A list of my favorite images of Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier, also known as a "Stafford" or "Staffie", is a breed of short-haired, small- to medium-sized dog that was developed in Staffordshire, England and northern parts of Birmingham.
The breed originated by crossing the Bulldog and Black and Tan Terrier and evolved over time with the infusion of other breeds for refinement of purpose which, in Victorian England prior to the banning of blood sports in 1835, was ratting, bull-baiting and dog fighting, the latter of which continued as a clandestine sport.
The Staffie is a stocky, muscular and unusually strong, small- to medium-sized dog that stands 14 to 16 in (36 to 41 cm) at the shoulder. The dogs weigh 29 to 37 lb (13 to 17 kg) and the bitches 24 to 34 lb (11 to 15 kg).
It has a broad chest, strong shoulders, well boned wide set legs, a medium length tail that is carried low and a broad head with a short muzzle; its ears fold over at the tips and are not cropped.
The Staffie's coat is short, stiff and close. Base colours can be red, fawn, white, black or blue, or any one of the aforementioned with white, any shade of brindle or any shade of brindle with white.
