Rottie Sttafy, Staffweiler

The Staffie Bullweiler, also known as Staffweiler, is a mixed dog whose parents are a Rottweiler and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier.

He is an intelligent dog who is loyal, and playful. He has short, coarse hair that can be black, brown, and brindle. He might have the same tan face marks as the Rottweiler does.

Staffie Bullweiler Breed History

The Staffie Bullweiler is a mix between a Rottweiler and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Other than that, little information is known about this hybrid. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier descends from the Bulldog. It is believed this breed resulted from crossing the Bulldog with the Manchester Terrier. The Staffordshire Bull Terrier was developed with the intention to create a dog that was smaller and faster in the ring, but would be gentle toward people. The first breed standard was written in the late 1830s, after the first Stafforshire Bull Terrier club was created in England. The American Kennel Club acknowledged the Staffordshire Bull Terrier in 1975. On the other hand, the Rottweiler originated in Germany. This breed descended from the Molossus, a Mastiff-type of dog the Romans used to drive cattle on their way to Germany. The Rottweiler resulted from the cross of these Molossus with native dogs from South Germany. The Romans set up colonies in southern Germany, where climate and soil were appropriate for agriculture. Here, they built up red tile villas that, 600 years later, were discovered during an excavation. The town received the name ‘das Rote Wil' (the red tile), adopting the name ‘Rottweiler’ a while after. This town was popular for cattlemen and butchers, and these people used the Rottweiler dogs to drive cattle, keep money safe, and pull carts loaded with meat. Eventually, the rail appeared and the dogs were no longer necessary. This breed became nearly extinct until the first Rottweiler club was founded in 1901 and the first breed standard was created. This breed arrived at America with German immigration in the late 1920s and it became rapidly popular. The Rottweiler was recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1931. 

Staffie Bullweiler Breed Appearance

The Staffie Bullweiler is big mixed-dog. He stands between 19 to 24 inches tall, and generally weighs from 60 to 88 pounds. They have short, straight hair, which can be black, brown, or brindle, and they can get white marks on the chest and face. This hybrid can also present the same tan marks as the Rottweiler; marks above the eyes, around the muzzle, cheeks, chest and legs. This dog has a muscular complexion, his body is compact with wide shoulders and a strong tail. They tend to be smaller than a Rottweiler, and with shorter legs. His head is wide and short, with a flat muzzle and pendant ears. They have brown, almond-shaped eyes and black, wide noses. This hybrid has powerful jaw muscles and teeth meet in scissors bite.

Staffie Bullweiler Breed Maintenance

Both of the Staffie Bullweiler’s parents are moderate shedders, so it is safe to say he will shed moderately too. However, the shedding might increase once or twice a year. His coat is short and straight, which makes dirt easy to be brushed out. Brush his fur weekly to remove loose hair and to distribute skin oils. These dogs don’t have a tendency for being smelly, so bathe him only when necessary to avoid drying out his skin. You should also brush his teeth two or three times a week to remove tartar buildup and bacteria. Trim his nails once or twice a month if they get too long. Also, check his ears weekly looking for redness, debris, or inflammation. You can clean his ears with a cotton ball and an ear cleanser.

Staffie Bullweiler Temperament

The Staffie Bullweiler is cheerful, loyal, and intelligent. These dogs are very protective towards their family and property. He will follow commands and will be easy to train, but you must remain firm as he will get stubborn from time to time. It is important to give your Staffie Bullweiler early socialization to ensure they will be friendly with children and other animals. Usually, this hybrid is very friendly with other dogs and is always looking for new friends. But if he takes more after his Rottweiler parent, he might be dog aggressive. Still, these dogs are very sensitive and caring. In order to be happy, he has to spend time with his family, playing and being handled and adored. They do not like to be alone for long periods, and if excluded they can become hostile and damaging. They are also energetic and playful dogs.

Staffie Bullweiler Activity Requirements

This mixed-dog is very energetic and has a high endurance level. He is also prone to overeating and gains weight easily, so daily exercise is necessary. Two or three 30-minute walks per day will keep them in shape. They also enjoy running leash-free in a yard or park, digging, going for a hike, and some dogs love swimming. Having a kid’s pool or taking them to a lake for a nice splash is a fantastic treat for them! These dogs are not suited for living outdoors, especially in hot and humid climates which might affect their breathing. The best environment for him is living indoors in a house, preferably in a cool weather climate or with access to a cool space on a hot day, with a fenced yard to play around in and dig.

Very loving loyal dog. Huge sook, like a big baby. He is definitely a moms boy. He can be slightly timid, and spooked easily. Very good with other dogs, will play gentle with small dogs but also likes to wrestle with dogs his size. As he has gotten older he’s become a bit wary of meeting new people/strangers, he is afraid and will resort to barking and growling if feeling cornered for a few minutes before becoming comfortable with the person. He has been socialized since a pup. He’s very friendly and affectionate to everyone in our family and friends!

I was a little nervous when I first got Daisy, I haven’t had a dog for many years. I don’t know why I felt like this as she is a joy! She’s the most happiest, energetic and loving little soul. Her training has gone well even though she still has her stubborn days. If you are thinking of getting a bullwiler, and have the time and patience I would say go for it because you won’t regret it 🐾

Gracie LOVES people. She is the opposite of leash aggressive. She prefers meeting canine friends when attached to mom or dad. When off leash she can be very nervous and submissive around other dogs but warms up and wants to play when she gets brave. She loves playing with her two big brothers of the feline variety. Incredibly smart and incredibly stubborn. Does not like to be told no or to be told to leave a room. Does not like to be disturbed when snoozing. Very vocal!! I imagine that might come from her other mixed breed groups. Follows mom around nonstop and doesn't like to be apart. Happy to be crated when family is not home. She has been struggling with some minor skin issues, itchiness and unknown environmental allergies. Very bitey as a baby and still working on it at 8 months. Much more gentle now but still wants to gnaw hands and occasionally clothes during playtime. Clearly not biting with intent to injure. Very concerning and painful when she was a tiny puppy with razor sharp teeth. Only gnaws on immediate family, only licks guests. Does not have street smarts yet. Wants to chase/play with cars when on walks. Tolerant of, loving and playful with 12 year old human sister. As a younger puppy she seemed to know not to play as rough with her. DNA determined 50% Rottie, 25% Staffordshire, 12.5% Shepherd and 12.5% Mutt. At 8 months she is weighing in at just under 50 lbs and looks like a large, muscular beagle with a small head. This is not a first time, large breed, dog owner, kind of dog. A little nervous and neurotic but fiercely loving and guarding. Honestly, she reminds me of my dearly departed chihuahua. She's a chihuahua on steroids.

couldn't ask for a better dog, he is amazing with the kids and super protective to. You have to train from day one and maintain it or they would easily push you around though. But Bruce is super intelligent and eager to learn.

Shadow is so friendly and is still like a puppy. He loves to play and run but also is happy sleeping all day. He is a power chewer and loves to eat. He can be anxious of strangers but has never showed aggression although he does suffer from separation anxiety however he loves people including children, other dogs and other animals although they are more reluctant to play ☺️ He has been good to train but plenty of repetition is needed as he can become distracted.

We rescued Georgia at 7 weeks old and only 3 lbs. She was a Black and Tan beauty and we were told she’d only be around 15 lbs. At 10 months, 45lbs, and the most energetic, athletic and smart dog, we decided we needed to know her breed! We did a DNA test and she’s 65% staffy, 25% Rottweiler, and 10% unknown. She needs rigorous excercise every day running offleash with other dogs, as well as many walks. She’s so snuggly and insists on sleeping in bed with us under the covers. Georgia is easily trained and will basically do algebra if it means she gets a treat. That said, she also has a mind of her own and is incredibly stubborn sometimes. She’s super friendly with humans and dogs and we can’t get around the block without a ton of stopping for hello’s! We were shocked Georgia grew into the dog she did (truly thought we’d adopted a tiny daschund or pinscher), but we couldn’t be more in love.

Sonny was a rescue dog so the first year it was hard to understand his fear or anxiety to normal day activities. After 2 years of love, care and trust he has become my best friend and we go everywhere we each other. Sonny is such a happy excitable and loving boy, he hasn't got the hang of socializing with other dogs yet as he is so hyper and over affectionate he can make dogs a bit defensive but sure he will get there. He loves walking, and his bubble machine ,long naps and food :P. Sonny is so easy to take care of and loves people. He is loyal and is never far from my side.

We got our little girl, Hallie about 2 months ago. She’s two and will be three on Halloween! It took her about three/four weeks to adjust to her new Mom, Dad, and Papa. She hit it off with Papa’s chihuahua/pug mix, Willy. They love to play! They love to play tug of war together, but if he’s not in the mood, she’ll put it in any human’s lap and give you the saddest puppy eyes. She’s very sweet, loving and protective. She knows who her people are. She’s very weary with new people coming into our home, but adjusts quickly when she realizes that Mom, Dad or Papa say it’s okay and she’s given her space to warm up. She’s still very weary with little kids, 8 and under. She doesn’t get ugly, but she gives a warning growl, not showing her teeth. Dad went on a business trip for three weeks and when he came back, Hallie was all over him and wouldn’t stop giving him kisses and love! This is our first dog other than family dogs, but she’s been an absolutely amazing addition to our family!

We have had him since 8 weeks old, and immediately got parvo from where we got him, almost lost him early on. But he came good and has been a loving dog to his family and those who we have invited into the house. We soon got another dog by accident one day who was a stray, they hit it off straight away when he was 2. they are the same age and the other dog is a silky terrier x. Best of mates, protective of each other and our family. They used to get up to mischief. Digging holes, ripping up sprinklers. The holes though were for them to lay in and keep cool in the summer. The sprinklers were a bit of a problem, This stopped at 5yrs of age. They were pop up sprinklers and had to put them on risers out of the ground. These days both dogs love chilling out and get excited and want to play a few times a day. He is scared of thunder storms, needs to come in side when they happen. Understands many voice commands and is a clever dog. He is healthy, was a bit overweight, but cut down the quantity of food, over a short time this fixed this. Our issue at the moment, is that 18months ago the little dog was biting at buddahs ears and he turned around with his mouth open to say 'enough', but caught the little dog in the eye, he is now blind in one eye, and he was super protective of him for a long time with anyone else other than our direct family. We didnt trust him for a period of time. But he has now grown out of this, as the little dog still has the ability to do everything easily. And we have reintroduced other people to our dogs. On our part we didnt really introduce him to other dogs early on. So he is nervous and aggressive to any dogs that come to our house and wants to be friends with other dogs on walks, but can turn aggressive if the other dog shows any aggressiveness.
