Nobody knows the time of this breed origin exactly. Some researches think it's 1936. This year the breed was registered at American Kennel Club. This is not correct opinion. The breed history goes far to XIX, when first settlers from UK arrived to North America and took the dogs with them. That time the dogs were much less than nowadays.

American Staffordshire Terriers were used in violent bull and bear hunting sports. In 1835 these bloody contests were closed and people became fond of dog fighting.
