The Staffordshire Bull Terrier was not recognised by the English Kennel Club until 1935, despite being bred in the UK in the 19th century.

The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a powerful and muscular dog, very strong for his size with a broad head and very strong jaws.

Dark preferable, but may bear some relation to coat color. Round, of medium size, and set to look straight ahead.

Light eyes or pink eye rims to be considered a fault, except that where the coat surrounding the eye is white the eye rim may be pink. Ears-Rose or half-pricked and not large.

Full drop or full prick to be considered a serious fault.

Mouth - A bite in which the outer side of the lower incisors touches the inner side of the upper incisors. The lips should be tight and clean. The coat is smooth, short and close to the skin, not to be trimmed or de-whiskered.

Colors include red, fawn, white, black or blue, or any of these colors with white. Any shade of brindle or any shade of brindle with white. Black-and-tan or liver color to be disqualified. The tail is medium length, low set, tapering to a point and carried rather low.

Should not curl much and may be likened to an old fashioned pump handle.

Lips tight and clean. Jaws strong, teeth large, with a perfect, regular and complete scissor bite, i.e. upper teeth closely overlapping lower teeth and set square to the jaws. Rose or half pricked ears, not large or heavy. Full, drop or pricked ears highly undesirable.

Temperament: Reliable, Bold, Fearless, Affectionate, Loyal, Intelligent, Courageous

Health Problems: Hip dysplasia is occasionally seen. Prone to mast cell tumors. Puppies are prone to having an elongated soft palate. Like all the bully type breeds, Staffordshire Bull Terriers often have gas problems.
