    Staffordshire Bull Terrier Did You Know?


    The Staffordshire Bull Terrier was recognized by the Kennel Club of England in 1935.


    First club show for the breed took place in August 1935 at Cradley Heath in the West Midlands where 60 dogs and bitches were entered.


    The breed was admitted to registration in the American Kennel Stud Book effective October 1,1974.


    Authorities generally agree that the breed can be traced back to the Mastiff-like dogs through the old Bulldog which, when crossed with British terriers, produced the first "Bull and Terriers."


    The old-fashioned Bulldog was a fierce, courageous animal used in the sports of bear- and bull-baiting as early as the mid-sixteenth century.


    The first two members of their sex to claim championships in England were the bitch, Lady Eve and the dog, Gentleman Jim in 1939.
