Courageous and strong, the American Staffordshire Terrier (Am Staff)’s athletic build and intelligence make him ideally suited to many dog sports such as obedience, agility, tracking and conformation. He is often identified by his stocky body and strong, powerful head. The breed’s short coat can be any color, and either solid colored, parti-colored or patched.

Until the early 19th century, the Bulldog used for bullbaiting in England was more active and longer-legged than the breed as we know it today. It is thought that the cross of this older Bulldog and a game terrier breed created the Staffordshire Terrier. Originally called the Bull-and-Terrier Dog, Half and Half or Pit Dog, it became known as the Staffordshire Bull Terrier in England. When accepted for AKC registration in 1936, the name changed to American Staffordshire Terrier to reflect the heavier American type and to distinguish them as separate breeds.e is China, and I am a American Staffordshire Terrier .

I BELIEVE ALL DOGS OF THIS BREED ARE INTELIGENT, STRONG, CAREING, AND PROTECVTIVE. IF ANYONE FEELS THEY ARE A DANGER, THEY NEED TO OWN ONE OF THESE. ITS ALL IN THE TRANNING AND ENVIROMENT THESE DOGS ARE BROUGHT UP. NOWAY ARE THEY DANGEROUS IN ANY WAY.

My boy pit looks a lot like her, almost identical except he has a patch over one of his eyes, and they were born only 6 days apart! How funny!
