Introduction

The Irish Staffordshire Bull Terrier, or Irish Staffy, is an Irish form of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier although they have most of the same characteristics. This distinct and rare breed is not yet recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) but is on the United Nations Kennel Club (UNKC), Intercontinental Kennel Club (IKC), and the Dog Registry of America, Inc. (DRA). This pooch is heavier and more muscled than their cousin, at about 50 to 70 pounds. They’re both intelligent breeds with sunny dispositions, and although they were bred to be fighters, they have long outgrown that inheritance because they are loving, gentle, and loyal, making furrific family pets.

Irish Staffordshire Bull Terrier Dog Name Considerations

Irish Staffys tend to get a bad rap because of their “Pit Bull” origin, but there is nothing mean or vicious about this dog breed unless you happen to be an intruder or someone who is harming or threatening their humans. So, what kind of name should you give your Irish Staffy? Maybe a good Irish, English, or Gaelic name? Or you can choose to name your pooch for the color of their coat. They can come in many different colors, but the most common include brindle, pied, white, black, blue, fawn, and red. 

Sometimes, you may get a sense of what their name should be if you wait a few days to get a glimpse of their true personality. Give them a couple of days to get comfortable and see what kind of dog attitude is hiding underneath. Then again, you may want to choose something that reminds you of Ireland like Shamrocks, Guinness beer, potatoes, the color green, tea, leprechauns, luck, pot of gold, rainbows, and Saint Patrick’s Day. Maybe you just want to give your Irish Staffy a regular dog name like Fido or Fluffy. That is okay too. Just remember that when you are at the dog park, and you call your dog, you may get 20 dogs running to you if you choose a common name like that.
