The American Staffordshire Terrier is intelligent and athletic which means he’s suitable for dog sports including agility, obedience, conformation and tracking. You can recognise him by his powerful head and stocky body. His coat is short and can be any colour. It can be patched, solid or parti-coloured. This dog used to be known as a Pit Dog, a Half and Half or a Bull-and-Terrier dog before the English decided this was a better name in the early 19th century.
This dog loves being with people and is very loyal. He’s also friendly but will protect the household from trouble when necessary. His coat is easy to maintain but he does need regular training and exercise. His height is 17-19 inches tall
