    I've recently purchased an american staffordshire terrior and have had no problems with temparment whatsoever. He is although very vocal, particularly when bored. He may bark or even growl when he wants attention, or is disrupted during sleep for instance. Is this something I should be concerned about?
    I've researched the breed and have had a staff cross ridgeback before, who's temparment is wonderful, he is the most cooperative family dog we've ever had. Now I'm at home on my own with a 3mt old Amstaff and am concerened these puppy traits may turn into something more sinister when he's older.

    I would make sure he doesn't get bored for starters. Staffies are very vocal dogs, Bella will bark when she hears a noise, when she wants to place, she will growl when she is scratching her back or playing with a toy. The most important thing is to ensure he is well trained and socialised with plenty of other dogs, people and places and you shouldn't have an issue.

    There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face.

    Our dogs only barks when people pass by the side fence - hardly growl - only when they annoy each other

    I'd recommend discussing it with the breeder of your pup. They would be happy to give your guidance.
