American Staffordshire Terrier Information

A smart and confident dog, the American Staffordshire Terrier has a very athletic build which makes him great for dog sports that require obedience, agility and tracking. Best identified by his blocky, strong head and stocky body, this breed can come in any color with a number of different markings.

Great with people, the American Staffordshire loves to be part of a family and is easy to train. Another plus: The dog requires little grooming and only a moderate amount of exercise. Although you should watch out because they love to chew on things and dig in the ground!
