American Staffordshire Terriers (often called American Staffys or Amstafs) make great family dogs and watch dogs.
Their sweet temper, and kind and gentle nature makes them popular family pets. They are very clingy, affectionate and playful, especially with kids, and will show their owners unconditional loyalty.
American Staffordshire Terriers are a strongly built, muscly breed with a short body and a deep chest. They need to learn to control their power and body mass. Early socialisation is therefore of the utmost importance for this breed.
They enjoy any kind of dog sport. They show great talent as assistance dogs or even search-and-rescue dogs, where they can use their brain and muscle power.
