Staffordshire Bull Terrier Top Breed Dogs

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier (informally: Staffie, Staffy or Staff) is a medium-sized, short-coated, old-time breed of dog, originally bred for bull baiting. In the early part of the twentieth century they gained respectability and were accepted into the The Kennel Club of the United Kingdom as the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. It is an English breed of dog related to the Bull Terrier, or its larger cousins the American Staffordshire Terrier or the American Pit Bull Terrier, and often placed in the category of 'Pit Bull Terriers'. The American Staffordshire Terrier and the American Pit Bull Terrier are considered to be the same breed in England, although they are considered separate breeds in the United States.(Wikipedia)

United Kennel Club states that "This breed has indomitable courage, high intelligence and tenacity. Coupled with its affection for its friends, and children in particular, its quietness and trustworthy stability make it an all-purpose dog."[4] However, the organization cautions that their standards are only intended for those already familiar with the breed, experienced owners or UKC judges(wikipedia)
