The breed was originally called the Bull-and-Terrier Dog, Half and Half, or Pit Dog.Eventually, it became known in England as the Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Sadly, the dogs were most commonly used for fighting until the early 20th century when dog fighting was made illegal.American Stafford shire Terriers are commonly quite food motivated which facilitates learning and training, thus furthering the dogs bond to the family.
