From the Inside Flap
In every sense, the American Staffordshire Terrier is both gamester and guardian. As a gamester, this sturdy, athletically built canine is always ready to join its family for a romp, a long walk or any activity its owners wish to pursue. As a guardian, the AmStaff's proverbial courage propels it to stand between its loved ones and whatever threatens. These sleek dogs make gentle playmates. These sleek dogs make gentle playmates for small children, ready-for-anything partners for active teenagers or adults and patient, understanding friends for the elderly. As a companion, the American Staffordshire Terrier presents a long list of advantages. The breed enjoys robust good health and the short coat is easy to care for. Eager to please and always willing to learn, the AmStaff adds a special dimension to every life it touches. Talk to any owner of an AmStaff and you will soon realize the deep, well-deserved devotion they have for their dogs. But be prepared to listen, because friends of this breed have much to say.
