Staffordshire Bull Terrier Puppies
Description: The Staffordshire Bull Terrier, or Staffy, are smooth-coated dogs who have great strength for their size. A mix between a terrier and a bulldog, they are muscular but should also be active and agile. Staffordshire Bull Terriers are usually adoring within their family circle, but need firm handling and constant training as they have a strong instinct to fight with other dogs. This breed is a strong, well-muscled animal that is medium sized, yet still looks imposing. They have strongly-muscled back legs, wide set front legs, and a square head. They have a black nose and their fur can be red, fawn, white, black or blue. The ears are rose or semi-erect. No matter where they are they give the impression of raw strength and power. Staff Bull Terriers know their strength, and therefore find little use to express it unless the time comes. They are relatively calm and quiet, until the need for defense arises. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a game companion, being very affectionate and ready to do whatever you want to do. They will gladly go with you to play sports or just go for a walk. This breed requires a lot of physical stimulation to keep those muscles fit. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is not only reliable and competent in the home, but is also easy to care for.
