The Stafford is active, agile, highly intelligent, affectionate (especially with children), trustworthy, dependable, tolerant and most importantly
totally reliable.

He is very much a victim of his environment,
and if raised with cats, birds, sheep, horses or other dogs they will grow together to be the best of friends.

The breed is suitable for urban or rural areas. 
His smooth coat and medium size (eating about
half a kilogram of meat per day) make him perfect
for the family home in the suburbs or walking in outback Australia.

The Stafford has proven his ability in the obedience ring and he is fairly represented in these areas.
He loves a game of ball, swimming, daily walks on the lead, 
but most of all his greatest ambition is to
curl up in front of the fire with you - his owner…

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a "peoples dog"

  

A breed of exceptional character, he is the companion depicted as Bill Skyes dog in the
Charles Dickens classic, Oliver. He has played many a part in children's screen lives, notably as
Bullseye in the 1940 series Ourgang. The breed is cared for in every state of Australia.
