The Staffordshire Bull Terrier originated in the 19th century in Staffordshire, England when the coal miners needed a small, fast dog. They mixed a local terrier and a Bulldog to get this breed which is tenacious, intelligent, courageous and indomitable and strong for his size.
His smooth coat can be white, fawn, blue, black, solid red or brindle in colour. He’s mainly a family pet today but also performs in show events in agility and obedience competitions. He’s affectionate, obedient, and playful and has a sense of humour. He loves children, is trustworthy and stable. His powerful jaws love toys to chew on. He does need an experienced owner to give him a firm hand. He enjoys daily exercise and he only needs to be brushed quickly once a week. He’s 14 – 16 inches in height.
