Originally bred for fighting, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier (or Staffy) is a muscular dog with a gentle temperament.
Contrary to popular belief they are not aggressive dogs and most ‘dangerous’ Staffordshire Bull Terriers will have been trained to be so by their owners.
Ironically, Staffordshire Bull Terriers make bad attack dogs because they are so fond of people and a properly trained one will be a loyal and affectionate pet.
The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is quite a healthy dog, although like most breeds, it is susceptible to eye problems.
To make sure that your dog will get the best medical attention if they need it, choose an insurer that provides long-term cover for your dog.
