Description

The American Bull Staffy is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the American Bulldog and the American Staffordshire Terrier. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in any of the breeds in the hybrid. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Doobie the American Bull Staffy (American Bulldog / American Staffordshire Terrier mix) at 3 years old—"I rescued Doobie. He was about 1 or so, but nobody could tell me at the time. He has been the most emotional animal I have ever raised, but I love him for it. Smart enough to count to ten, hunt hogs and tell when I've been thru the ringer. Hands down the sweetest dog I've ever met. I love this animal. He isn't leash trained because he doesn't leave my side. He is emotionally attached, and used to have separation anxiety. But that didn't last long with me. He travels with me for work, plays disc golf with me on the weekends and snores louder than my laptop speakers."

Doobie the American Bull Staffy (American Bulldog / American Staffordshire Terrier mix) at 3 years old—"He loves babies, small children and all dogs. I eventually found the first owners of Doobie, formally Bowie. He was in a one bedroom apartment with a young couple. They had 2 kids learning to walk. I'm happy he was never abused."
