The Staffordshire Bull Terrier (or Staffy) was bred in Britain in the 19th-century as an undersized, swift fighting dog. Now, with the loving nickname 'The Nanny Dog,' he is brave, intelligent, forbearing and loving of children nothing like his ancestors! While the English Staffy comes across as an imposing creature, with his athletic, muscular build, intimidating stance and penetrating gaze, he is, deep down a sensitive and amorous companion. He has a lively yet soft personality and enjoys having fun more than living rough.
This breed does need significant exercise but a daily brisk walk should keep his vigour at bay. With an easy-care coat, this puppy is relatively low maintenance; however, Staffies don't like to be left alone for long periods of time. As such, these people-loving animals would be more suited to a hands-on pet owner. Expect your Staffy to demand lots of attention as you build your relationship with this loving and truly trustworthy dog. The Blue Staffy is currently our most popular puppy of its kind. Cute!
Some states restrict the ownership of all or particular bull breeds. Before you fall in love with your perfect pet on Pups4Sale, make sure you are clear on the laws in your municipality.
It can be a challenge telling the difference between Staffordshire Bull Terriers (English Staffies) and American Staffordshire Terriers. Both are easy to maintain, are great with kids, shed minimally and require daily exercise; however, they are often slightly different in appearance and varied in nature.
The American Staffie is lankier, tall with a slender frame; whereas, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a shorter, more robust and muscular breed. The cheeks of the English Staffy are far more pronounced and the ear shape generally varies; the American sporting a clipped look, while the English Staffy's ears remain generally intact and pricked to attention.
