American Staffordshire Terrier Info & American Staffordshire Terrier Breeders

The American Staffordshire Terrier also known as Amstaff is medium-sized, with a short coat. The Bulldog/Terrier cross has had several names, including Bull-and-Terrier Dog, Pit Bull, or Half and Half. It assumed the name of Staffordshire Bull Terrier in England. The breed found it's way into America as early as 1870 and in 1936 was accepted by the American Kennel Club as the American Staffordshire Terrier - to reflect difference from the Staffordshire Bull Terrier of England.

According to the American Kennel Club "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 own family."

The American Staffordshire Terrier should give the impression of great strength for his size, a well put-together dog, muscular, but agile and graceful, keenly alive to his surroundings.

While ancestors were bred for dog fighting, the American Staffordshire Terrier is bred today as a companion and show dog.  Early socialisation and proper training is recommended with the breed.
