Staffordshire Bull Terrier Information

Staffordshire Bull TerrierThe Staffordshire Bull Terrier is many things – playful, smart, gentle, brave, a little bit hard-headed, always charming. Their history began centuries ago in England. The breed was put to the test in British fighting pits in the 1800s, but luckily those days are over. Compared to his cousin in the United States, the American Staffordshire Terrier, this guy is smaller, packing in lots of muscle into his 24-38 pound body. The breed comes in many different colors.

As a pet, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is sweet and family-oriented, bravely watching over his loved ones. He is moderately active – a little exercise goes a long way.
