How long do Staffordshire bull terriers live?

Answer

Staffordshire bull terriers have a life expectancy of between 10 and 16 years, similar to that of many middle-sized dogs. Also referred to as "Staffies," these dogs measure from 13 to 16 inches high and weigh between 23 and 38 pounds, with males typically bigger than females.

These dogs have short fur, which makes grooming easy. The more common health problems for this breed include hip dysplasia, mast cell tumors and eye problems. Originally bred for bull baiting, Staffordshire bull terriers are strong, intelligent, outgoing dogs who require a firm master and thorough socializing. These dogs have a great deal of energy and need frequent exercise.
