Gamestaff Staffordshire Bull Terriers Canada was founded by Dave and Arlene Lygo in the early 80’s in Alberta, Canada. Their first dogs; Brindle Beauty of Cradbury and Cradbury’s Black-country American, became the foundation for this line.

davezekeThis line of dogs have been bred back on dogs descending from these two Staffords in an unbroken chain for 30 years.

All the way to today, Gamestaff dogs are produced by Gamestaff dogs with some of the best blood available in the world added along the way. A line of dogs doesn’t get “started”, it gets built over generations of breedings based on the best. This is what we mean by the Gamestaff line of dogs.

Since the beginning, Gamestaff Staffordshire Bull Terriers has been associated with sound dogs and people who are devoted to a particular “type” of Stafford.

A Gamestaff dog is meant to live it’s life as a member of the family. They do many “dog” things, but at the end of the day, these are “all purpose” family dogs, most at home being with their people.




Gamestaff is not about following modern trends, fads, or ideals with our dogs. We value historically accurate lines and programs. Our interest in this breed has always been and will continue to be the preservation of the traits of what the Staffordshire Bull Terrier was created to be. If you are coming to us expecting the trendiest color or exaggerated heads, weights, or other features, you are barking up the wrong tree. Our aim as a breeder is to keep a line of dogs alive and viable in Canada that is indistinguishable from the foundation dogs in this breed both in looks, capabilities, and temperament.

Gamestaff is about preserving the traditional Staffordshire Bull Terrier.


Nothing More, Nothing Less.
