Blue staffordshire bull terrier are affectionate and loving dogs which, as the Kennel Club breed standard says, have a special affinity with children. They are courageous, intelligent and tenacious and, in the right hands, make a devoted family pet.
Is a blue Staffy a pitbull?
They are short and slightly wider than they are tall, giving them a low centre of gravity with a firm stance. Their small size gives them surprising agility, while their heavy musculature provides great strength. Their head is broad and deep with a short foreface, distinct stop and strong jaws that meet in a scissors bite. Their ears are small and rose or half pricked and their tail is thicker at the base, tapering to a point and carried low.
Blue staffies are typically headstrong and stubborn in their early months so obedience training is a must. They need a calm and consistent owner with whom they can build a trusting relationship, as they are extremely loyal to their families.
It’s important to buy your blue staffy from a responsible and ethical breeder who cares more about the health and wellbeing of their puppies than the money they can make selling them. Some countries and states, including Ireland, Germany, Israel, Malaysia and Romania, prohibit the ownership of Staffordshire bull terriers.
