Stafford Shire Bull
The Old Fashioned Bull dog was a fierce, courageous animal used in the sports of bear and
bull baiting as early as the mid sixteenth century
In 1935 the Staffordshire Bull Terrier was recognized by the Kennel Club in England and enthusiasts were able to conduct conformation matches. The sport of dogfighting had long been made illegal and the Staffordshire Bull Terrier had evolved into a dog of such temperament as to make him a fine pet and companion and a worthy show dog.
The dog which this produced, averaging between 30 and 45 pounds, became the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
