American Staffordshire Terrier Characteristics
The American Staffordshire Terrier is a breed that is known for being strong for its size; however, these dogs are also very affectionate and loving with their human family. This breed is slowly working away from a totally unfair reputation for being inherently aggressive, and with any luck, will have a bright future as a popular household companion.
Often confused for the American Pit Bull, the American Staffordshire Terrier is a close relative but has been bred separately from the Pit Bull for more than 50 years. Standing 16-19 inches and weighing between 40-60 pounds, the Staffy is a large breed with a muscular build. These dogs have a short blue coat that does not get oily, which typically results in less "wet dog smell" when they get wet.
Known to be rather strong for their size, it is extremely important to provide your Staffy with focused obedience training and early socialization. While these dogs are somewhat standoff-ish to strangers, early training and socialization can grow their affectionate and docile personalities, making them perfect household companions. Training is also important because these dogs have a tendency to chew on furniture when bored. Providing your dog with enough exercise and mental stimulation is crucial to their overall health – and the health of your living room!
Due to their muscular build, The Staffy and the American Pit Bull are commonly used in illegal dog fighting rings. This further exacerbates the reputation they have as aggressive, dangerous dogs. Purchasing your dog from a reputable source and providing it a loving home and proper training will help to dissolve its bad reputation and replace it with a better one.
