Staffies are one breed of dog who love our Bella and Boots packs. Officially named Staffordshire Bull Terriers, they’re medium-sized, well-muscled and bouncing with energy. They come in a multitude of colours: black, white, red, fawn, brindle, blue or any interesting mix. Their coats are short and smooth, easy to maintain with a non-frequent brush.
Staffies were bred in the 1800s by crossing the bulldog with a terrier — a fox terrier or something similar — creating an agile, quick and high-demand dog. 150 years after its inception, Southampton University included staffy’s on a top 10 list of dog breeds best suited for families and households with small children. From the 20th century to now, they have been known to be highly intelligent, eager to please, people-friendly and readily adaptable to different situations.
They can thrive in smaller, apartment living with attentive play time, plenty of food and some training. Once you accept a Staffie into your family, you never go back.
Rescue organisations like SCARS
and the RSPCA
may have a variety of Staffies waiting to be homed with a loving family, but if you are dedicated to finding a Staffie puppy, you can check out the ethical breeders in Queensland

Bella and Boots food packs are great for staffies to help with possible skin and joint issues. The beef and turmeric pack aids with inflammation and joint mobility, flushing out unwanted toxins and restoring the balance of gut bacteria. The vegetables and herbs in many of our food packs, including flaxseed and pepitas, help keep coat and skin shiny and smooth.
