The History of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier
The Staffy was originally bred to be a fighting dog in England in 1835. They share a common ancestor, the Bulldog with the American Staffordshire Terrier, the American Pit Bull and the Bull Terrier. They were created in the early 19th century to be smaller and faster in the fighting ring with other dogs but gentle and friendly towards people.
The Staffy was most likely developed by crossing the Bulldog with an ancestor of the Manchester Terrier. This cross eventually evolved into the Staffordshire Bull Terrier breed we know and love today.
In the USA the breed was generally only enjoyed as a companion dog. It was recognised formally as a breed in 1975 by the American Kennel Club.
What do Staffordshire Bull Terriers look like?
The Staffy is a small to medium size dog with a relatively wide and slightly longer than they are tall, giving them a strong yet stocky appearance. The most striking features of the Staffy are their big muscles, broad head and wide jaws which they love to turn into big grins! They are relatively heavy compared to their size, weighing up to 40 pounds and standing up to 19 inches tall. This gives them the impression of being bigger than they really are!
This dog appears to embody strength, power and aggression but is agile, quick and oh so gentle, dynamic and loving with humans and children. They resemble the other bull breeds such as Pit Bulls but have very distinct characteristics that set them apart such as size and ear shape.
Their coat is short and sleek and comes in a wide variety of colours and patterns including red, fawn, white, black, blue or any of these colours with white markings. The Staffy’s coat is also easy to look after which is a huge bonus!
What are the personality and traits of a Staffordshire Bull Terrier?
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is known for its love of people and trustworthy nature. They are courageous, loyal and, thanks to their fighting background, totally fearless. Their greatest desire is to spend time with humans doing whatever their people are doing, whether that is being a couch potato, running errands or playing sports. They can be destructive if left to their own devices for too long!
The Staffy has also been nicknamed the nanny dog due to its love for children. They have endless amounts of patience and tolerance for little humans, giving them an amazing reputation among young families. They may not be as friendly with other dogs that they do not know due to remnants of his origins as a fighting breed. They were bred to be aggressive towards other dogs but gentle and loving with humans.
When properly socialised they are never shy or snarly towards people. They are enthusiastic and always on high alert! They are tough and tenacious and always curious. They make amazing caretakers for families, but are not as protective over the property!
Staffies are highly intelligent and freethinkers who like to do what they want, not always what they are told! They have bounds of energy and love to play but also love snuggling up for a snooze on the bed all the same.
For dog owners who understand Staffy’s sensitive nature and can be patient yet firm during their younger years of training, they can end up with one of the finest dog companions around.
