Staffordshire Bull Terrier  


Enthusiasts of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier can apply many adjectives to them: brave, devoted, enthusiastic, friendly, intelligent, loyal, obedient, clean, etc. One would think we were describing boy scouts and not the breed with the tarnished image. They were originally developed by coal miners in Staffordshire, England that combined the Bulldog with small local terriers in search of compact, speedy dog. The breed we have today embodies these traits along with smarts, geniality, affection, humor, and sturdiness of character and build. They are devoted and lovable family member and especially love children. They do best with an experienced owner who will provide firm, positive, and consistent training in order to bring out the best in their dog. Their short, sleek coat requires little maintenance.
