The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a fast, muscular dog who was originally bred for an unfortunate purpose: fighting. The dog, commonly known as the Staffy or SBT, has since become a loyal family companion. Depending on whom you ask, Staffies are often lumped into the generic category of pit bull, which includes American Staffordshire Terriers and American Pit Bull Terriers.
The SBT has a slightly broader face than its cousin, the American Staffordshire Terrier (Am Staff). Compared to the Am Staff, the SBT usually has rose-shaped ears and is shorter in height. When it comes to homeowner’s insurance, some companies may place restrictions on Staffordshire Bull Terriers.
