They're not. The only reason some are aggresive is because of the way their owners treat them and train them.

Can you breed an americanstaffordshire terrier to a stafforshire bull terrier?

Theoretically yes, any breed can be mated with any breed. In this situation it would probably be adviseable to use a female Staffordshire Bull Terrier and a male American Staffordshire Terrier for ease of mating. Be sure not to use an American Staffordshire Terrier that is too big as it might hurt the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Bear in mind that the resulting puppies will be crossbred so will have less value than purebreds. They will also probably either resemble large Staffordshire Bull Terriers or small American Staffordshire Terriers.

What were staffordshire bull terriors bred for?

Staffordshire Bull Terriers were bred in an age where Bull baiting and Dog fighting were still seen as 'sports'. Bull baiting is when a tethered bull has trained Dogs set on it so that onlookers can bet on either how many Dogs the Bull can kill or how long it takes for the Dogs to kill the Bull. A similar blood sport was using bears. Dog fighting was organised in pits where people would bet on which Dog would win; this is also how the Pit Bull Terrier originated. Luckily, these 'sports' have been illegal for more than a century. Unfortunately, organised Dog fights still take place illegally in some countries. Today, Staffordshire Bull Terriers make great pets and family members.

Are Staffordshire bull terrier blue safe with kids?

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is known for its good temperament with children, earning it the nickname ''Nanny Dog''. I would recommend buying a puppy so that it can grow up around children and learns how to behave around them. Staffordshire Bull Terriers are naturally loving Dogs with people, but you must make sure to supervise children when around any Dog (regardless of breed) and make sure that they know how to handle Dogs properly. As long as you do this, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier can be a child's best friend. My Stafford lives with four children under the age of 12 and she has always been 100% reliable with them.

The largest bull terrier?

There are several breeds of Dog referred to as Bull Terriers, and the largest is the American Pit Bull Terrier (or American Staffordshire Terrier) standing at between 17 and 19 inches at the shoulder. Another is the English Bull Terrier, which should stand at between 21 and 24 inches at the shoulder, but there is no defined height for this breed in the Kennel Club breed standard. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier usually stands at between 14 and 16 inches at the shoulder, but should not be much larger as it may be classified as a Pit Bull Terrier. Another breed is the Miniature (English) Bull Terrier, which should not be taller than 14 inches at the shoulder or it may be disqualified from professional showing. So, overall the largest of the Bull Terrier breeds is the American Staffordshire/Pit Bull Terrier.

Are staffordshire bull terriers under the dangerous dog act?

all bull terriers and terriers are cos of the rep they have from people getting them cos they look cool and makes them look 'hard', and then not being able to train and handle them, so the dog ends up attacking someone and then the whole breed is blamed, sad, really... Actually, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier, English Bull Terrier, English Bulldog, French Bulldog and American Bulldog are not included in the Dangerous Dogs Act 1991. The breeds that are banned under the Dangerous Dogs Act are the American Pit Bull Terrier (American Staffordshire Terrier), Dogo Argentino, Fila Brazileiro and Japanese Tosa. I do not think this Act is effective at preventing dog attacks as the number of dog attacks on humans has actually risen since the Act was introduced. The Act has, however, caused the euthanisation and death of hundreds of healthy, happy and friendly family pets that were killed just because of what they looked like. There is no such thing as a ''Bad Breed'', there are only bad owners!
