Although they were created in 19th century Britain to be a small, fast fighting dog, those days are long gone. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier dog breed of today is a fine companion known for their courage, intelligence, and love of children.

History

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier shares a common ancestor - the Bulldog - with the American Staffordshire Terrier, the American Pit Bull Terrier, and the Bull Terrier. They were created in the early nineteenth century to be smaller and faster in the fighting ring, but gentle and friendly with people. They were probably developed by crossing the Bulldog with an ancestor of the Manchester Terrier. The cross eventually evolved into the Staffordshire Bull Terrier we see today.

Personality

Loving towards people from the age of just a few weeks, a true Stafford is never shy or snarling. They are energetic and enthusiastic in everything they do and remain wary even when at rest. The temperament of this breed is described as tough, courageous, tenacious and curious. Their people-pleasing personalities make them good caregivers for their families, but they are less inclined to be protective of their property. However, because they are so attentive and interested in people, they will always alert you to the presence of visitors, wanted or unwanted.
