Sweet-tempered, highly intelligent and extremely courageous, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier originated in 19th-century England. An affectionate breed, the Stafford is especially fond of children. His strength and determination require an owner who can work with him in a firm but gentle manner. This active, agile breed needs daily exercise, and his powerful jaws benefit from sturdy chew toys. His coat needs only a quick brushing once a week.
