It is actually really good. Feel free to ask about your breed although it may take me some time to type it and unfortunately it doesnt have all breeds
Here is a snippet of whats written of my breed........(not writing the whole thing it is 5 pages long lol) it also includes a lovely story about a fighting dog and his master however it is not something I wish to share on an open forum.
The American Staffordshire Terrier & American Pit Bull Terrier
"The Sturdy Staffordshire"
Rugged as the region of rills and the hard-hearted miners in England who gave him his name, the Staffordshire Terrier is not a tunneller or a digger but a fighter of distinction. The dog was originally bred for the fighting pits of the nineteenth century and his prowess in the ring, the pit, and the backwoods of America have brought him enduring fame. This dog is a product of cross breeding the bulldog and a terrier, most likely the fox terrier-former giving the gravity of a square fighting dog; the latter offering him tenacity and agility. The direct descendant of the Bull Terrier came to the United States in 1870 where he became known as the Yankee Terrier or the American Pit Bull Terrier.
Crossing the Atlantic gave the Staffordshire Terrier an advantage in size and conformation, as these were both stressed in the dogs American breeding. Now outweighing his English cousin by some ten pounds, the American dog is still a feisty fighter, a fine watchdog and a scanner of scoundrels. They say, in fact, that this dog can determine evil intent from slack manner in anyone. Just as he once had to size up an opponent in the cruel pit, he can cast a quick eye on a man and come up with an appropriate strategy of demeanour.
The Lore of the Dog
In spite of the dogs reputation as a rapacious fighter, the properly trained Pit Bull can become an excellent house pet, guardian and childrens friend. In fact, the animal is especially gentle with children. The dog is not as quick-trigger as the stories make him out to be; he is affable and companionable. However he will fight when his territory is threatened or when provoked by other dogs.
That well known instinct, the will to win, is deeply bred and will not go away; but the image of a killer, waiting to tear apart his victim, is not even present in many of the myths of old. More famous than the dogs ferocity is his ability to accept punishment with equanimity. There are lots of stories that tell of a dog that can literally be wrapped around a crushing tyre as the car is moving, and yet the dog will come up smiling. The Pit Bull Terrier has a great code of honour, a brave heart, a winning manner. He knows he is better than most of the folks who own him.
One word best describes the sturdy Staffordshire: Indestructible!
All in all a good read! I particularly like the bolded parts
