American Staffordshire Terrier

American Staffordshire Terrier


Height: 17-19 inches

Weight: 50-65 lbs.

Life Span: 12-14 yrs.

Breed Group: Terriers

Overview
The American Staffordshire terrier is very affectionate to family members, including children, and to most strangers. Because of its fighting background, however, it should always be walked on-leash and kept in a fenced area when playing.

Aggressive games like tug-of-war are ill-advised with dogs from fighting stock, and they should be supervised around other animals. Early socialization and obedience training is advised.

Appearance
The short coat is glossy and stiff to the touch. Any color in the solid, particolor, or patched pattern is possible. Brindle, white with patches of color, black, and red are the most common.

Grooming & Exercise Needs
Although the American Staffordshire terrier needs only minimal brushing, bathing three to six times a year is important for a healthy skin and coat.

This dog needs a few long walks and aerobic-level play sessions daily.

Origins
The American Staffordshire terrier, a descendant of an English bulldog crossed with an unidentified terrier, was created in the 19th century primarily for pit fighting.

Special Alerts
The American Staffordshire is not suitable for inexperienced owners.

Breed-related health concerns: anterior cruciate rupture, progressive retinal atrophy, hip dysplasia, skin allergies.
