Temperament Comes First!
 Since 1960 Willynwood has been striving to produce the ultimate American Staffordshire Terrier, distinguished by a combination of true breed type and ideal temperament.

Willynwood Kennel is owned and operated by William F. Peterson. In over 60 years of breeding American Staffordshire Terriers we have been fortunate to have produced many champions, including specialty winners. Every breeding we make is with the intent of producing an even better dog.
Located in Tennessee and Ohio we produce and show quality American Staffordshire Terriers. Our focus is on temperament, conformation and structural soundness. Mr. Peterson is a member of the Staffordshire Terrier Club of America and is recognized as a Breeder of Merit by the American Kennel Club.

It is most important, however, never to forget that every dog will be someone's family member, so our most important consideration is temperament. We are proud to produce dogs that are easy to live with, easy to train, and "winners" to their families even if they never go to a dog show.

Absolute Temperament Guarantee!
