The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a medium-sized, short-coated breed of dog of English lineage and as a type could be argued to be of the pit bull category.[1][2][3][4][5][6]


Before the 19th century, blood sports such as bull baiting, bear baiting and cock fighting were common. At the cattle market, bulls were set upon by dogs purportedly as a way of tenderising the meat and providing entertainment for the spectators. Fights with bears and other animals were also organised as entertainment.

The early bull and terrier types were not bred to resemble the breeds of today, but rather for the characteristic known as gameness, with the pitting of dogs against bear or bull; testing the strength and skill of the dogs. Landrace working dogs crossbred with bulldogs provided the ancestral foundation stock for the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Эти кровавые виды спорта были официально запрещены в 1835 году, когда Британия начала вводить законы об охране животных. A dog fighting another dog was cheaper to organise and easier to conceal from the law. Dog fighting involved gambling and a way to continue to test the animal; dogs were released into a pit, and the last dog still fighting or surviving was recognised the winner.

The modern breed is one that has a temperament suitable as a companion dog. It is a dog worthy to show and was accepted by The Kennel Club as the Staffordshire Bull Terrier on 25 May 1935.[7] The Staffordshire Bull Terrier Club was formed in June 1935. Это редко, когда породу признают, если не существует собственного клуба, и еще реже, если у породы нет особых стандартов. A standard was not drawn up until June 1935 at the Old Cross Guns, a Black Country pub in Cradley Heath. 30 любителей породы Стаффордшира собрались в пабе и прописали стандарты для этой породы, а также выбрали первого председателя клуба Джозефа Данна, который является известным человеком в кругах людей, интересующихся Стаффордширскими буль-Терьерами.

Порода получила официальное свидетельство в 1938 году и первыми чемпионами стали собаки Джентльмен Джим Gentleman Jim (воспитанник Джозефа Данна) , Леди Ева (владельцем которой являлся Джозеф Данн), обои титулы были присвоены в 1939. The breed was recognised in the U.S. by the American Kennel Club in 1975.[8]


The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a medium-sized, stocky, and very muscular dog, with a similar appearance to the much larger American Staffordshire Terrier and American Pit Bull Terrier. Шерсть этих собак гладкая и плотно прилегает к телу, что делает их силуэт стройным и изящным. This dog has a broad, wedge-shaped head (male considerably more so than female), defined occipital muscles, a relatively short fore-face, dark round eyes and a wide mouth with a clean scissor-like bite (the top incisors slightly overlap the bottom incisors). Уши небольшие. Щечные мышцы сильно выделяются. Губы постоянно напряжены. The teeth form a scissor bite. Голова плавно переходит в сильную, мускулистую шею и плечи, которые расположены на широких передних конечностях. They are tucked up into their loins and the last 1–2 ribs of the rib-cage are usually visible. Хвост по форме напоминает рукоять от старого насоса. The hind quarters are well-muscled.

У них бывает пятнистая, черная, красноватая, желтовато-коричневая, синеватая, белая расцветки. Или же любое сочетание этих цветов с белым. Расцветка, где присутствуют белый в сочетании с каким-либо другим цветом, называется пестрой. В редких случаях могут встречаться темно-каштановые, черные и желто-коричневые собаки, но от таких особей, точно также как и от собак со светлыми глазами, не советуют заводить потомство. The exception to the light eye rule are Blue staffies; all others should have dark brown eyes even if they have a fawn coat. Шерсть этих собак гладкая и плотно прилегает к телу, что делает их силуэт стройным и изящным.

The dogs stand 36 to 41 cm (14 to 16 in) at the withers and weigh 13 to 17 kg (29 to 37 lb) for males; females are 11 to 15.4 kg (24 to 34 lb).[9]


Due to its breeding and history, common traits exist throughout; the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is known for its character of fearlessness and loyalty.[10] This, coupled with its affectionate nature, its off-duty quietness and trustworthy stability, make it a foremost all-purpose dog.[7]

The breed is naturally muscular and may appear intimidating. Staffordshire Bull Terrier puppies are very easy to house train.[11] They are friendly, enthusiastic and usually extremely affectionate.[12] Staffordshires are notably adaptable in terms of changing home or even owners; this may make them vulnerable to dognapping.[13]

RSPCA chief vet Mark Evans said: "Staffies have had a terrible press, but this is not of their own making–in fact they're wonderful dogs. Если кто-то думает, что Стаффы-это проблемные собаки, то он видит ситуацию в неправильном свете, ведь проблема тут не в животном. Если мы заботимся о них и дрессируем их должным образом, то они станут нам замечательными напарниками. Our experience suggests that problems occur when bad owners exploit the Staffie's desire to please by training them to show aggression."[14]

Законопроект, касающийся определенных пород собак[edit]

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is subject to breed-specific legislation in various countries, which ban members of the Bull and Terrier family.[15]


Staffordshire Bull Terriers are known to suffer from Hereditary Cataracts (HC) and L-2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria (L2HGA)—a metabolic disorder resulting in behavioural changes and dementia-like symptoms—both of which are detectable via DNA tests.[16]

Distichiasis (commonly known as “double eyelash”) and Persistent Hyperplastic Primary Vitreous (or PHPV)—a condition whereby the blood supply to the ocular lens fails to regress and fibrovascular tissue forms, causing hazy vision—both of which are checked by way of an ocular examination throughout the life of a breeding stud or brood-bitch to minimise the transfer and spread of these conditions.

The breed is known to be at a higher risk from mastocytoma (mast cell tumours) than the general population of dogs.[17]

A UK Kennel Club survey puts the median lifespan at 12.75 years.[18] UK vet clinic data puts the median at 10.7 years.[19]
