They should live indoors as their short faces makes it unsuited for them to stay outdoors for more than a few minutes in a hot or humid climate, they should always have access to shade and fresh drinking water and should be monitored on hot days to ensure that they don't overheat.

A good suggestion is a boxer, they share the Staffy's enthusiasm and are also big, muscular dogs, who are usually fun to be around and don't realize how strong they are.
