Pet Travel Question: Importing Staffordshire Terriers

Name: Sharon
Number of Pets: 1
Pet Type: Dog
Pet Breed: Staffodshire Bull Terrier
From: UK
To: US

I am inquiring for a friend moving to the US with his Staffie. I have heard that Staff's may not be able to enter the US from abroad. This would devastate him. Literally, this dog IS his family. She's not aggressive (except for licking you to death). Is this a cut and dry regulation or are the dog's past and temperament taken into consideration?

Thank you,

Hi Sharon,

The United States is actually one of the easier places to bring a pet, and as far as I know there are no regulations banning the import of Staffies. Here are the import requirements for the US -- take a look and please contact us if you have any more questions.

For future reference, you can also read more about Staffordshire Terriers and breed-specific legislation on our blog. Good luck with everything!
