"Brandy is a Cross between an Irish Wolfhound, which is dad and a Staffordshire Bull Terrier which is mum. Her litter all looked like purebred Staffys apart from Brandy and her twin sister. As you can see she has a muzzle slightly longer than the average Staffy which she uses highly (Wolfhound), she hates it when anyone smokes around her, so we don't!! She also likes to sniff the air when I am driving. Her coat is very soft and stands about two inches long, but it doesn't malt much. She is predominantly black with brown "lowlights" and small strip of white on her chest and a white "soul patch" under her chin."


The Staffy Bull Wolfhound is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Staffordshire Bull Terrier and the Irish Wolfhound. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

Brandy the Irish Wolfhound / Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix breed dog at 10 months old—"We were her third owners at the tender age of 8 months and she has settled with us amazingly. A month into having her we moved to a new house and she didn't even notice. She is incredibly intelligent (Staff), stubborn (Staff), but real easy to train. Snores (Staff) and lies like a Staff with her back paws splayed out to look like turkey drumsticks. We left her for 7 hours in the house and not a mess in sight. On a previous occasion when she was still in her cage she managed to damage it by breaking off the bars and stuck her head through it, but we saw she was so good outside of it we never got her another one. We know she sleeps on the beds when we are not here, but she has the common sense not to get caught doing it!! We always get comments on how cute she is. She is amazing with kids. I have two girls ages 5 and 10. She is extremely patient with them, even when they dress her up!!!! When we first got her she wasn't very confident, but she has grown so quickly in the two months we've had her, she is now able to approach all dogs to play, to date these have been Boxers and a Dalmatian."

Brandy the Irish Wolfhound / Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix breed dog as a puppy—"She is extremely fast, but has the Staff waddle when she is just walking. She is very loyal. She has a friend which is a male English Bull Terrier and when his owners grandson was trying to get the ball off of him, Brandy barked furiously at the grandson, but didn't go for him. This to date has been the only time I've heard her bark fully. If the door knocks she "gruffs" which suits us fine. She likes her meat and only eats the dry food when it has meat, but loves carrots!! We hope she stays this height, but we will still love her if she gets bigger. We have been very, very lucky with having her. Even in the mornings she will wait patiently to go out; be fed, but not to be played with. She will get her toys and dump them on your lap."
