Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier
  • An American Staffordshire Terrier named Stubby earned the rank of Sergeant and was the most decorated dog of World War I.
  • As the breed moved to America the names Pitdog and Pitbull Terrier stuck. However, American breeders wanted an animal heavier than the British breed, hence the name American Staffordshire Terrier.
  • The roots of the American Staffordshire Terrier can be traced through early Mastiff warriors, to the original Bulldogs in England, which were used in the bloody sport of bull baiting.
  • The American Staffordshire Terrier was accepted in 1936 for registration in the American Kennel Club stud book as Staffordshire Terriers.
  • American Staffordshire Terriers are intelligent and excellent guardians.
  • It is widely accepted that this breed evolved in part from the old "Bulldogue" brought over from the Staffordshire region of England.
