What Is a Staffy Mixed Breed?

A Staffy mixed breed is when a Staffordshire Bull Terrier or American Staffordshire Terrier (a type of Staffy) has been bred with a different dog breed, such as a German Shepherd, Labrador, or Jack Russell.

This means that the dog will be half Staffy/AmStaff and half of the other dog breed.

What Can a Staffy Be Crossed With?

A Staffy can be crossed with many different dog breeds, of all shapes and sizes. 

Some of the larger breeds that Staffordshire Bull Terriers are crossed with are:

  • Labrador
  • German Shepherd
  • Border Collie

Some of the smaller breeds include:

  • Chihuahua
  • French Bulldog
  • Dachsund

Of course, some Staffy crossbreeds are more popular than others, the Bullmastiff and American Bulldog being the most popular. The Poodle and Kelpie are lesser-known. 

What Is the Best Staffy Cross?

There’s no “best” Staffy cross, it all depends on what you’re looking for in a mixed breed dog. Some Staffy crosses are larger than others, more energetic, and live longer, so there are a lot of variables when it comes to Staffy crosses.
