    Some staffs still used for hog catching.If you could find someone who is using them for this I think you could get a decent one.If he would part with one.I mean at least you would give yourself a chance to have one that had some type of ability.

    I guess the reason solid working SBT never truly took hold in the USA is because there are too many good working APBTs in our own back yards. If anyone knows other reasons please add.

    I agree with you. Much more variety and easier to find good APBT. You have to be a real stafford fancier to go through the work of finding a good one in the states. But if you do the work you can find a good one.

    That photo almost looks like an old black n white photo.Both are nice looking dogs but are they both workers?I have a friend with a small 40lb male BT that has a great build on him he makes a really good watch dog.He got the dog off a woman that could'nt handle him anymore,,,he loves his BT.How many pounds are both those dogs?I would imagine the pups full grown will be 40 to 50lbs???? Nice photo...!

    A guy named Don Mathews (Konfederate Kennels) in GA used to have some Staffords that were workers. He mostly has American Bulldogs for hog hunting and bite work. When I talked to him about possibly getting a Stafford a few years ago he didn't have any at the time but was expecting to get a few more working Staffordshire Bull Terriers. I ended up buying a different pup and haven't talked to him since. The stafford section is not up on his webpage anymore. But if he doesn't have any maybe he knows someone who does.

    Don Matthews had a dog named turbo was about 31 or 32 pounds and Bionic kennels got turbo from don Matthews. and we had our Stafford in a competition to on the hogs 8 or 9 years ago My dog and Don dog was the only two staff in the competition the rest are pitbulls.

    I spoke to Don not long ago and he said he doesn't keep any staffords anymore because he was concentrating on his American Bulldog hybrids. Said he still loves the SBT

    yes Don did have some other Staffordshire Bull Terriers there for a while then he got out of it I suppose to focusing on his American Bulldogs. Turbo was a very nice looking dog very athletic and work very well
