American Staffordshire Terrrier Breed Information: These dogs began to find their way into America as early as 1850. Became a new breed and was recognized by the United Kennel Club in 10 February, 1898, with the name American pit bull terrier. In 1936 some pit bulls were accepted for registration in the American Kennel Club (AKC) Stud Book as Staffordshire Terriers with a new standard and purpose, belonging to the terrier and molosser groups. The name of the breed was revised January 1, 1969 to American Staffordshire Terrier; breeders in the United States had developed a variety which was heavier in weight than the Staffordshire Bull Terrier of England. The name change was to distinguish them as separate breeds.

Coat & Color


Red, fawn, white, black or blue, with white, any shade of brindle.

Health Issues

The American Staffordshire Terrier should give the impression of great strength for his size, a well put-together dog, muscular, but agile and graceful, keenly alive to his surroundings. He should be stocky, not long-legged or racy in outline. Height and weight should be in proportion. A height of about 18 to 19 inches (46 to 48 cm) at shoulders for the male and 17 to 18 inches (43 to 46 cm) for the female is to be considered preferable.

American Staffordshire Terrier pups should not be bought weaned before they are 8–10 weeks old. Their life expectancy is generally 12 years with good care. The breed may be vulnerable to skin allergies, urinary tract infections (UTI), and autoimmune diseases. Spondylosis and osteoarthritis are common in older dogs.

Notable issues related to health and-well being include:

  • Congenital heart disease
  • Elbow dysplasia
  • Hip dysplasia
  • Luxating patella
  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Cerebellar ataxia

Living Environment

According to the American Kennel Club “The Am Staff is a people-oriented dog that thrives when he is made part of the family and given a job to do. Although friendly, this breed is loyal to his own family.”

Why Choose Puppy Select?

We, as a family, have always been dog owners. We have owned many breeds of dog and have had many champions; even world champion dogs from Europe and elsewhere. Not only conformation competitions but also were highly involved with working dogs. We even had a schutzhund club that would meet at our property several days per week.

We are an American-based company that has traveled across the continents to find quality dogs for our many customers, as well as for myself. We have a qualified dog finding team that works extensively across Europe, North America, and South America to find the perfect puppy for you. Our mission is to bring you a quality puppy that has been hand selected by members of our staff. Our staff is composed of FCI judges across the continents that inspect each puppy, and then licensed veterinarians inspect your puppy again. Our puppies will never come out of puppy mills like so many other internet companies or pet stores. We take the stress out of your puppy search and purchase.

Do you have to qualify to purchase one of our dogs?

The answer is no! It is our desire that everyone who wants a pet should have one. This is one of the reasons that we started this business. Nothing is more frustrating than purchasing a quality dog, then to be controlled by a breeder and their contract. If you purchase our puppies, you may or may not breed your dog, you may or may not show your dog as you wish. You will receive a full pedigree. We do however, reserve the right to act in the best interest of our puppies, and reserve the right to refuse service to a potential buyer.

Do you offer a Health Guarantee?

Yes. We offer a health guarantee for all puppies. Please see the terms and conditions under our Purchase/Health Guarantee Contract. All buyers must sign the agreement with our terms and conditions prior to purchase.

What does it mean if the puppy has a champion sire or dam?

Sire means that the father of your dog is a champion. Dam means that the mother if your dog is a champion. If it says “champion lines” it means that one or more of their ancestors were or are champions. Basically, you are getting a puppy that is a representation of the breed with good, solid bloodlines.

Can I get a highly trained dog?

We offer dogs that are trained and certificated in many specialties.

*Search and Rescue (all terrains)
*Guide dogs for the Blind
*Therapeutic Dogs (assistance for people with disabilities)
*Certified Dog Helpers (assistance for people in wheel chairs)

Contact us in regards to information in regards to any of these specialized dogs.

Will my puppy come house-broken and trained?

The answer is no. Puppies are generally not trained before arrival to you. For specific breeds, some training options may be available. Please contact us for further details.
