The history of the Staffordshire bull terrier is closely linked to the history of the pit bull terrier and other bull terriers. The Staffordshire bull terrier derives from the extinct British bull and terriers that were used to fight bulls. Later, those dogs were used for dog fighting, until that 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.
Although he may seem like a “bad boy”, few dogs are as well suited for family life. They have a gentle and affectionate temperament, especially with the little ones, towards whom they will show an unusual tolerance. Nothing will make a Staffordshire Bull Terrier happier than spending time with your loved ones.
They have great intelligence, although they do not stand out for their docility. Being so clever they tend to do everything their own way. They do not tolerate high temperatures well. Try not to leave them in the sun for a long time and avoid walks in the most intense heat hours. And their behavior should be watched for their high tolerance to pain. You may have a problem and it may not be noticeable to us.
