Mankind has enjoyed the faithfulness of the dog by his side for centuries. Few dogs desire to please their human masters as much as the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Dogs in general have accommodated man and his every whim for generations - anything to please the master. Today's Staffordshire Bull Terrier, in mind and body, echoes that sentiment with might and determination. Before the days of dog shows and the purebred mating of champions, humans recognised the merit in dogs that could specialise in performing a specific job or task. We bred dogs that could hunt, herd, haul, guard, run, track and perform countless other tasks geared towards making our human lives more comfortable, enjoyable and manageable. Each dog's anatomy reflected the tasks that men set before him.
