Welcome to Big Cedar Amstaffs

Meet Our American Staffordshire Terriers

GCH CH Sha-D Blue's Can't Miss,


"Amos" is the Amstaff who started me on my journey of loving Amstaffs.  Smart, eager, and giving, he taught me the value of training and brought many new friends into my life.  Pictured here he is on the start line to compete in NACS vehicle nose work search. In addition to his current titles, Amos has trained in obedience, agility, rally and barn hunt. 

He is of Royal Court, Rowdytown, Whiterock, and Benmar lineage

"Hazel" is a beautiful brindle girl who is busy all the time. She loves children which is why she trains as therapy dog.  Pictured here she has just completed a therapy dog visit to a local nursing home. We have future plans to participate in the Read to Rover program.

Puppies & Planned Breedings

 Eric X Princess

 5 girls/2 boys born 10/27/19!

A few pics below.  Contact me for more info

We are honored that Lacey Keller, LBK Kennels,  allowed us to breed our Princess to BIS BISS Multi-Champion Rebel Eric de Cans Juansa.  I'm thrilled with Eric's structure and see it as an opporunity towards preserving the breed's appearance.  This is a side illustration of proper structure.  See photo gallery for more pics of Eric.

Breed History

There are many sources of information about the American Staffordshire Terrier.   Below you will find several links to read.  To know one is to love them and to that end, I've included information about why breed specific legislation does not work. 




ATTS:  https://atts.org/about-atts/  The American Temperament Society is a national, not for profit organization for the promotion of uniform temperament evaluation of pure-bred and spayed/neutered mix-breed dogs.  The average overall pass rate is 83.4%.  Here are some interesting comparison of scores... 

  • American Staffordshire Terrier:  85.5%
  • Toy Poodle:  78.9%
