Staffordshire Bull Terrier

Note:If you have this breed, or know   anyone who does, please send a good profile photograph of the Dog (without humans in the background). We shall publish it on this page with credits. You can send it either by e-mail or post.

This breed is said to have a Jekyll and Hyde character. It is friendly, loves the family and even strangers and thrives on affection. However, when it sees another dog, it seems to have a strong desire to destroy. Selective breeding has reduced this tendency. Believed to be a cross between ferocious  well-muscled bull baiters and agile lithe Terriers, this dog was bred for ratting and dog-fighting. Its popularity is increasing. It weighs 11-17 kgs and is 36-41 cms tall.
