The Stafford

Bull Terrier Breed

Breed Type is determined by the job or purpose each breed has been designated to fulfill. Then Form follows Function! For instance, you will not find a coursing dog that ia heavy and shorter legged because it's function precludes this. So it is a type to perform with great speed and distance covering ability. Coursing dogs are lean, tall, long legged. 



Another example:

Dogs that pull a sled in Arctic conditions will not be smooth coated and barrel-ribbed. He would freeze to death and run out of steam. Therefore we see dogs densely coated, undercoated and more slab-sided pulling sleds!

The stafford Bull Terrier was bred to be the ultimate fighting machine, an animal of quickness, agility, intelligence, great wrestling ability, tremendous endurance and gameness. How do we trancelate this type when his rough hewn, violent beginnings are no longer the proving ground for his type? We study the American Pit Bull Terrier of the SBT is the progenitor. The APBT has more recently developed as the athlete superior in the U.S.A.

Mike Homans' book:"The Staffordshire Bull Terrier in History and Sport" is a tremendous work about our breeds beginnings and the harsness of the times when he was used as the ultimate destruction vehicle. Is there a correlation between our SBT of today and his ancestor in the pit? We would never find a picture of a winning dog that is low stationed, big boned, wih an ultra short fore-face and massive skulled. Coincidentally we wouldn't find a 'people eater' in a winner.

The dog bred for endurance, agility, easy breathing and heat dissipation has leg length, medium bone, superbly angled hind quarters, powerful bite and medium rib spring. He will also be the most dependable people dog you will find because he has to be of such stable nature as to not inflict punishment on his master in the heat of battle as he was being handled from round to round.

How did this trancelate for me into a SBT? He is medium sized, square, medium boned, tremendously angulated with great turning ability, endurance and the most supremely stable people temprament I could find. Dog aggression is a by product that I would never eliminate, only channel because the game dog is what makes him so wonderful with people! Remember he's tough, pain, desensitized, courageous, bold and ready to go!
