At first sight, it can be seen that the short coat of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is hard, resistant and dense. The wide range of colors that this breed can adopt is remarkable: red, yellow, brindle, black, bluish tone or any of these combined with white (or only white).

Obedience training is possible, although it is not the Staffordshire’s strong point. Forceful training methods will not work, but, if training becomes a game, the Staffordshire will be quite willing to play.

The Staffordshire bull terrier is a dog that needs two things in life: close human contact and the chance to play. It is a dog too attached to people to be exiled to the yard, and too athletic to be cooped up indoors all day. Living with a Staffordshire means sharing time both indoors and outdoors. If exercised both mentally and physically, the Staffordshire will be a well-behaved dog.

Like all bull breeds, the Staffordshire bull terrier is descended from the ancient Molossian war dogs of the Greeks. In turn, the Molossians gave rise to the great mastiffs of Europe, and then to the family of dogs bred to fight bulls or other animals.

The history of the Staffordshire bull terrier is closely linked to the history of the pit bull terrier and other bull type terriers. The Staffordshire bull terrier derives from the extinct British bull and terrier that were used to fight bulls. Subsequently, these dogs were used for dog fighting, until this deplorable activity was banned. Today the Staffordshire bull terrier is recognized by canine societies around the world. Many staffies participate in dog sports such as agility and competitive obedience.

That is why it is very important to educate and socialize a Staffordshire bull terrier from puppyhood, in a calm and firm way and to provide him with daily exercise, to keep his energy level under control and to be able to enjoy a calm and balanced dog. (That is, in principle, this is not a dog for everyone).

The coat of the SBT is smooth, and they are short haired dogs.  Staffy dogs are robust, compact, strong and well proportioned. Their skull is broad, with strong jaws and semi-upright ears. Their tail is of medium length and is usually carried low.

The origin of this dog is in the British Isles, and comes from crosses between the old English bulldog and terrier breed dogs, which sought to obtain a dog with the power of the bulldog and the tenacity and vigor of character of the terriers.  In the England of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, dog fights were common as a popular amusement. There were also «sports» with bulls and bears, in which the big beasts were tied up, and the dogs were whipped against them.
