american staffordshire terrier

The American Staffordshire Terrier was developed by farmers and settlers for all around farm work, hunting wild game, guarding, and companionship. There remain dedicated owners and breeders who provide American Staffordshire Terriers with humane, responsible ownership, often training these dogs for community service tasks such as pet therapy and search and rescue.

The American Staffordshire Terrier is a breed of dog. The breed is descended from the Staffordshire Terrier of England. When the Staffordshire Terrier came to the United States in the late 1800s it was then separated into two categories, the fighting breed now known as the Pit Bull Terrier, and the show breed recognized as the American Staffordshire Terrier. Though these breeds are considered cousins they are very different. American Staffordshire Terriers were first recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1936. They are a member of the Terrier and Molosser groups.
