Some people say that the American Staffordshire and the American Pitbull Terrier are one and the same breed. They in fact are not. The After leaving Europe, the American Staffordshire was changed a bit to produce the American Pitbull Terrier. Though these two breeds are similar they re not the same dog. The AST was bred to be a bigger dog with more pronounced features, but still with some of the drive of the APBT. Nevertheless, both breeds are outstanding bulldog breeds.
