Is American Staffordshire Terrier Playful?
Looking to adopt an American Staffordshire Terrier and need to know whether American Staffordshire Terrier is a playful breed and fun to be around?
According to dog experts, American Staffordshire Terrier Dogs score out of 5 in the scale of the most playful dog breeds.
One of the things we adore about canines is their playfulness. But some breeds are usually more playful than others.
So, in the spirit of a great time, we combed through our breed profiles to find the canine breeds that tend to be the most fun loving. It's vital to bear in mind that most of these breeds are not couch potatoes or shrinking violets and, in fact, typically need lots of mental and physical stimulation so they don't become bored.
You should keep in mind that all dogs are individuals - not all Labs are infatuated with playing fetch, and there are most likely even some Portuguese Water Dogs who don't like water.
Of course, with any of these breeds, a dog's health and age will affect his level of liveliness. So even with these breeds, you should have a vet analyze your canine to make sure there are no underlying conditions before initiating any exuberant activities.
