Amstaff Harness

Amstaff harness

Temperament: American Staffordshire Terriers are gentle, friendly, stoic, courageous, intelligent, determined, tough, and devoted. The American Staffordshire Terrier dogs are so devoted to their family and friends that they would lay down their life to protect them. They get along well with children, but do not do so well with other pets. They can be aggressive with dogs of the same sex, and will try to hunt any other animals. The AmStaffTer does get along with dogs of a different sex, however. They are reliable, affectionate, and a high pain tolerance. They are naturally only aggressive toward other animals and not humans, as they were bred to be. They were bred to be used to being handled or grabbed by their owners in even the most fierce of fights

Description:
The American Staffordshire Terrier's muscled build and protective instinct should make strangers beware, yet with their own family they are devoted, gentle and loving. A common question regarding the American Staffordshire Terrier is, "How is this breed different from the American Pit Bull Terrier?". In the eyes of the United Kennel Club, they are the same breed, but many disagree. Some AKC-registered American Staffordshire Terriers are dual-registered as American Pit Bull Terriers with the UKC; however, this draws criticism from many who point out that the bloodlines have been separate for too long for these to be considered the same breed. The AKC, on the other hand, does not allow a UKC-registered American Pit Bull Terrier to be registered as an American Staffordshire Terrier. To be dual-registered, the dog must first be an AKC-registered American Staffordshire Terrier and then it can be registered with the UKC as an APBT -- but not vice versa... They are courageous and a tenacious fighter if provoked. Training can be a challenge because of their pushy yet sensitive character. Their natural temperament towards people is gentle and loving, unfortunately some have been improperly handled giving the American Staffordshire Terrier a bad rap.

History/Origin:
Recently recognized as a distinct breed, he descends from the fighting pits of England and America. A variety of breeds were used to develop the "Amstaff" including the Bull Terrier, the Old English White Terrier, the Black and Tan, the Amstaff, the Mastiff, the Pointer, the Dalmatian and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. His name was changed from the Staffordshire Terrier to the American Staffordshire Terrier in 1972.
