STANDARD PART 1
General impression: The American Staffordshire Terrier should give the impression of great strength for his size, a well put-together dog, muscular, but agile and graceful. Keenly alive to his surrounding. He should be stocky, non long-legged or racy in outline. His courage is proverbial.
