The American Staffordshire Terrier is a bright, well tempered, outgoing breed that loves to please their owner. Great with kids and adults alike, these dogs make for great family pets. Due to their high threshold for pain, these dogs can be very dangerous if not properly socialized, since, just like any other dog, they have the capacity to get unruly. But unlike other breeds, when an Am Staff does, they can deliver quite a payload. Should their family act like a functional pack, with a strong pack leader (that isn’t the dog), the Am Staff is one of the most well rounded breeds available. .
