Australians love their furry friends, but do you know the most common breed in your area?
Tell us where you are located to find the most popular breed in your region:
Although popularised by United States breeding, the American Staffordshire Terrier originally comes from the United Kingdom. They are notable for their short-haired, multi-coloured coat and surprising strength for their size. Their thin coat and bulky affection for humans means they prefer staying indoors, but those who own this loveable breed can expect plenty of fast-paced activity, spontaneous play times, and the occasional bout of mischief. You can often tell an American Staffordshire Terrier by its spotted face with an off-colour accent around its eyes or mouth.
