American Staffordshire
Courageous and strong, the American Staffordshire Terrier (Am Staff)’s athletic build and intelligence make him
ideally suited to many dog sports such as obedience, agility, tracking and conformation. He is often identified by
his stocky body and strong, powerful head. The breed’s short coat can be any color, and either solid colored,
parti-colored or patched

Until the early 19th century, the Bulldog used for bullbaiting in England was more active and longer-legged than
the breed as we know it today. It is thought that the cross of this older Bulldog and a game terrier breed created
the Staffordshire Terrier. Originally called the Bull-and-Terrier Dog, Half and Half or Pit Dog, it became known as
the Staffordshire Bull Terrier in England. When accepted for AKC registration in 1936, the name changed to
American Staffordshire Terrier to reflect the heavier American type and to distinguish them as separate breeds
Right Breed for You? The Am Staff is a people-oriented dog that thrives when he is made part of the family and
given a job to do. Although friendly, this breed is loyal to his family and will protect them from any threat. His
short coat is low-maintenance, but regular exercise and training is necessary.
