    Default Which is which

    American Staffordshire Bull Terriers are the medium/large dogs normally with a 'normal length nose' and larger stature.

    English Staffordshire Bull Terriers are small/medium dogs normally with a smaller 'squished' looking nose and are sometimes referred to as 'kegs on legs'. They can be quite stocky but seem to have a smaller head than an am staff

    Neither are mine,

    Bad breeding can cause squished up noses, too much bull in blood & not enough terrier, the perfect Stafford should be 50% bull & 50% terrier, imo that is what my boy is 50% both Bull & Terrier in he's blood & if i may say, Cleasanta's SBT'S are 50% of both bull & terrier

    OK, plan B.... have you tried her on macrolone at 1 tab per day for 3 -4 days then 2nd daily till settled?
    thereafter perhaps a couple of days worth every month or so.

    If not, get your vet to look into the relationship between SPF & macrolone. I have heard of others (including Vickii in the SPR forum) having success with this.

    Good Luck!!

    I think a keg on legs describes them pretty well. My SBT is a big boy, with an awesome temprament. Couldn't have asked for a better dog. He is not really enjoying this heat we have been having lately in adelaide poor bugger
