This is a crusading book, one which looks at the much loved Staffordshire bull terrier breed, and asks whether the current standards are drifting too far away from the original concept of the breed which should represent agility, fitness and courage.  Comparisons are made between the present English type and the Irish which are more in line with the dogs which used to be bred. 

The author reveres the memory and work of the old pioneers and respectfully points out their views on what our objectives should be in breeding this great breed.  He believes the Irish Staffordshire is very much the old type of dog and hopes that more will be done to bring all Staffordshires back to taller and fitter dogs.
