AmStaffs, as they are affectionately known by their fans, are common showbiz dogs. They’re a gorgeous, if stocky, purebred that can take plenty of roughhousing with the kids thanks to their good nature and strong bodies. They are smart, exude confidence and, when socialized properly, are a terrific companion for adults and children.
These terriers come in many different color patterns and have a short and glossy coat. They love a good mental and physical challenge, and respond extremely well to quality training. Often getting a bad rap as one of the pit bull breeds (a cross between a bulldog and terrier), the key to making this a good family dog is finding a responsible breeder who understands the nuances of AmStaffs.
