Nose Butter to the rescue for Am Staff Terrier dry nose!
Just rub a bit of Nose Butter™ across the top of the nose and allow it to melt in.

Don’t worry, it soaks in FAST. If they lick a bit, no worries, all organic good stuff. Apply 2-3x a day for 1-3 days and then rub the crusties off with a bit of tissue.Your Am Staff Terrier dry nose can be maintained with regular application of Nose Butter.

American Staffordshire Terrier History: Bulldogs and black and tan terriers were the beginning of the American Staffordshire Terrier. Other names were the Bull-and-Terrier Dog, Half and Half, Pit Dog or Pit Bullterrier. This breed is now called the Staffordshire Bull Terrier in the United Kingdom. They were originally used by butchers to keep bulls under control and by hunters to hunt wild boar.
Sadly, these dogs were also used for bull-fighting and to bait bears. When this activities were outlawed, dog fighting took their place. There dogs were fought in arenas called “pits.”
When these dogs were brought to the United States they were called the Pit Dog, Pit Bull Terrier, the American Bull Terrier, and the Yankee Terrier. In 1972 they were renamed the American Staffordshire Terrier to differentiate them from the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
