full throttle. Play, work and affection all are
approached with a positive attitude and willingness
to please. Their warm reception of most people is
seen especially with children.
Good watchdogs and guardians,
they will protect their family with little concern
for their own safety. Compatible with most canines
they know, the breed should always be kept on lead
when in parks or unfamiliar areas.
Obedience and agility will keep
this eager pleaser active and reinforce training
that will be necessary for this strong dog. First

it requires a dominant hand of an experienced pet
Be advised that they love to chew
beyond puppyhood and an assortment of tough toys
should be provided to keep them occupied. Squeaking
toys whose squeakers are quick work for their powerful
jaws can become a choking hazard and should be avoided.

Better suited to an indoor
or outdoor lifestyle?
Staffordshire Bull Terriers need
to live indoors. They are sensitive to the cold
and prefer warm climates. Otherwise, prepare for
sweaters and coats to be worn.
They will do okay in an apartment,
but they are very active and playful indoors. They
will need daily walks. A small, securely fenced
yard is nice but not necessary.
Are they suited to homes
A lively dog, Staffordshire Bull
Terriers are excellent with children. They are strong
and muscular so are best suited for older children
and adults while training.
How Active is the Breed?
This is a very active breed. They
run and jump and play indoors even more than outdoors.
A daily walk or jog can help with their exercise
How Much Exercise Does
the Dog Need at every stage of its Life?
Puppies are more energetic than
adults. Apartment life is adequate as they find
exercise in play but they will still need supplemental
walks. They are very active indoors.
Grooming needs are relatively simple
and can be done by most owners at home. A regular
(monthly) bath and brushing with nail clip will
keep its short coat in shape. Rubbing with a piece
of toweling or chamois will make the coat gleam.
The health of the Staffordshire
Bull Terrier is often very good with responsible
breeding but some instances of hereditary cataracts,
hip dysplasia and congenital heart disease are found.
Sensitivity to cold makes them want to live in warm
climates or wear a sweater. Like other bully type
breeds, Staffordshire Bull Terriers often have gas
