English Bully Staffy Bull Terrier Breed History

The name English Bully Staffy Bull Terrier is a combination of the names of the dog’s parent breeds, the English Bulldog and the American Staffordshire Terrier, also known as the Pit Bull Terrier. The American Staffordshire Terrier, became popular in early 1800s when it was developed in the English region of Staffordshire for dog fighting. It was originally called the “Bull and Terrier” and was likely an Old English Bulldog and Terrier mix. Eventually, dog fighting was banned and the breed migrated to the United States where breeders sought to increase the dog’s weight and head size. This variety became known as the Pit Bull Terrier and was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1936. In 1972, it was renamed the American Staffordshire Terrier –  though the Pit Bull nickname has stuck with the breed. The origin of the other parent breed, the Bulldog, is widely debated although this trusty breed has  been a member of the American Kennel Club since 1886. He is a member of the Non Sporting group, which is a bit ironic considering he was originally bred to participate in sport (the cruel practises of bull-baiting and dog fighting). Now the official mascot for Yale University, along with many other schools, this endearing dog is presently the 4th most popular dog breed according to the American Kennel Club roster. The English Bully Staffy Bull Terrier is likely to have been bred for decades, given its parent breeds’ close relation and geographical closeness. However, it is not widely recognized today and regulated or recognized by the AKC.
