History

The American Staffordshire Terrier or Amstaff (different to the American Pitbull Terrier), is a breed of dog type Terrier well known worldwide.

It is a young breed of dog from the USA.. Among his ancestors are, Besides of Terrier, the Old english bulldog.

In England and North America, dog fighting had a tradition dating back to ancient times.. The Old english bulldog was sent to fight bulls in the arenas of animal fighting. Although Old english bulldog are the forerunners of Bulldogs of today, his physique was much more similar to the current one American Staffordshire Terrier. After animal fighting was officially banned, continued illegally; In the USA. until today. Its origin in the 19th century was the black county of central England, called Staffordshire. Workers from the coal mines and clay pits crossed the Old english bulldog with the terriers. In the official scene of the fight against animals such crosses had been prohibited. It was feared that the fighting power and toughness of the Bulldog will combine with the predatory acuity of the terriers, which would lead to uncontrollable fighting machines. In the illegality of the backyards nobody cared. This is how he was born “Bull and Terrier” and very quickly came to the US. There they liked to call them “Pit Bulls”. Pit is the name given to the dogfighting ring.

In 1898 was founded the “United Kennel Club” (UKC), who wanted to take over the breeding of these dogs. But the UKC was nothing more than a professional dogfighting organizer. So the community was divided around these dogs. Lovers of Pit Bull they condemned dog fighting, they wanted a friendly family dog. In the meantime, the Pit Bulls they had earned a great reputation in US society. In World War, the courage of Pit Bulls became a stimulus for the combat power of American troops. Even celebrities like the President of the United States Theodore Roosevelt showed up with the Pit Bulls.

On cinemas, “The Little Rascals”, a gang of kids with a dog, was very popular and was featured in 220 episodes between 1922 and 1944. The dog was the guardian and protector, children's playmate and dildo. This dog was a Pitbull. He later became the first dog registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) for the new breed “Staffordshire terrier“. To draw a clear line at the fighting dog scene, the AKC had insisted on a name change. The first standard was published in 1936. In 1972 there was the second name change to “American Staffordshire Terrier” to distinguish it from its British relative. The Amstaff, what's been called since then, Is higher, bigger and heavier. He is still cared for by “American Staffordshire Terrier Club of America”, who from the beginning clearly condemned dog fighting and trusted his upbringing as a family dog.

In many countries, its social discrimination as a fighting machine and the technically unjustifiable classification as “dangerous dog breed” they have hit him hard.

They are of athletic constitution and their breeding focuses mainly on the character and performance of the functional dog..

Are advised to socialize with other dogs from puppies to make to adult aggression towards these minor.

Currently the breed is going through a difficult time due to bastardization with other breeds for commercial reasons where massive dogs are sought, deformed, with exaggerated heads or true color, by having more acceptance and one greater than the APBT quote pure. There has also been crossbreeding by neophyte breeders who have crossed pitbulls cigars with dogs of similar breeds and even with dogs without breed. In this case these mixtures are no longer American Pit Bull and therefore their behavior will never be the same as that of a pure blood.

The American Pit Bull Terrier is recognized only by two records, ADBA and UKC, unlike the latter, the ADBA has the largest number of copies due to its defence and promotion of the breed.

Affenpinscher History

Type dogs Affenpinscher They are known since about 1600, years. At that time, they were somewhat bigger. Images Affenpinscher set in sixteenth-century German paintings

It's name derives from the German Affe (monkey). The race is ancient and prior to the Griffon Bruxellois and Miniature Schnauzer.

The race was created to be a buzzard, working to eliminate rodents from kitchens, barns and stables.

The first draft of the standard is from 1908 and it is not until the year 1913 when the first official standard is recognized.

Did you know??

Sometime in the 18th or early 19th century, someone had the brilliant idea to raise the Affenpinscher in reduced size, allowing him to become a popular pet by becoming a companion to the ladies.

Physical Characteristics of the Affenpinscher

One Affenpinscher, generally, weights from 2,9 to 6,0 kg and measures of 23 to 30 centimeters tall. It has hard and rough hair, which make him look like a monkey (hence its name, because Affe means monkey in german). Its coat is coarse on the head and shoulders forming a mane, with a lower layer on the front and rear quarters.

The FCI and KC of breed standards, specifies that the layer of hair should be black, but the AKC also allows other colors like gray, Silver, black and tan, and beige (a mixture of Brown, black and white red hairs); other clubs have their own lists of acceptable colors, but black is preferential.

Character and skills

They have a character other than what we associate with Terrier. They differ from Terrier how they tend to get along with other dogs and pets. They are active, adventurous, curious and stubborns, but also cheerful and playful. Because they are affectionates with the family members, the protection is a must to whom they love. It is necessary that, they have a clear education, coherent, if not, you can be very difficult. The training must be varied because the dog can get bored easily.

The Affenpinschers they are somewhat territorial when it comes to their toys and food, That's the reason they are not recommended for younger children. This dog is very quiet, but it can become very aggressive if it feels attacked or threatened and does not show fear towards any aggressor.

Their life expectancy is around twelve years , is a typical life cycle of a purebred dog, but slightly shorter than most breeds its size.

Observations

During moulting it lost much hair, so it is advisable to a good brushed daily and a good diet. The better the quality of the best food will be the State of the fur of your dog. A diet low in fat, salts, iodine, Vitamin B, will result in dryness and hair loss.

The Affenpinscher it is a delicate dog that often suffers from intestinal problems.

Affenpinscher Health

All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, just as all people have the potential to inherit a particular disease. Run, do not walk, from any breeder that does not offer a health guarantee on puppies, to tell you that the breed is 100 percent healthy and has no known problems, or tell you that your puppies are isolated from the main part of the home for health reasons. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about the breed's health problems and the incidence with which they occur in their lines..

The monkeys it is a fairly healthy small breed, but individual dogs can develop orthopedic problems like dislocated kneecaps, a common knee condition in small dogs. Affen are also prone to skin conditions that can lead to flank hair loss..

Not all of these conditions are detectable on a growing puppy, and it is impossible to predict if an animal will be free of these diseases, so you must find a trusted breeder who is committed to raising the healthiest animals possible. Must be able to produce independent certification that the dog's parents (and grandparents, etc.) have been examined for common defects and considered healthy for breeding. That's where health records come in..

Don't fall for the lies of a bad breeder. If the breeder tells you that you do not need to do these tests because you have never had problems in your lines, their dogs have been “reviewed by the veterinarian”, or any of the other excuses bad breeders give for skimping on genetic testing of their dogs, leave immediately.

Careful breeders screen their breeding dogs for genetic diseases and breed only the healthiest, best-looking specimens., but sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas and a puppy develops one of these diseases despite good husbandry practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that in most cases dogs can still live a good life. If you are going to have a puppy, ask the breeder about the ages of the dogs in their lines and what they died of.

Remember that after you have welcomed a new puppy into your home, has the power to protect you from one of the most common health problems: the obesity. Keep a Affenpinscher with a proper weight is one of the easiest ways to prolong your life. Make the most of your preventive skills to help ensure a healthier dog for life.

Some Affen they have fur that falls somewhere in between. Whatever type of coat you have, the typical monkeys looks clean but a little hairy. You can be sure it will have leaves and twigs in its fur after being outdoors., so you need regular grooming to maintain your appearance.
