    Yerp they're originally bred to hunt pigs.
    And as for the "risk" associated with amstaffs it's no different to any other dog it's not the breed its how u treat them no one dog breed is more probe to aggression than another it's how they're treated IMO I love staffies they're beautiful gentle loyal dogs I hate the people see them as fighting dogs vicious etc its so narrow minded.
    Anywho yes they're very athletic we had our cross breed running at 20 k beside our ute many times very playful too. He loves the beach and being short hair no prob with heat
    I hear a lot its how you raise them but know better. I dont think fighting dogs are viscous etc as a matter of fact the breed started going to h*ll after they outlawed blood sports since they no longer were "tested" see when they fought dogs they were right in the ring face to face with the dogs, they had to break them up and who the heck would do that with a dog that would bite or redirect aggression thats why these breeds are so great with people if they wernt they were culled and not bred to pass it on. I had one little girl that was raised around other dogs and raised well. She hit maturity and would damn near kill herself to get to another animal to kill it, its ingrained in them and so I am just not one to take the risk, if it never happens awesome but just a risk I wont take.

    I had many come into rescue because they had hit maturity and attacked or killed a family pet the people were shocked that their dog who was raised with the cat or other animal had done this and thought they were bad dogs, they werent they were just doing what they were bred to do no reason to hold it against the dog.

    Just like if I had a pig farm I wouldnt have a pig dogging breed there is always that risk. I love staffys and if I had no other animals I would get one in a heart beat.

    They look very similar to my dog, except she is black with a white star on her chest. She was weighing in at about 50kgs but as she is older is holding a little more weight.

    She was sold to me as a dane x. I think mastiff x, my dh thinks pit bull x. I will have to see if I can find a pic. Many have commented she looks just like a bull arab.

    That's fair enough reason. Though even if they are bread to be pigging dogs generally it still has to be taught and trained into them .We had alot of rescue cats dogs come to us when I wa growing up my mum did aid for animals we had our own english staffy girl who stopped feeding her 7 week old pups to feed 13 abandoned tiny kittens. But the worst dogs I found we had come to us were the little cross breed terrier things they had been treated so badly they were either terrified or aggressive. Where as the bigger dogs. Took to people and other animals alot quicker and better
