When you read all  about the apbt owners of the past, they all preferred the smaller type bulldogs 17-20in  40-55lb , they were easier to handle. But if you got a real game 20in 60lb bulldog,, not much would live them they said, but always hard getting them. Stratton, colby said this in there books. Our staffs we had in 60s.were more like pits today, ours were 16-19in 40-55lb, the lines were from old black country = w-ton, Walsall, these type I think were the ones that went over the America to start the apbt lines of the breed, I did read that they may have had hound in there as well, Reid lines were deff on the big side, my bitch I had was 20in 60lb brindle  very powerful animal,  good temp, but like been said, never relax with them, lurcher easier deff to live with lol

I dont think they paid a lot of attention to size back then mate....gameness came first and nothing else really mattered....besides which the dog is going against a dog its own size anyway but a 20" 45 lb dog is plenty big enough to keep active.

Bird are you aware of some sort of Staffordshire Bull Terrier museum up the black country somewhere.....a few folk have told me about it i just wondered whether its worth a quick visit next time im up that way.
