The Chi Staffy Bull is a hybrid breed. It is a combination of the parent breeds Chihuahua and Staffordshire Bull Terrier. He is an alert and highly intelligent dog. He loves his family, and he is good with children as well as other pets. He rarely barks; however, coupled with the fact that the Chihuahua is a very good watchdog (as is the Staffordshire Bull Terrier), the Chi Staffy Bull is an excellent watchdog. Depending upon his direct parentage, he may be a variety of colors and coat lengths. He is suited to live in many environments including apartments or larger homes with a fenced-in area in which he can play.

Chi Staffy Bull Breed History

While there is not much information on the Chi Staffy Bull breed itself, one can still learn much about the breed by studying the parent breeds. The ancestors of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier are thought to include the Bulldog and the Mastiff. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier originated in the early nineteenth century and was created as a smaller, faster fighting dog (when compared with the Bulldog). Ironically, the Staffordshire was bred to be friendly with people. Most experts believe the Staffordshire of today is a mix of the Manchester Terrier and the Bulldog. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier is generally a family companion, smaller than an American Pit Bull Terrier, and a good watchdog, but not highly aggressive. He joined the American Kennel Club in 1974. Named after the Mexican state of Chihuahua, ancient paintings show that the Chihuahua was highly prized by the Toltecs as far back as the 9th century. His ancestor was the Techchichi dog who was thought to have magical healing abilities and was also cremated and buried with his owners when they passed on the the next world.

Chi Staffy Bull Breed Appearance

The Chi Staffy Bull’s color, type of coat, and length of coat all depend upon the immediate parentage of the Chi Staffy Bull. Your hybrid may have a variety of coats. Sometimes long and wavy, and other times shorter and smooth, the coat will be of medium density and can include many colors, some of them being brindle, fawn, white, red or black. He will most likely be under 18 pounds in weight and he'll stand about a foot tall. His ears may be erect like the Chihuahua or may flop just a bit. Fringing of fur may or may not be present on ears, depending on which Chihuahua parent is used in breeding, the long or short haired one. His eyes will be brown and alert, and his smile will indicate his proud nature.

Chi Staffy Bull Breed Maintenance

The Chi Staffy Bull has minimal grooming requirements. He'll need a weekly brushing with either a pin brush or a slicker brush, depending on the coat. The pin brush is often the choice for the Chi Staffy Bull who has longer fur and the slicker brush works well on a smooth, shorter coat. The teeth of this hybrid should be brushed a few times a week. His nails will need clipping bi-weekly. Some hybrids may have sensitive skin prone to dryness - if you notice his skin looks irritated, consult the veterinarian for advice.

Chi Staffy Bull Temperament

Owners of the Chi Staffy Bull say they are an affection dog, and are loving toward their people from just a few weeks of age. Care needs to be taken that your dog has a chance to interact with all family members though as the Chihuahua parent can become a one man dog. The Chi Staffy Bully is alert, brave, and curious, but he can be stubborn as well. He is an excellent guardian but must be taught appropriate behavior when guarding isn't needed. Many experts encourage obedience classes for the sometimes tenacious Chi Staffy Bull so that he can learn to get along with everyone, gain confidence if he is shy, and use his intellect.

Chi Staffy Bull Activity Requirements

Care must be taken not to overexert the Chi Staffy Bully during exercise sessions. This doesn't mean that he needs to sit still either though, a walk a few times a day will be welcomed and will be a good opportunity for your dog to practise his social skills. Access to a yard is the best for this breed as the Staffordshire Bull Terrier parent loves to explore. Digging may be an issue in this hybrid if left to his own devices; be sure to accompany him out to the yard and play a game of fetch. As with all dogs, make sure water is accessible during and after exercise.
