The historic routes reach the Roman Empire where the predecessors of Staffordshire Bull Terrier (SBT) were used for fighting against bulls. When the Romans conquered the England their dogs got to the island together with the soldiers. These dogs of the “bully” type created the basis for Staffords. The bull fights in England were run untill the end of 19th century till the illegalization in 1930`s.

The breeding was started by the working class in Staffordshire. The breed was created by the cross-breed of English bulldog and and terrier. The dogs were known as Staffordshire Bull and Terrier. The breed was recognized by FCI before 1935 ( FCI No. 76, group 3 – terriers) under the name Staffordshire Bull Terrier. The club was founded on 25th of May 1935.
