"Zimba" A Working Stafford
This is a very difficult article to write. We are now light years removed from the era I am about to describe and the climate of public opinion today, brainwashed by an irresponsible, hysterical media, which would lead one to believe that any dog with 'bull' in its...
There is a new Hall Of Fame for Staffords
Grand Champion Duke
Grand Champion Rocky
how was he bred ? pm me
Sire: "Springview's Ch. Jim" Dam: "Springview's Jess"
Paddy is the sire of Tyger,he passed away aged 13/14 years and was one of the few remaining pure bred red strain dogs left in England,though I'm sure there are some good specimens still around....
The FFBs originally started their kennels with Staffordshire Bull Terriers, which in fact they still own. Their first bitch called Betty, was out of K .C. lines and was bred back to the notable Game Flash. After they had schooled her for some time, she was eventually put open for show. Her first...
The reason for my writing this article, is because we have all heard of "Jocko" and most of us have read about how good he was in his days back in Ireland, but what most newcomers fail to realise are the contributory factors that made the dog so good.
Obviously there is conditioning and...
I have just read a short article about a dog called Brindle Devil (a staff I think) owned by willie deleaney.
Does anyone have any info on this dog and maybe a picture to go with it?
Thanks in advance
Red Dart Of Asquith

The "Red Dart Of Asquith" was a top producing bitch for the "Dublin Red" strain of Stafford,most notably she was the Dam to "Leo","Buzz","Josh" and "Ch.Red Joe".She is pictured above(left)with "Danns...
There has been a lot of recent interest in Staffordshire and English bull terriers on this forum. Since they were the original bulldawgs I thought some people maybe interested in reading this article.
Some interesting match results of APBT's verus Staffordshire bull terriers and EBT's in the...

Old Staff Pics 1930s
The background to the Dublin Red Strain is made up of descendants of Ch. Gentleman Jim, both Brindle Devil and Bankhead Bullfighter, were from his lines and were exported to Ireland from England.
In the middle of the 1950's, Harry Payne from Yorkshire, England mated his bitch "Chelmont Grand...

Kilwilkie Lad by Barry Ligget
This is a tale from the 1960's when life was much different and far less complicated for working dogs and their owners. In those not-so-far-off days the Irish Kennel Club organised working trials for Terriers in two distinct categories, "Strong Dogs" and...
Some staffie info, i got
The Flynn Strain
Regarded as one of the gamest of the Stafford lines the Flynn Strain certainly has had its share of good dogs worthy of admiration. It all started with two brothers who liked the game trial dogs such as the Wheaten Terriers and the Staffordshire Bull...
Game is as game does, Rocca JR
Although most American bull Terrier owners and American Staffordshire Terrier fanciers would like to pretend otherwise, both of these breeds are not only one and the same, they are also direct descendants of the Staffordshire Bull Terrier of England and...
Springview's GR CH Jim
Sire: Ch.RedJoe Dam: Guests Ginger
Jim is a Great Grand sire of Tyger and was a true representative of the old type working Stafford, deep game and said by his owner to be "one of the best ever to look thru' a collar". He was rolled as a youngster into "Dann's...
Some old Stafford photos
Although in the context of Kennel Club recognition the Staffordshire Bull Terrier is a relatively 'new breed', on the basis of the many drawings available, a Stafford-like animal existed at the turn of the 19th Century. A classic example is "Crib and Rosa", a painting by Abraham Cooper, circa...
No dogs are physically tougher than Staffords, for they seem almost impervious to pain. I have seen my own bitch, which is "broken" to ferrets, go into the ferret pen to see what she can scrounge. One of the ferrets "pinned" her through the lip and hung on, which must have been pretty painful. Yet...
I'm curious to know what this line could (has) bring to the fold.
I see a lot of interest & lads from both sides of the pond being very happy with what they have & good luck to you. Like i say,i'm curious & would like to hear your opinions/views.
The base or history is more known from the the...
Any one got any write ups on the dog? I no he was on the fair and square yard for a while but you dont really hear much of him.....
to answer your question Jacko, to my knowledge the dog's got a reputation for halfway working 1 badger and an unearned and made up reputation to make the dog and owner look good. of course, they say all generalizations are false and I wasnt there at the time of the testing, but i have seen over and...
