The Blue Staffordshire Bull Terrier
The blue staffy bull terrier is a medium-sized dog with a muscular build and a short coat. It was created in 19th century England to be a fighting dog. Despite its brawling past, the breed is loving and devoted to its family and friends. It is also very good with children and can even be a great playmate for them. These dogs are known to be affectionate and friendly towards strangers as well. They are sometimes standoffish with other animals but if they have been socialised from a young age, they can live happily with other pets and even cats.
Is a Staffy a bully?
This breed is typically very healthy and has very few hereditary diseases that are specific to them. However, they are susceptible to a few conditions such as hip and elbow dysplasia, congenital heart defects, and eye problems. In addition, a few of them have been known to suffer from allergies that can lead to itchy skin.
Those who are interested in this breed may want to consider adopting a puppy from a shelter or rescue group. This is an excellent option for those who are looking for a pet without spending too much money. However, when choosing a shelter or rescue group, it is best to disclose information about your children and other animals so that the staff can advise you appropriately.
A blue staffordshire bull terrier grows to be about 18 months old before reaching its full height and weight. During this time, the puppy will put on a lot of muscle mass and will become physically mature.
