Dog Names and Breeds

General Information about Dogs

It is one of several breeds commonly known as pit bulls.[2][3] In the early part of the twentieth century the breed gained social stature and was accepted by the American Kennel Club as the American Staffordshire Terrier in 1936.[4] The name was changed to reflect difference from the Staffordshire Bull Terrier of England. Many of the dogs Washington kept were descended from Brooke's, and when crossed with the French hounds, helped to create the present day American Foxhound. Between hairless AHT to coated AHT or Rat Terrier, results are more variable and will produce mixed hairless litters to all coated litters. The American Foxhound is an energetic breed. In coated to coated matings, all puppies will be coated. Owners will often have their American Foxhounds undergo blood tests so that the condition can be caught early on. The cross of Bulldog and Terrier was called by several names, including Bull-and-Terrier Dog, Pit Bull, or Half and Half.[5] Later, it assumed the name of Staffordshire Bull Terrier in England.

Interesting facts about Dogs

This is actually one reason that this breed does not do well in city settings. Most show hounds are Walkers, many of the pack hounds (used with hunting foxes on horseback) are Penn-Marydel and hunters use a variety of strains to suit their hunting style and quarry. It is not uncommon for an American Bulldog to require a high level of attention due to their highly emotional personality. The American Staffordshire Terrier also known as Amstaff is a medium-sized, short-coated American dog breed. Eye color is usually brown, but heterochromia also occurs, although considered a cosmetic fault. The basic types are companion dogs, guard dogs, hunting dogs, herding dogs, and working dogs, although there are many other types and subtypes. Colors, while historically predominantly white with patches of red, black, or brindle, have grown in recent years to include many color patterns including black, red, brown, fawn, and all shades of brindle.
