Staffordshire Bull Terriers with a height of 35-40 cm and a weight of 12-17 kg belong to the robust and muscular dogs. They have a short and broad head with prominent cheek muscles and a close-fitting coat in several colours. Although Staffies still resemble the bullfighters that once ruled the English fighting rings, responsible breeders have turned them into lovable, family-oriented dogs with a reputation of patient babysitters for children. They are loyal companions, but still harbour the old fighting instinct, so it is essential that Staffie puppies are socialised with other dogs and learn good doggy manners.
