    BULLTERRIER

 

  THEY WERE CREATED IN THE 19TH CENTURY AS A SMALL, FAST FIGHTING DOG BUT THOSE DAYS ARE LONG GONE. THE STAFFY HAS A MUSCULAR BODY,INTENSE STARE AND POWERFUL STANCE. MANY PEOPLE TAKE INTEREST IN THE STAFFYS BECAUSE THEY LOOK LIKE A TOUGH DOG BUT DONT REALIZE STAFFYS ARE SENSITIVE AND LOVING COMPANIONS WHO ENJOY PLAYING AND HAVING FUN RATHER THAN BEING TOUGH.

 

THE STAFFYS ARE KNOWN FOR THERE LOVE OF PEOPLE AND TRUSTWORTHY NATURE. THEY ARE ATHLETIC AND ENERGETIC DOGS THAT LOVE BEING PART OF EVERYTHING.THEY ARE NOT TO BE LEFT OUTSIDE ALONE OR BY THEMSELVES AT HOME FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME. THEY LOVE EXERCISE AND GOING FOR TRIPS IN THE CAR.

 

STAFFYS ARE HIGHLY INTELLIGENT WHO LIKE TO DO THINGS THERE OWN WAY. STAFFYS ENJOY THERE COMFORTS AND LIKE TO JUMP ON THE COUCH AND OR BED WITH YOU. THEY DO NOT HANDLE HEAT WELL AND NEED TO BE MONITERED ON HOT DAYS. A STAFFY IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR A FIRST TIME DOG OWNER. THEY NEED A CONFIDENT PERSON WHO IS FIRM BUT ALSO VERY LOVING.

 

STAFFYS ARE VERY MOUTHY AS PUPPIES AND CAN BE DESTRUCTIVE IF NOT SUPERVISED. THEY ARE PROTECTIVE OF FAMILY MEMBERS BUT DONT CARE TO MUCH ABOUT PROPERTY. NEVER BUY A STAFFY FROM A PET STORE OR A PUPPY MILL OR A BREEDER WHO HASNT GOT PARENTS AND PAPERWORK FOR YOU TO VIEW.

 

STAFFYS ARE INDIVIDUALS JUST LIKE PEOPLE AND EAT DIFFERENT AMOUNTS OF FOOD AS ADULT DOGS. THE QUALITY OF DOG FOOD YOU BUY DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND THE FURTHER IT WILL GO TOWARD NOURISHING YOUR DOG. DO NOT OVER FEED THEM AT ALL.

 

THE STAFFYS COAT SHEDS YEARLY AND HAIR LOSS IS MINIMAL. DIRT BRUSHES OUT EASILY. ALWAYS GIVE YOUR STAFFY A GOOD WASH IF THERE DIRTY. THEY NEED THERE NAILS CLIPPED EVERY COUPLE OF MONTHS TO BE KEPT IN GOOD CONDITION. STAFFYS ARE ONE OF THE BEST FAMILY DOGS YOU CAN GET.
