American Staffordshire Terrier dogs, which can be in 18 different colors and 9 different feathers, have a full protection dog character with their strong and muscular bodies.


This breed, which began to be produced from the 19th century, is named after the town of Staffordshire, England. The American Staffordshire Terrier, which was developed as a result of crossbreeding with one of the other terrier species common in this region, is known for its muscular stems and activities.

Although weaker in the first years of their appearance, these dogs, which have become more popular with their travel to the USA, have gained a very different characteristic feature since the 1900s. Having reached its ideal size thanks to its continuous crossbreeding and development, this breed fulfills its duty as a guard dog.

Weight – Dimensions

The weight of this breed can reach 30 kilograms and its height up to 50 centimeters.

Average Life Time

The American Staffordshire Terrier breed, which has a shorter life cycle than other dogs, has an average life of 10 years.


The American Staffordshire Terrier race, which has a determined, intelligent, and friendly character, can get along with people quite well. Despite being used as a guard and guard dog, this breed, which does not have the slightest aggression towards its owners, is quite loyal and understanding.

In this race, which has been preserved for the past 50 years, social relations with children and people are well developed. Although social, American Staffordshire Terriers, who can be quite aggressive if their owners are in danger, do not stop until the threat is eliminated. Thanks to its very strong jaw muscles, it can fight even larger animals than its own size.


If you get enough exercise, you can easily feed it at home. A few hours of daily walks will be enough for your dog.

The American Staffordshire Terrier race, which acts quite actively indoors, can live quite happily without the need for a garden.

This breed should be fed in warm environments rather than cold climates, as it is short-haired.

Between Children

If it is socialized at an early age, it can live with children without problems. However, due to his instincts due to being a watchdog, he may try to excel in children after a certain age. If you teach your child how to treat the dog, there will be no problems.
