The American Staffordshire Terrier is a breed of dog. These dogs are related to, and were bred to be a show strain of the American Pit Bull Terrier. American Staffordshire Terriers were first recognized by the American Kennel Club in 1936. The visual difference between American pit Bull Terriers and staffies is that you will never find a staffie with a red nose but APBT's come with red and black noses. To differentiate between blacknose APBT's and Staffies is the white part of the eye should not be visible on the staffie but it should be visible on the APBT, the only way for the difference to be in effect is that the dog has to be looking perfectly straight.
